TBT - Anita Bryant rails against gays in 1978
For those too young to remember and the rest of us too old to forget, former beauty queen Anita Bryant was the first to demonstrate the power of anti-lgbt propaganda and stereotypes in legislative fights over lgbt equality. It wasn't just Dade County in Florida where she did this. Bryant undertook a nationwide campaign which saw some success before it eventually collapsed on her. Check out the above clips and note the language and semantics she and her supporters use. See how similar it is to the anti-lgbt propaganda being used now, particularly the invectives thrown against the transgender community.
