Advocates call on prime minister to condemn materials labelling homosexuality a ‘curse of death’ and urging Australians to ‘stop the fags’
Materials labelling homosexuality a “curse of death” and claiming 92% of children of gay parents suffer abuse have surfaced in two separate incidents of homophobic campaigns against same-sex marriage.
Advocates have condemned the material, which included a poster urging Australians to “stop the fags” in Melbourne and a leaflet printed in English and Mandarin found in Hurstville, Sydney.
