Months ago I found out about a site nohomophobes.com and was shocked at the number of times anti-gay slurs are used on twitter per second. I guess I shouldn’t be shocked, but it’s really eye opening to see it captured in real-time and have the totals shown as well. And this is JUST on twitter. Imagine how many other social networks, text messages, youtube comments and more are not shown here.
Now they’ve released an ad campaign as well. I think it’s brilliant. Be sure to check out their site and watch the video below.
It’s no wonder that our LGBT youth (heck, even the entire community) live with such self-esteem issues
