antigay
News about those who are making anti-marriage and antigay moves all over the world. First coined in the 1960s as a portmonteau of the words homosexual and phobia, the term homophobia rose in frequency as a means of labeling the societal backlash to the emerging gay rights movement. Antigay, as a noun or adjective, is a modern extension of this etymology, which is often applied to preachers, pundits, or politicians who express unabashedly prejudiced views of the LGBT community and its allies.
