What Are Those Sneaky Gays Up To?
To hear some people talk, you'd get the impression that LGBT people have some kind of hidden agenda or ulterior motive. You might think LGBT people are up to no good, that they have nefarious and sinister intentions and that they mean to bring down the fabric of our society. Based on the language some folks use, you might come to the conclusion that LGBT people are plotting all manner of evil schemes. So what is this hidden gay agenda? What kind of conspiracy are those sneaky gay people plotting?
The bias in speech
is evident when you hear someone refer to LGBT
people thusly... Admitted Homosexual...
Avowed Homosexual... Practicing
Homosexual. Instead, the preferred
verbiage is "Openly Gay." You may even hear
people refer to the "homosexual lifestyle."
Such rhetoric might suggest that being a lesbian
or gay man is somehow shameful or inherently
secretive. Coming out of the closet and being
open about being gay should be seen as a
positive and courageous act.
You will sometimes hear people talk about the Homosexual Agenda or the Gay Agenda. Instead, the conversation should be about... the Gay Rights Movement... the Civil Rights Movement... the Human Rights Movement.
"Lesbian and gay movement" accurately describes the historical effort to achieve understanding and equal treatment for gays and lesbians. The real gay agenda concerns itself with equality. Nothing evil about that.
Notions of a "homosexual agenda" or a "gay agenda" are rhetorical inventions of anti-gay extremists seeking to portray as sinister the lesbian and gay civil rights movement.
You might hear
people talk in alarmist tones about how the gay
agenda is corrupting society and destroying the
traditional family structure. They speak
in terms of conspiracy. They label LGBT
people and their supporters as subversive.
And you will sometimes hear rhetoric that uses terms like, "Special Rights" instead of... Equal Rights... Equal Protection... Human Rights. It really is about “equal rights” not “special rights.” Anti-gay extremists frequently characterize civil rights and equal protection of the law for LGBT Americans as "special rights" in an attempt to energize opposition to anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws. In reality, LGBT people just want what everybody else has.

Homosexual Agenda: Rhetoric of the Opposition
"The homosexual agenda is incompatible
with the traditions of western civilization."
"The goals of those who would impose same-sex marriage on this country are nothing short of subversive. In order to validate their sexual choices, activists in support of homosexual behavior will stop at nothing—even if it means destroying marriage, redefining the family, outlawing all opposition as hate speech, and undermining our precious heritage of government."
In the US, the
term "the gay agenda" was first used in public
discourse in 1992 when the Family Research
Council, an American conservative religious group, released a video series called The Gay
Agenda as part of a pack of materials
campaigning on homosexual issues and the "hidden
gay agenda". In the same year the Oregon
Citizens Alliance used this video as part of
their campaign for Ballot Measure 9 to amend the
Oregon Constitution to prevent what the OCA
called "special rights" for gays, lesbians, and
The term is
applied to efforts to change government policies
and laws on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender issues - such as, for
example, same-sex marriage and civil unions, LGBT adoption, recognizing sexual orientation as
a protected civil rights minority
classification, LGBT military participation,
inclusion of LGBT history and themes in public
education, introduction of anti-bullying
legislation to protect LGBT minors - as well as
non-governmental campaigns and individual
actions that increase visibility and cultural
acceptance of LGBT people, relationships, and
identities. The term has also been used by some
social conservatives to describe alleged goals
of LGBT rights activists, such as recruiting
and brainwashing heterosexuals into what they term a
The idea of a homosexual agenda is also used by some religious critics of LGBT rights in conjunction with a putative ideology they refer to as "homosexualism" (as opposed to a synonym for homosexuality), using the term "homosexualists" to describe people who seek to advance LGBT emancipation. The use of "homosexualist" in this way first appeared in 1995 in Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams' book The Pink Swastika, to refer to any person, homosexual or not, who actively promotes homosexuality as morally and socially equivalent to heterosexuality as a basis for social policy.
