    Needed: LGBT fliers and posters

    Basically I'm looking for some flier, pamphlet, basically something I can hand out to people that at least mentions somewhere how the Co$ feels about homosexuality. I've been looking all over, and I really want something for an event I will be attending later this evening that supports the LGBT community. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    Yes I could use a flier with such info as well. I can't locate any either. Wasn't there an Operation: Pink Noise thread that had some of this stuff?

    There were a few threads that had letters or information relating to the issue, but they didn't have any fliers, pamphlets, or other protest media that could be handed out.

    Looking forward to what y'all put together! Thanks! :flowers:

    Mål you fucking rock. That's all I have to say. I was beginning to panic, but you seriously delivered and just in time. I'm officially putting you on my favorite person list.

    I tried to bait one of them in person about it, but she didn't give me anything.

    Just talk about how Hubbard's kid was gay and how Hubbard hated him n' stuff.

    Sauce on the Hubbard/Mascavige/Co$ admonition that homosexuals be "institutionalized."

    I know of no such admonition, considering that "Institutionalization" was a term for "permanent mental ward" back then- and we all know what LRH thought of psychs...

    PLZ to stick with documented fact- and avoid hyperbole.

    Beautiful. Time to advertise outside the Gay-Straight Alliance at my school.

    "Such people should be taken from the society as rapidly as possible and uniformly institutionalized; for here is the level of the contagion of immorality, and the destruction of ethics; here is the fodder which secret police organizations use for their filthy operations. One of the most effective measures of security that a nation threatened by war could take would be rounding up and placing in a cantonment, away from society, any 1.1 individual who might be connected with government, the military, or essential industry; since here are people who, regardless of any record of their family's loyalty, are potential traitors, the very mode of operation of their insanity being betrayal. In this level is the slime of society, the sex criminals, the political subversives, the people whose apparently rational activities are yet but the devious writhings of secret hate."

    we should avoid using this one, the largest text are the words from scientology bashing homosexuality, people don't look past the largest words so they'll think we're bashing homosexuality even if a closer look shows that we're actually supportive. People will have a hard time shaking this first impression and end up walking away confused. It happened to us in Philly on at a 4/4 miniraid where the header of one of our flyers was "Scientology", even though the subheader said it was a dangerous cult people didn't read that far down before they started forming opinions and they thought that we were with scientology.

    Same thing happened with us. People were reluctant to come up, but curiosity got the better of them and most reacted with, "oh! I thought you guys were for Scientology! Yeah, fuck 'em."

    Though I don't agree with you entirely, I like that one just fine. Though your prediction will most definitely prove true with some people.

    I'd be interested in the JPG. The computer I can print from does not have Photoshop.

    re: Needed: LGBT fliers and posters

    It's two years later. An LGBT group warning people about Scientology has started up on Facebook: Login | Facebook

    And a basic blog is connected: Scientology and Homosexuality

    There are a bunch of people in Sydney who want to do flier raids, but don't have graphic design skills and called out to Anons for help.

    So, if you're motivated to help out, fliers educating people about Hubbard's views would be most welcome.

    The second flier above looks strong, but I take note of the comment about people thinking it is gay-bashing if they don't stop to read it. Still, the image could be useful on the website. Obviously, they're lacking in that department at this stage.

    All contributions welcome.

    Film-maker Paul Haggis quits Scientology over gay rights stance -
    Oscar-winning writer of Crash and Million Dollar Baby denounces tolerance of 'gay-bashing' after 35 years in church -
    Film-maker Paul Haggis quits Scientology over gay rights stance | World news |

    Former Scientologist Jason Beghe objects to the entrenched homophobia displayed by Scientology officials:
    "Beghe says the proof that Scientology was no longer working for him came when he was almost killed in a car accident. After the Ls, he points out, that shouldnt happen. A clear isnt supposed to have a car accident. Youre supposed to be practically immortal.

    "To the Scientologists, the accident was an indication that someone was suppressing Beghe. So they pulled him in for more interrogation.

    "What about this gay person youre friends with, Beghe says one official asked him, implying that somehow the gay friend was causing Beghes clear state to be sabotaged. When Beghe objected, he says the official responded, "Well, hes gay".

    Sorry, I am busy and don't think I could get anything decent done in time for Saturday :(

    Can we ever be friends?

    Re: Needed: LGBT fliers and posters

    Crap! I didn't see this until now. Can I get a confirmation that there's still short-term demand for this project, i.e. there's time for them to print and prepare them that they'd actually get used?

    If so, I might see what I can do, although I'm not very good at designing fliers. I was thinking of some sort of 3-panel design that folds into a square for easy handling.

    Panel 1: Some eye-catching graphic / quote (if I can think of one), with main theme, e.g. "What does Scientology really think about homosexuality?"

    Panels 2-3: Fleshing out main points. Quotes are paraphrased here so you know what I'm talking about, but obv. referenced correctly for the real version:

    - Compare/contrast Scientology's public relations
    - The Dianetics quote: "The sexual deviant, blah blah, including homosexuality, is actually quite ill physically..."
    - Staff contract listing homosexual experiences as a possible strike that would prevent someone from being eligible to join staff. Also wonderfully lists homosexual experiences right after being put in jail, committing a crime, or being charged with a felony.
    - People like OT8Michael who found Scn would try to "fix" their homosexuality
    - The Haggis/Beghe stuff

    - Final link to some site for more info ( Somewhere else?)

    Good? Bad? Li'l help?

    Hey mate..

    I am the one that wants to do the flyer raid on Oxford st.. I am still desperatly searching for a flyer... If you could organise something that would be fantastic...

    Re: Needed: LGBT fliers and posters

    Gotcha, thanks, currently trying to flesh out an idea in the little time I have. It's probably going to be really far from ideal, and I'm bad at this sort of thing, but I'll see if I can get anywhere with it in the next few hours. No promises... :\

    Does anyone know if Aussies use the term "LGBT" rather than "GLBT"? Just want to make it sound as natural as possible. Here in the U.S., they tend to use the latter, but I'm under the impression that in Aus-land it's the former... right?

    ^ I'm totally stealing part of that design, haha.
    Should have a decent tri-folding design up in a little while longer if anyone's interested.

    Re: Needed: LGBT fliers and posters

    Okay, here's the best I could do on short notice if anyone wants to use this one. They're designed to be folded twice, into an S-shape, and then cut along the horizontal cutting line.

    Preview (don't save this low-res version):

    Sorry for the flaws - some of the fonts are kind of weak, and it's maybe borderline tl;dr, etc. Did the best I could for now and need to crash for bed. Good luck!
