- I did look earlier but didn't see anything. There is a page for anti-gay slogans so I thought there should be one for pro-gay slogans as well. I ended up adding symbols too (actually the anti-gay has one or two symbols too). I'll look again just in case. The Ungovernable Force 07:37, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
- well, there is a page now on that list--this one! I did a search on the page for the words "symbol" and "slogan" and didn't find anything. Also, the category for LGBT symbols does not have any pages about LGBT symbols in general. The Ungovernable Force 07:41, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
Things to add
I will probably add some trans stuff later, I'm just tired of working on the article right now. Please expand this page--someone, anyone....The Ungovernable Force 07:41, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
Cite sources, please
Remember, this is an encyclopedia that disallows original research: (Wikipedia:Original research) - articles without cited sources tend to be nominated for deletion by rampant censor-happy-types. Davodd 07:03, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
- Most of what I put in was taken from other wikipedia articles. I don't know about the recent additions though, although they are real since I've seen them. The Ungovernable Force 15:26, 17 April 2006 (UTC)
Could you add under popular slogans...
Adam and Steve need love too!
- Find a source and you can add it yourself! I've never seen that though. The Ungovernable Force 07:37, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
- You're right, but I created this first so actually, LBBT symbols is redundant. I actually prefer that name though. Perhaps we should merge any content that isn't there over there and delete this page. Or else merge both to LGBT slogans and symbols.

I created this page about a month before the LGBT symbols page came about, but "LGBT symbols" is much nicer looking at this time. I think that either: A)This page should be merged there or B)Both pages should be merged to LGBT slogans and symbols or something like that. I prefer option B because it includes slogans and symbols and has a more inclusive name. I remember spending a lot of time trying to come up with an inclusive name for the article and didn't really like the one I originally came up with. I can't believe I never thought of something as simple as that. Ungovernable ForceGot something to say? 07:50, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
- I think that "LGBT symbols" should be kept for symbols, and any useful non-redundant symbol content in this article should be moved over there, leaving the slogans information for this article. I'm not sure that symbols and slogans are similar enough that they have to be treated in one article, and the other article (LGBT symbols) is getting kind of long without slogans.

- I don't really see a problem with both slogans and symbols in one article since they serve the same general purpose (activism/awareness/identity). However, keeping them separate is perfectly fine. If they are to remain separate then "and symbols" should be dropped from this article's name. Actually, this article needs to be renamed anyway since these slogans are used by the entire LGBT community, not just homosexual males. It should be moved to Slogans of LGBT activist groups or something along those lines. Koweja 17:41, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
- I don't support a merge as symbols should instead be cleaned up and expanded and simply summarized in this article which also should be cleaned-up. After each is cleaned up light cross-referencing of slogans and symbols used in conjunction might be appropriate but I haven't seen a huge trend in that so merging is likely to result in two big sections one on symbols and one on slogans. Possibly renamimg this article and adding a summary of this in the symbols so they are companions would make sense; Slogans of LGBT empowerment perhaps? Benjiboi 00:41, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
- I removed the edit adding "Blow me. Woooooo!". If someone knows something I don't know, go ahead and re-add it. Donimo (talk) 05:11, 11 December 2007 (UTC)
Americans For Truth?
Americans For Truth (AFT) did not come up with the slogan "Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Homophobia's got to go!" Just take a look at there website, their more like "Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Homophobia can't go (because then we'll be out a job)!" They did take a picture of a group of activists that were holding a sign with said slogan but did not come up with it. This article lists slogans that support LGBT rights. The said slogan does do that but not the organization. I have bolded the portion from the cited article that shows that AFT did not come up with the slogan.
"One of the groups opposing Jennings's appointment is Americans for Truth. The group has included photos and videos on their Web site from an LGBT youth march in Massachusetts where kids held hands, carried signs, and shouted slogans like, 'Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Homophobia's got to go!'
Americans For Truth urges people to contact Duncan and "urge him to withdraw Jennings's appointment," or contact Obama and members of Congress.
'We don't want radical, anti-Christian bigots who push destructive sexual behaviors and identities on our youth setting policies affecting America's schoolchildren,' the site [Americans For Truth] says."
I would recommend that origins slogan be listed as "Unknown" if they cannot be found. I will try to find out where the slogan came from but if I (or anyone else?) cannot then I will list the origins as unknown. LadySydney (talk) 21:33, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry for the crappy grammar in the last post, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. I found the source of the slogan. NOW came up with it, as demonstrated on this website. I will be putting that on the article and I will cite it with the website mentioned above. LadySydney (talk) 16:00, 29 June 2010 (UTC)
