A model of Williamson’s speech with Japanese subtitles has been retweeted over 130,000 occasions. It was posted in response to feedback made by Wataru Takeshita of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Get together (LDP), who was criticized this week for saying same-sex shouldn’t attend banquets on the Imperial Palace hosted by the emperor and empress as a result of “it would not match with Japanese traditions.” Takeshita later apologized after public outcry.
Following Takeshita’s feedback, Twitter consumer @bulldog_noh8 shared the subtitled video of Williamson’s “massive homosexual rainbow” speech from the ultimate studying of New Zealand’s same-sex marriage laws in 2013.
“When New Zealand handed a invoice legalizing same-sex marriage, that is what one uncle, the meeting member who voted for the invoice, mentioned. The speech was praised world wide even again then,” @bulldog_noh8 wrote. “Dedicating this to younger individuals who haven’t heard it but.”
