Low-budget, “gay”won Best Picture at the Academy Awards.

Moonlight, a low-budget, “gay” coming-of-age movie about a poor, bullied, black boy with a drug-addicted mother, surprisingly won Best Picture at the Academy Awards on Sunday night, giving homosexual activists a propaganda victory as well.
In addition to winning Best Picture, after a mistake in which La La Land was first announced as the winner, Moonlight won for Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali) and Best Writing Adapted Screenplay (Tarell Alvin McCraney and Barry Jenkins).
In accepting the award, both Jenkins and McCraney got political: “All you people who feel like there’s no mirror for you, the Academy has your back, the ACLU has your back, we have your back, and for the next four years, we will not forget you,” Jenkins said, in what Variety described as his addressing the alleged “rollback of civil rights by the Trump administration.”
