(NaturalNews) A gay pride youth party in Taiwan went horribly wrong last night as a special effect consisting of huge clouds of rainbow-colored glitter particles was launched into the air over the partygoers. To the shock and horror of everyone, the metallic glitter ignited, raining down a firestorm of death upon hundreds of attendees who were burned alive.
Although the lying leftist media is desperately trying to state this event had nothing to do with “gay pride,” as the following photos show, it was sponsored by an openly gay organization featuring a sperm logo and gay men associated with an international gay modeling organization. I’m not blaming gays for this horrible tragedy, but let’s not be ridiculous and try to claim this gay pride rainbow party wasn’t a gay pride rainbow party. It clearly was. You’d have to be wildly delusional not to instantly recognize this. (Natural News is not an anti-gay publisher. We’ve long argued for universal freedom to love and live with whomever you want. We are a “pro choice on everything” publisher with a social libertarian view, arguing that marriage shouldn’t be “licensed” by the government in the first place.)
The Natural News Taiwan office has given us exclusive information concerning this event which is not being reported elsewhere in the western media:
• Over 600 people were injured in the firestorm, not the 200 or so being mentioned in the media. Local hospitals are completely overrun with burn victims, and some victims with less severe burns were turned away from hospitals.
• There is no common knowledge among Taiwan citizens — who are almost all urban city dwellers — that dispersed metallic particles can easily ignite in the air. Although this knowledge is very common in the Midwest of the USA, for example, where grain elevators must be on constant alert to prevent grain explosions, nobody in Taiwan seemed to have any knowledge that this could happen. That clouds of metallic glitter particles could spontaneously ignite was a complete surprise to most Taiwanese, even after the event took place.
• The event was planned as a celebration of gay marriage legalization around the world. It was not heavily promoted as a “gay pride” event because being openly gay is not widely accepted in Taiwan society (which is still culturally quite conservative as far as family values go). Instead, the event was promoted using the key word “rainbow,” the universal global symbol associated with gay pride.
• The very glitter that ignited and rained fire down upon the hundreds of youth attending the gay pride party was colored with the same hues as the rainbow. FACT: Many color pigment chemicals are made using metals which can ignite when dispersed into tiny particles and subjected to an ignition source. Magnesium shavings, for example, are a common ingredient in fire starting devices used by preppers. Personally, I find it astonishing that there are people in this world who still don’t know metals can ignite and burn.
• UPDATE: Personal lighters were found at the scene, and Taiwanese investigators now believe these lighters were the source of ignition.
• UPDATE: Not every person at the event was gay, of course. The event was promoted as a “color play / rainbow” event, which is universally associated with gay pride. Natural News is being told that some people attending the event were not aware of the connection between “rainbow” and “gay,” although most youth in today’s connected society are completely aware of this universal symbolism
It’s abundantly clear that the Taiwan gay pride “rainbow” event was sponsored by gay advocacy organizations. This link, of course, is being vehemently denied in the mainstream media, which does not want to link gay pride events to a catastrophe that harmed hundreds of people. I’m still not sure why there’s such a desperate effort to try to deny that this was a gay pride event when it clearly was.
The facts are undeniable and irrefutable. Of course the event was a “gay pride” event. It was sponsored with the logo of a sperm, from a gay male apparel company.
A closer look at the sperm logo reveals it to be a corporate sponsor called New Urban Male which features gay models promoting clothing fashions:
New Urban Male Taiwan, a key corporate sponsor of the event, features a Facebook page with a rainbow teddy bear and a “Love Wins” balloon, along with gay men in a headlock, wearing fashionable underwear. The “love wins” hashtag is what’s being widely circulated in the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage nationwide.
Here at Natural News, we pray for those youth who took part in this event and were injured by the hellstorm of fire that rained down upon them. We hope they will heal and recover as quickly as possible, and we are publishing this story in the hope that the international community will come to the aid of these victimized youth.
More importantly, I also hope that Taiwan will recognize the need for far greater public safety regulations regarding staged events. For decades, Taiwan has lagged on commonsense public safety regulations that could have saved lives. I remember that even when I lived in Taiwan, there were regular reports of school busses burning children alive because they couldn’t find the exit, or entire restaurants full of people being killed in tragic fires because the exits were blocked.
What Taiwan keeps learning over and over again, unfortunately, is that safety standards matter. And you probably shouldn’t fill the air with tiny particles of magnesium and other combustible substances when there are ignition sources nearby.
It’s a sad day when anybody — gay, straight or otherwise — is horribly burned in such an ill-planned event, especially when the tragedy that took place should have been readily preventable.
My heart goes out to all the victims of this horrible tragedy in Taiwan, and I can only hope that Taiwan’s public safety regulators will now assert sufficient public safety guidelines to prevent such a catastrophe from happening again.
