The fundamentalist and LGBTQ+ hate group, Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) has announced its members plan to picket The Montrose Center in Montrose, and the Gender Infinity Conference at the University of Houston on Friday.

WBC, arguably the most obnoxious and rabid hate group in America announced their ‘God H8s Trannies’ tour will land on Friday, September 16 at the Montrose Center. They claim the LGBT+ community center is an “oozing, purulent sore of sodomite contagion: pushing proud sin and the proliferation of incurable disease.”

According to WBC’s website the planned picket will occur at the Montrose Center, located at 401 Branard St. from 11:00 a.m. to 11:40 a.m. The group then will travel to the University of Houston to picket the Gender Conference from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.

WBC is known for its harsh anti-LGBTQ+ beliefs and the crude signs its members carry at their frequent protests. When gay student Matthew Shepard died of injuries inflicted in a brutal hate crime in Laramie, Wyo. WBC was vaulted to worldwide infamy as they protested Shepard’s funeral. Members picketed carrying signs that read “God Hates Fags” and “AIDS Kills Fags Dead.”
