At Sunday's Pride Parade in Montréal, CQGL - the Conseil Québécois des Gais et Lesbiennes (Québéc Council of Gays and Lesbians) - decided to use their public platform during the parade to showcase anti-gay statements from some of the most prominent anti-gay politicians in the world.
The campaign featured 8 politicians, including two from Canada, one from Turkey, one from France, one from Italy, and the United States' very own Michele Bachmann. Each public figure had their image, name, and position featured on a placard, festooned with the rainbow flag, and an anti-gay quote directly beneath their face.
The quote on Bachmann's card reads, "Gays are part of Satan's plans."
Other featured homophobes include Maurice Vellacott, the Conservative Member of Parliament in Canada; Alessandra Mussolini, a member of the European Parliament for Central Italy (and the granddaughter of the famed Italian dictator); Christine Boutin, a French presidential candidate; and Selma Aliye Kavaf, Turkey's minister of women and family affairs.
