Modern homophobia

Freddie Hull explores the pernicious effects of modern homophobia.

“It has become normalised to be treated differently to straight couples. Gay couples are often somewhat of an accessory or delegated to being ‘the gay ones’ instead of a respected relationship. Any attempt to educate offenders about this usually results in abrasive denial instead of listening. Because they did not use homophobic language, they cannot see how their actions make gay couples feel lesser than straight couples”
