Kim Renders, a Queen’s University teacher, HuffPo blogger, and proud lesbian, arrived at her Kingston, Ontario home last Friday to find a rather aggressive and unprovoked letter in the mail. Addressed to the “lesbian bitches” at her address, the harassing five-paragraph letter demands that she and her partner leave the city under threat of physical violence.
The letter reads, in part:
We are a small but dedicated group of Kingston residents devoted to removing the scourge of homosexuality in our city. We know you and have been following you for the past several weeks and we wish for you to leave this city, before it is too late, for you. This will be the first of many reminders, each escalating to higher and higher levels of harassment and derailment. Since we have nothing personal against you, only against your sexuality, we suggest you move to more conductive climes like Vancouver, or preferably San Francisco.
Chilling and sickening that these folks think they have the ability and the right to remove all gay and lesbian citizens from Kingston.
