Racism Problem In the Gay Community
There was a poll taken about racism in the gay community and the results are a little shocking.
The survey found that 80% of black men, 79% of Asian men, 75% of South Asian men, 64% of mixed race men, and 100% of Arab men have experienced some form of racism in the LGBTI community. Whether it be getting called racial slurs on dating apps or just feeling ignored by others in the community, the vast majority of gay men of color have seen these issues first hand.

A Performer In Blackface At A Gay Pride Festival?
When I’ve ranted about the way straight actors in Hollywood portray gay characters in gayface, I have often said that if any other race were treated the same way gay men are treated there would be huge uproars. But I never thought I’d see the day it would happen in RL, and that a gay person would actually do something like this at a gay pride event.
I think it’s wrong.

Leanne Harper is a white performance artist who applies dark makeup to her face in order to look more like Beyonce.
