A Melbourne man, known as Brian Mc, is petitioning to have "Golden Gaytime" re-named with concerns that the name is ‘offensive’ and ‘outdated’ to Australia’s LGBTQ+ community.
In the petition, Brian states “Gay’s meaning primarily is related to sexuality.
As a Gay man I have needed to fight to be myself, overcoming many things in my life, I am a proud Gay man.”
“As a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, I believe my sexual identity is owned by me, not a brand and that the outdated meaning no longer applies.
Nup, there is absolutely no reason to change the name of Golden Gaytime given it's entirely inoffensive. This isn't a Coon cheese situation. @streetsicecream and @unilever need to not pander to this nonsense: https://t.co/UsfLQWeCEl @newscomauHQ— Benedict Brook (@BenedictBrook) March 24, 2021
Within the last 12 months, Redskins became Red Ripper, Chicos became Cheekies and Coon Cheese was renamed Cheer Cheese. Is the number up for Golden Gaytimes too?
