Homophobia and racism are problems at right angles: gay people can be racist, members of ethnic groups homophobic. Indeed, there is a terrifying level of violent homophobia among some ethnic and religious minorities in this country, just as in the white Christian-influenced majority.
Sensitivity to other cultures is currently valued far more highly than human rights for gay people. Even gay people get caught in this trap: OutRage rightly criticises the Church of England, but has yet to campaign against, say, the far more extreme homophobia of an important minority of Muslim clerics.
