Antisemitism and LGBTQphobia go hand in hand. The disturbing photos from this past weekend’s neo-Nazi rally in Florida are revolting yet sadly unsurprising. Hate persists.
Slanders of Jews and LGBTQ folks as predatory are age-old. They normalize the discrimination and violence that inevitably follows.
We stand firmly in solidarity with the Jewish and LGBTQ communities in Florida. To our allies, please bear in mind that many individuals belong to both of these communities, enduring a double burden of discrimination and hate. When hateful voices gain momentum, it is incumbent upon all of us to speak out; silence is not an option.
