The mayor’s office of Medellin, Colombia, has launched an expensive propaganda campaign to foster greater acceptance of homosexuality in all its variants.
Under the theme, “Life is more peaceful if we talk about our differences,” the mayor’s office will distribute posters, flyers, postcards and other written materials in restaurants and public places promoting the different forms of homosexuality.
The promotional material will explain the meaning of terms such as transsexual, gay, bisexual, transvestite, and lesbian, among others. The first phase of the campaign is expected to cost some $18,000.
The plan has been coordinated by homosexual activists, and although city officials insist the purpose is “to call things by their names,” pro-family groups say they plan to strongly protest against it.
