Devine Wins Top GLORIA Award

The GLORIA’s (Gay and Lesbian Outrageous Ridiculous and Ignorant Comment Awards) have been announced for 2012, and there are some real shockers. The awards are aimed at highlighting homophobic comments from different sectors of the community. Categories include international comment, media, politics/law, religion, sport and ‘silliest comment from the GLTBI community’.

Amongst winners was Pastor Peter Walker, who took home the award in the religion for stating ‘I’m convinced that homosexuals (re)produce themselves by molesting children’.

The overall winner was columnist Miranda Devine, who linked the London Riots and homosexuality. You can read all the winning comments at
