In France a prominent left-wing gay activist has written a pamphlet denouncing what he claims is the gay community's drift to the "far right".
"...through rejection of Islam, it has let itself be picked up by the far right. Didier Lestrade denounces a recent European danger: a far right that is xenophobic and pro-gay. This ideological novelty is extremely successful in Holland, Belgium and Austria. To improve her image, Marine Le Pen is applying the "pinkwashing" recipe in France. Succesfully, in Lestrade's view.

Didier Lestrade declares: the communuty of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgendered (LGBT) has moved to the right. "For several years now", he says...The "cautious" gay press - Têtu - is desperate to cover it up so as not to tarnish the image of homosexuals.

"They are racists and are no longer afraid to say it (...) these aren't fascists, they are gays who've drifted right", he writes.

Lestrade is convinced we are witnessing the rise of homonationalism: "We talk about gays, but I don't dare to think about the number of lesbians who are going to vote for Marine Le Pen...".

Could it be that images of homosexuals swinging from poles in Iran, could have made them think what would be their fate if sharia was implemented in France.
