The Gay Village Hoax proves you are all Bigots!

Its a wonderful day in the Gaybourhood!  Well not really, the Gated Gay Village,  that would discriminate against straight people,  turned out to be an elaborate hoax to raise homophobia awareness.

The Gay Village project described itself as a scheme to create a prejudice-free gated community, complete with luxuries like tennis courts and a cooking school.

Planned for a site outside Tilburg in the south of the Netherlands, it was endorsed by established local officials, estate agents and developers.

Yet it has now emerged that they were convinced to play along by the Roze Maandag (Pink Monday) foundation, which every year organizes a day of the Tilburg Fair that is dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues.

In a post on its website entitled “A Serious Hoax”, Roze Maandag explained how they were inspired to act by recent surveys showing nearly a quarter of gay men in the Netherlands – regarded as one of the most tolerant countries in the world – did not feel safe in their own neighborhoods.

“Although Gay Village is not real, intolerance against the gay community is,” the statement read.

Before last night’s revelation, the “plans” for a gated gay-only village “with all mod cons” had been met with an outpouring of criticism and anger on social media.
