In an effort to fight back against the divisive rhetoric of anti-LGBTQ hate groups like the Westboro Baptist Church, Family Research Council and Focus on the Family, Hornet — the world’s premier gay social network and app — has unveiled a brand-new billboard campaign that addresses those hate groups head-on. The first instance of the Hornet billboard campaign goes up today, June 8, in Washington, D.C.
Hornet’s focus on three of America’s “headquarters of hate” relied on the help of watchdog group the Southern Poverty Law Center. Following the billboard in Washington, D.C. — home of the Family Research Council — two more billboards will be raised in Topeka, Kansas, and Colorado Springs, Colorado, home bases of the Westboro Baptist Church and Focus on the Family, respectively.
“We are erecting these billboards across the country to draw attention to places from which hateful rhetoric and influence on anti-LGBTQ legislation stem. The billboards are a beacon of hope for the LGBTQ residents of these areas and a reminder to local leadership that we will not be silenced and we will not be erased,” notes Hornet President Sean Howell.
