Teachers receive tonnes of homophobic letters claiming that gays can ‘turn straight’


Teachers union the National Union of Teachers (NUT) announced the new pro-LGBT policy and became a target for anti-gay abuse. the members of the NUT called for children to be taught “age-appropriate” content on LGBT matters earlier this year and since then they got bombarded with electronic and handwritten letters with homophobic claims and ‘gay cure therapy’ promotion. One letter, not signed by name, quotes the Daily Mail and the Bible in suggesting that young people are being “led astray” by a “transgender agenda” being pushed by “activists”. Another claims that it is not “moved by personal hatred against any individual”, but goes on to describe homosexuality as a “sin” and a “weakness”. It goes on to say that they will “take a principled stand” by praying “for the judges, legislators and government officials” who push for same-sex marriage. Some of the correspondence came from as far afield as the US state of Virginia. An email sent to Annette Pryce – the NUT’s LGBT+ executive member, asks: “Tired of being gay? You can go straight!” It adds instructions to “Learn the real science about the nature, causes, prevention, and treatment of homosexuality and transgenderism (no prayer needed!)” Claiming: “Ex-gay therapy is compatible with the decriminalization of homosexuality and the humane treatment of everyone.”
