Darkness Vlad Tepes is spearheading a campaign to add a black stripe to the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender (LGBT) rainbow flag, which will represent the ‘growing’ gay goth community.
Mr Tepes, a goth, believes they should have equal rights to other strands of the gay community and said adding a black stripe to the rainbow flag would help change people’s perceptions of them in society.
Really? A coloured stripe is going to change my perception this man’s mentally ill?
He has previously spoken out asking for tolerance of his ‘vampire’ lifestyle. He regularly sleeps in a coffin and drinks animal blood.
Errr, yeah, it’s going to take a bit more than that!
However Lancashire LGBT and the openly gay Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans have said the rainbow flag already reflects the ‘full diversity’ of LGBT people.
Lancashire LGBT, a registered charity, said: “We wish the gay goth community well but our view is that the rainbow flag already reflects the full diversity of LGBT people.
“The designer of the flag, Gilbert Baker, said the stripes do not stand for specific sub groups but for themes such as life, healing, art, nature and spirits.”
Nice to see something other than immediate capitulation…
Mr Evans added: “You can’t get more inclusive than the gay community.
“The rainbow flag itself is used as a symbol recognising the diverse gay community.
“The EU flag only has 12 stars on it and is just symbolic of the countries in the organisation.
“We do not need to add further colours to differentiate gay goths.”
Hmmm, self-absorbed nutter meets self-righteous activist group – place your bets, ladies and gentlemen!
