What if you could move to a country where the LGBT community was the majority? In fact, the LGBT inhabitants weren’t only the majority, they were the governing power.
Believe it or not, that’s the idea behind Viktor Zimmerman’s plan to find a region large and affordable enough to plan a gay utopia.
And this wouldn’t be Fire Island in the summer, it would be an official polis with a single city, flag, laws and constitution.
Zimmerman is the executive director of the Gay Homeland Foundation, the organization behind this bold idea and he’s not fickle about trying to make it become a reality.
“We need a cultural and political centre, where we can develop new, better ways of gay living that are more suited to our nature,” Zimmerman told Vice in an interview. “There would be no more cultural oppression from the hetero; all the public spaces would be decorated with gay artwork.”
Gay Artwork = penises. Lots and lots of penises. And rainbows. (Gawd, I can’t stand rainbows.)
He also says that straights would be allowed to live in the country, but their numbers would be limitied and they wouldn’t get to make important decisions.
Because when leftists get absolute power, that’s how they treat people they define as ‘the other.’
I think the notion of a gay homeland is silly (in the 1978 dystopian movie ‘Americathon,’ the state of Nebraska was designated a gay homeland), but I’m not opposed to it. I’m all for people being able to create their own communities where they can live with minimal interference from distant, all-powerful Government. Of course, most people call me a dangerous, extremist right-winger for this belief.
