Franklin Graham travels around the world, telling tens of thousands of people that Satan runs the LGBT+ movement. His words justify violence and discrimination against LGBT+ people.
Matt immediately started a petition on All Out’s new petition platform calling on the O2 Arena in London to not give him a platform to preach hate. He asked his friends to sign and shared the petition on social media.
The response he received was overwhelming. Thousands of people signed, voicing a loud and resounding 'NO to hate' in London.
Within a few days, our community managed to draw attention to the issue and eventually ALL planned venues in the UK banned Franklin Graham.
VICTORY! Anti-LGBT+ preacher Franklin Graham said he’ll speak at the O2 Arena in London, as part of a UK tour. After more than 8,000 people signed Matt's petition, the venue said they WON’T host Graham’s LGBT+ hate. #lgbt #lgbti #lgbtq #lgbtrights #lgbtrightsarehumanrights #humanrights #rainbowrights #londonlgbt #lgbtlondon #notolgbthate #nodiscrimination #enddiscrimination #nohateinlondon
Since the launch of our petition platform, Matt has been joined by many other petition starters from all over the world.
