A series of posts spanning from 2009 to 2014 expose an array of problematic views from the Labour Councillor for Oval Ward, Lambeth. “And I saw the best bad t****y pushing a wheelchair in a gold pleated skirt blowing a whistle really loud!

Ultimate Camden town Experience,” Normal wrote in December 2009. In January 2012, he remarked that he was dancing like he was at a “very t****y wedding reception.” Appearing to acknowledge the problematic nature of his comments, Normal tweeted his frustration over not being able to say what he wants on certain social media platforms in May 2014. “You can’t say T****Y on Facebook anymore but you can on twitter. #T****Y,” he wrote.

Responding to someone who questioned what he means, he said: “They’re removing posts apparently with the word T****Y.” “T****Y is our word,” Normal added in a follow up tweet on the same day. “We’ve used it in London for years.” The post Racist and transphobic tweets from ‘La’ t-shirt creator Philip Normal emerge appeared first on GAY TIMES.
