Camden Rocks and Underworld Camden: take homophobic and transphobic Anti-Nowhere League off this years line-up

Camden Rocks festival is an amazing diverse festival for the whole community – Anti Nowhere League are listed top of this year’s bill and their clearly anti-LGBT event is against these principles.

In 2006 Anti Nowhere League released the song “The Way the World Tuned Gay” with very troubling lyrics which dehumanise members of the LGBT community.

The lyrics are listed below, these are clearly not ok and not acceptable in our diverse, beautiful, wonderful Camden Town. The band before have tried to dismiss this as a conversation between two animals, which for some reason they think would make it ok.

Let’s get this band taken off the line up on the 3rd of June show devotion to spreading music not love!

Trigger warning to some that might find it upsetting, there are some very distressing descriptions below of LGBT individuals

"Hello big boy, fancy a good time?
SHUT THE f*** UP!

Celebrities are out there having fun
For examples to us all everyone
George Michael knows the price you have to pay
For looking around the marriages in a day
Now we've got poofs, queers, f*****s, d***s and ladyboys and f****** transvestites
The day the world turned gay
Every-things acceptable today
It was the day the world turned gay
Well I must of missed something along the way

Gay pride are out there marching on the town
They're holding hands with their trousers down
They're sniffing eachothers a***s just like dogs
They're being dirty and hanging around in bogs

'cause we've got poofs, queers, f*****s, d***s and ladyboys and f****** transvestites
The day the world turned gay
Every thing's acceptable today
It was the day the world turned gay
Well I must of missed something along the way

h***phobia you say to me
Am I alone in a sick society?
Well there won’t be a generation here to come.
'cause were a dead generation were a dead man leading on

'cause we've got poofs, queers, f*****s, d***s and ladyboys and f****** transvestites
The day the world turned gay
Every thing's acceptable today
It was the day the world turned gay
Well I must of missed something along the way
It was the day the world turned gay
Every thing's acceptable today,
It was the day the world turned gay
Well I must of missed something along the way
Now we've got poofs, queers, f*****s, d***s and ladyboys and f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites
f****** transvestites"
