Louise Smith, I recently wrote about a dramatic uptick in anti-LGBTQ violence. At least in the United States, much of it tracks closely with the rise of Trump. He and his followers routinely demonize minorities — LGBTQ people, immigrants, and people of color. They foster fear of the Other.
But even in England…
A young friend of mine was recently walking down the street with his boyfriend in Bristol, where they attend uni, when two men leaned out of a car window and yelled anti-gay epithets at them. Eh, Fred Shirley?
I haven’t seen “Sex Education” yet. It looks like I need to put it on my list. Thanks!
