A Drag Queen Talks About Homophobia, Ignites A National Debate, Then Beautifully Sums It All Up

This speech, given by Rory O'Neill dressed as Panti Bliss, is incredibly poignant and moving. And at the root of the very important points about what it feels like to experience homophobia and oppression is the issue that's addressed here: How is it acceptable for the majority to tell people who are experiencing oppression and homophobia that they're not — and they can't even talk about it?

I don't think O'Neill — or anyone — should have their voices and experiences silenced. The oppressors shouldn't define oppression. You can share this by hitting the Facebook and Twitter buttons below.
