FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Phoenix, ARIZONA – Phoenix residents Sarah, 33, and her daughter Kayley, 15, had been eagerly looking forward to the One Direction’s show in their city on September 16th. They were taking part in Rainbow…
Okay I’m sorry. I, obviously of all people, am not homophobic but you need to realize this. Arizona is still set mostly on religious customs and gays aren’t accepted much there to begin with. And still, I don’t think it was appropriate to bring those things to a concert. Yes, believe me I think harry and Louis are as gay as the day is long but even if they weren’t, it’s not the place to be trying to force your beliefs on other people even though your beliefs make the world a better place.
Everybody knows that the rainbow is a sign of homosexuals and I see that they were trying to make people ‘strong’ and be comfortable with who they are but I really didn’t think a concert was the proper time and place to do that.
I’m gonna stop you right there. While they could expect stuff confiscated that shouldn’t have happened. But beside that. It’s often not even about Louis and Harry. People make rainbow signs because they are part of LGBTQ community and they thank the boys for making them strong. So don’t say that concert isn’t a place to do that if for most people front row sits will be one and only chance to thank their idols “in person”.
And forcing believes? They wanted to make LGBTQ audience visible not just to show we support the boys whichever their sexuality is but to show people that the boys are positive towards LGBTQ part of the fandom. How is that a bad thing? Forcing believes is going into church and preaching that god doesn’t exist. You don’t force anyone by sharing handmade rainbow items or waving rainbow flag. It’s raising awareness.
