Student gets revenge on homophobic preacher by playing bagpipes over him

2016-08-30
A student follows around a man preaching on the sin of homosexuals to drown him out. A bagpipe playing student drowns out a homophobic and transphobic preacher on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, USA. In the video, you can see Brice Ehmig walk up to the preacher and start playing her bagpipes, confronting the man wearing a 'Jesus saves from hell' T-shirt. The fourth year student told Daily Record that "I am a gay bagpiper and I'm proud. "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."

"I could see in his eyes and the tense veins in his face and neck that he was enraged by my presence. So after four minutes I did give him some space for a little bit. "Then he started going on more about homosexuality, and earned my relentless playing even more so." Well done to Ehming for standing up to the bigoted preacher in what has to be one of the best responses to homophobia.
