A homophobic hate preacher was expertly silenced at Birmingham Pride by a drag queen who told him “everyone here loved him” even though he disagreed with everything he said.
Drag queen Adam Carver, who goes by the alias ‘Fatt Butcher’, was taking to the streets of Birmingham to take part in a Pride march on Saturday (May 27) when she spotted an anti-LGBT+ protester in the crowd.
In response to the protester harassing those attending the event, Carver said, “Repent your sins darling? Repent YOUR sins.
“You know what babes? We are love and the only sin happening right now is you spreading hate.’
Carver, who was equipped with a megaphone, added, “I’ve regretted everything and I want you to know that all the shit here loves you even if you hate us.”
“And everyone here disagrees with you.”
“So you guys are having a wonderful time burning in hell alone, ok girls.”
As they rode away on their “Big Gay Disco Bike,” Carver was heard saying, “No religion teaches you to hate other people.”
The intervention was greeted with cheers and cheers from the crowd.
The event continued with thousands of Pride-goers marching from the Library of Birmingham via Smallbrook Queensway before heading into the LGBTQ+ village.
Birmingham Pride is the UK’s largest two day gay pride event, attracting around 75,000 people each year.
Pride organizer Lawrence Barton said, “It is more important now than ever that we unite with the wider community and seek proper justice and equality for our community.” There should be no place for hatred and inequality in society.
“Birmingham Pride seeks to address the injustices faced by our community and stands in solidarity with our global LGBTQ+ family.”
“Our parade this year is groundbreaking and will be represented by over eight thousand people from our community and seen by around a hundred thousand people in the heart of the city.” I hope all participants will have a safe and happy Pride.”
