some people talk, you'd get the impression that LGBTQ
people have some kind of hidden agenda or ulterior
motive. You might think LGBTQ people are up to no good,
that they have nefarious and sinister intentions and
that they mean to bring down the fabric of our society.
Based on the language some folks use, you might come to
the conclusion that LGBTQ people are plotting all manner
of evil schemes. So what is this hidden gay agenda? What
kind of conspiracy are those sneaky gay people plotting?
The bias in speech is evident when you hear someone
refer to an LGBTQ person as an "admitted homosexual or
an avowed homosexual or a practicing homosexual".
Instead, the preferred verbiage is "openly gay." You may
even hear people refer to the "homosexual lifestyle."
Such rhetoric might suggest that being a lesbian or gay
man is somehow shameful or inherently secretive. Coming
out of the closet and being open about being gay should
be seen as a positive and courageous act.
You will sometimes hear people talk about the Homosexual
Agenda or the Gay Agenda. Instead, the conversation
should be about the Gay Rights Movement, the Civil
Rights Movement, or the Human Rights Movement.
"Lesbian and gay movement" accurately describes the
historical effort to achieve understanding and equal
treatment for gays and lesbians. The real gay agenda
concerns itself with equality. There is nothing evil or
sinister about that.
Notions of a "homosexual agenda" or a "gay agenda" are
rhetorical inventions of anti-gay extremists seeking to
portray as sinister the lesbian and gay civil rights
You might hear people talk in alarmist tones about how
the gay agenda is corrupting society and destroying the
traditional family structure. They speak in terms of
conspiracy. They label LGBTQ people and their supporters
And you will sometimes hear rhetoric that uses terms
like, "Special Rights" instead of "Equal Rights, Equal
Protection, and Human Rights." It really is about “equal
rights” not “special rights.” Anti-gay extremists
frequently characterize civil rights and equal
protection of the law for LGBTQ Americans as "special
rights" in an attempt to energize opposition to
anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws. In
reality, LGBTQ people just want what everybody else has.

that, "The homosexual agenda is incompatible with the
traditions of western civilization."
Conservative columnist Joshua Rhett Miller offered his
opinion in February 2010 on legislation being considered
by the US Congress. He said, "The gay discrimination
bill currently before congress will stifle free speech
and advance the homosexual agenda." He went on to
explain that the bill that was intended to prohibit
discrimination in public schools based on sexual
orientation and gender identity could even lead to
"homosexual indoctrination in the nation's classrooms."
Alan Sears, President of the Alliance Defending Freedom,
has stated, "The goals of those who would impose
same-sex marriage on this country are nothing short of
subversive. In order to validate their sexual choices,
activists in support of homosexual behavior will stop at
nothing, even if it means destroying marriage,
redefining the family, outlawing all opposition as hate
speech, and undermining our precious heritage of
The editorial/opinion page in a local newspaper posted
the following comment: "The gay agenda has to stop,
particularly in the schools. My grandson came home from
school and said they were talking about homo sapiens in
science class. We need to put a stop to this."

Agenda: Rhetoric of the Opposition
In the US, the term "gay agenda" was first used in
public discourse in 1992 when the Family Research
Council, an American conservative religious group,
released a video series called The Gay Agenda as
part of a pack of materials campaigning on homosexual
issues and the "hidden gay agenda". In the same year the
Oregon Citizens Alliance used this video as part of
their campaign for Ballot Measure 9 to amend the Oregon
Constitution to prevent what the OCA called "special
rights" for gays, lesbians, and bisexuals.
The term is applied to efforts to change government
policies and laws on lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender issues, such as, for example, same-sex
marriage and civil unions, LGBTQ adoption, recognizing
sexual orientation as a protected civil rights minority
classification, LGBTQ military participation, inclusion
of LGBTQ history and themes in public education,
introduction of anti-bullying legislation to protect
LGBTQ minors. The term is also used against
non-governmental campaigns and individual actions that
increase visibility and cultural acceptance of LGBTQ
people, relationships, and identities. The term has also
been used by some social conservatives to describe
alleged goals of LGBTQ rights activists, such as
recruiting and brainwashing heterosexuals into what they
term a "homosexual lifestyle."
The idea of a homosexual agenda is also used by some
religious critics of LGBTQ rights in conjunction with a
putative ideology they refer to as "homosexualism" (as
opposed to the accepted synonym for homosexuality),
using the term "homosexualists" to describe people who
seek to advance LGBTQ emancipation. The use of "homosexualist"
in this way first appeared in 1995 in Scott Lively and
Kevin Abrams' book The Pink Swastika, to refer to
any person, homosexual or not, who actively promotes
homosexuality as morally and socially equivalent to
heterosexuality as a basis for social policy.
