Homophobic bride's messages to gay makeup artist

Gay Makeup Artist Shares Viral Texts From Homophobic Bride Who Asks ‘How Can You Be Latina And Gay?’

A hair and makeup artist who goes by the name of Kristian on social media shared an exchange she endured with a friend of a former customer who turned out to be unfortunately homophobic. The individual asked Kristian if she was gay, and when she received an affirmative, declared that they “don’t want a gay person doing my wedding.”

Her loss. Kristian is clearly good at what she does, and $115 for both hair and makeup is a bargain.

Kristian decided to share the exchange to show that “homophobia is a real issue still in 2019” and to ask everyone to “please just be kind to everyone you meet.”

The exchange starts out innocently enough, with the potential customer asking for prices and then inquiring if she can ask Kristian a few questions. The first question, unfortunately, turned out to be “are you gay?”

Kristian, probably sensing what was coming, said yes and then asked “what does that have to do with your wedding or my services?”

The bride answers that she doesn’t want “a gay person doing my wedding,” which, again, her loss. But it probably would have ended there as Kristian replied with a very amicable “that’s totally fine, you have a nice day!”

But homophobia is never that easy, is it?

“I still have more questions,” the bride says. Really? “How can you be a latina [sic] woman and be gay?”

Um.

She then goes on to explain, apparently assuming that every Latinx person is Catholic, that being gay is a “sin” and that she’s “sorry that you’ve chosen a path that’s going to send you straight to hell.”

Sure you are, Karen.

This homophobe then has the nerve to say that if Kristian would change her mind about being gay “let me know please so i can book you.”

Kristian did not respond after wishing the homophobic bride a nice day, instead opting to share the exchange on Twitter. Her tweet has received nearly 50,000 retweets and over 219,000 likes, with people flooding in to show their support for her and all LGBTQ+ people.

Most people, however, are here to trash this homophobe who’d turn down a bargain because “ew gay.”

Hopefully Kristian now has enough business to fill up her schedule for as long as she needs. She should, because those eyebrows?
