Pink News: Caribbean gays reject Beenie Man

C-FLAG’s objections are endorsed by the UK-based gay human rights group OutRage!, which has long worked in solidarity with the Caribbean lesbian and gay rights movement.

“We support C-FLAG’s campaign,” said David Allison of OutRage! “Beenie Man is an unreconstructed homophobe. He has never expressed a word of regret for his lyrics advocating the murder of gays and lesbians. Indeed, he has proudly boasted that he will not apologise and has continued to perform songs urging the killing of queers. It is totally inappropriate that he should be the musical voice of the 20/20 cricket series.”

Metro: Batwoman gets a gay makeover

But gay and lesbian campaign group Outrage says making Batwoman a lesbian is more about pandering to the fantasies of adult male readers than diversity.

Spokesman David Allison said: ‘Most pre-adolescent children neither know nor care about the sexuality of their comic book heroes. And it is well known that lots of men get turned on by the idea of lesbians.’
