An Irish paper company has found a creative way of repurposing homophobic leaflets opposing same-sex marriage.
Ireland is scheduled to vote on a same-sex marriage referendum next month. For the past several weeks, opponents have been distributing antigay leaflets claiming that being gay causes cancer and marriage equality “exposes” children to the “sounds of Sodomy.” Now, the owners of Daintree Paper, a small handmade paper shop in Dublin, are taking a stand.
The shop just launched a very special service: Gay wedding confetti! Made from shredded up antigay literature.
Daintree Paper is asking people to forward them any homophobic literature they receive, which they’ll turn into gay wedding confetti. Proceeds from the confetti sales will go to Yes Equality, the campaign group that supports same-sex marriage in Ireland.
“We believe in making beautiful things out of paper,” the company says. “We want to collect any negative and dishonest fliers, leaflets and online literature – and recycle them into something positive, with all proceeds going to Yes Equality.”
“Whenever ugly lies are printed… we’ll make beautiful confetti.”
