When Julie Baker from Baltimore, Maryland, put a few colourful lanterns in her garden, she probably thought the place was brightened up and bit and her neighbours appreciated it.
That was not the case, and she got a nasty shock when a seriously homophobic letter turned up at her house, threatening her with police action over her ‘relentlessly gay’ garden. Confused? Yeah, me too.
Basically, these lights (which really just look a little bit colourful and brighten the place up a bit)
Caused this letter:
Yeah, I have no words either, and the shocking letter prompted Julie to set up a crowdfunding page to make her garden as gay as possible – and we have to say, we commend her.
The horrendous note has obviously gone viral, and because of this, Julie has so far raised more than £8,000 – which is a massive achievement considering the initial target was £3,100. At least some people have some sense. If you want to donate to the campaign, you can do so here.
