nohomophobes.com is a website designed as a social mirror to show the prevalence of casual homophobia in our society. Words and phrases like “faggot,” “dyke,” “no homo,” and “so gay” are used casually in everyday language, despite promoting the continued alienation, isolation and — in some tragic cases — suicide of sexual and gender minority (LGBTQ) youth.

It’s run by and managed by The Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS) at the University of Alberta. The Institute supports groundbreaking research, policy development, education, community outreach, and services focused on sexual and gender minorities.
