Student harassed by homophobic hate preacher drowns out his bigotry with bagpipes

‘I am a gay bagpiper and I’m proud.’ Student harassed by homophobic hate preacher drowns out his bigotry with bagpipes A student who was harassed by a homophobic street preacher responded in the best way, drowning his bigotry out with bagpipes. Brice Ehmig, a fourth year political science student at Florida Gulf Coast University, was sick of the preacher’s homophobic rants. On several ocassions, the preacher compared homosexuality to bestiality and yelled at her for holding hands with her girlfriend. And in a video on her Facebook page, Brice trolls the bigot by blaring out her bgpipes. ‘I have seen too much tragedy in the LGBTQ community to let a man in cargo pants tell me I am the embodiment of sin,’ she said. ‘I am a gay bagpiper and I’m proud.’ She added: ‘I decided since this is my last year at university that I should do things that make me feel brave. ‘After years of dealing with the homophobic comments aimed at me by the preacher, I felt I needed to stand up against these false prophets spewing bigotry. ‘I have fought hard for my rights.” When Brice approaches the ‘preacher’, you can hear him say: ‘Why are you doing this – do you not like the message?’ ‘I could see in his eyes and the tense veins in his face and neck that he was enraged by my presence,’ she said. ‘Then he started going on more about homosexuality, and earned my relentless playing even more so. I then called over my girlfriend and gave her a big kiss right in front of the “preacher” and group of people watching.’
