The sender claimed to have lived in the area for 50 years, and called LGBTQ+ people “sick”.
Jessica Hanks, a Canadian woman living in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, has received a homophobic letter after winning a grand prize for decoration. As part of her garden design, she flew the rainbow flag, to support her gay child, and this is what earned the letter sender’s disgust.
The letter claimed that Hanks couldn’t be a “true Canadian” because of her visible support for the LGBTQ+ community, even though Canada frequently ranks as one of the most LGBTQ+ inclusive countries in the world. “I would imagine you expect this correspondence to be on [sic] of congratulating you for being the grand prize winner,” the letter started.
“But I am very sad to say that while perhaps your effort of decorating was good, you apparently have no pride in being a true Canadian in that I do believe that was a multi-coloured ‘flag’ hanging on your fence indicating the ‘sick’ portion of our society.”
The letter goes on to say that LGBTQ+ visibility is something that adds to the apparent “horrific name” that the town carries, and that “junk” like the flag and “pride followers have no place in society and certainly not Wetaskiwin.”
