No excuse for homophobia

Open letter to the person who slowly drove past me on Hillcrest Drive in Whitehorse around 2:15 p.m. on June, 25, 2015, unwound their van window and while driving past yelled: FFFAAAAGGG!

Yes! I am a FFFAAAAAGGG!

As you may remember I replied: YES I’M AHH SCREEAAMING FFFAAAAAGGG!

You need to know that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable. I have notified the RCMP of this hate crime. You need to know that this has happened to me before, and while this sort of thing did shock me at the time, I carry a phone on me with a camera so that one day I will be able to snap a shot of your licence plate.

I hope you are prepared for that eventuality, and its consequences: I would not want to be associated with the stigma of homophobia.
