Homophobic and transphobic flyers have appeared around Sydney, Australia, in the run up to this month’s state election. The flyers, which appeared on Reddit, are written in English, Arabic and Chinese. They warn Australians not to vote for the Labor Party unless they want their children to “become homosexuality.” “If you do not want your children to learn how to sponke their monkeys,” the flyer continues, “Do not vote Labor.” The election material was delivered around the suburb of Huntsville, which has a high immigrant population and predominantly voted against same-sex marriage in the 2017 postal vote. The poster also attacked transgender people by demanding people avoid voting Labor “if you do not want the children have 63 genders.”
