Watch: Strangers Are Confronted With Homophobia, How They React Will Touch You
By Yoon Sann Wong, 16 Oct 2015
Spain’s State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals conducted a social experiment in which an American gay couple asked pedestrians on Madrid’s streets to help them translate a letter from their hostel’s homophobic owner.
According to the mock message, the hostel owner accepted the pair’s reservation but on the condition that the duo refrained from being intimate with each other within the premises.
The message read, “If I see you touch one another, kiss each other, or do any pussy stuff around me in the hostel I will f**king punch your face.”
When asked to translate the letter, many strangers were willing to help the tourists, only to stop short upon viewing the nasty words. Some felt uncomfortable interpreting the message and several encouraged the pair to take the letter to the police.
