Texas fliers urge LGBT people to “follow your fellow faggots” by committing suicide: VIDEO
A flier posted to a bus stop in Houston, Texas quoted suicide statistics related to LGBT people and encouraged gay people to kill themselves.
The flier urged people to “Follow your fellow faggots.” Another flier at Westheimer and Stanford in Montrose called for “racial purity.”
The man who took a photo of the fliers said:
“Needless to say, it was a little unsettling.
“I was scared and very rattled, especially with all the other things going on in the country right now.
“These fliers could be the beginning of something else.”
