Let’s face it — mainstream media is running more LGBTQ cable TV ads than ever before. One has to wonder are those ads targeting the LGBTQ community or the Black populace; deployed to aid in “winning Black folk over.”
Irrespective of what the ads true intentions are; for decades, the LGBTQ community has been under immense pressure from religious groups and the broader heterosexual community about changing their sexual orientation to align with mainstream society [i.e., heterosexuality, traditional marriage, procreation, etc.], and even the media, has at times, portrayed the community, or at least segments of it as weird and creepy.
Let’s pray for our LGBTQ brothers and sisters in that whatever crisis’ they are facing, whether it’s health or matters involving social alienation, that the demographic can weather the storm. And perhaps so much hate between the heterosexual community and the LGBTQ community is mitigated to a level where love conquers all.
