Spanish Nazi party tries to show how scary gays are, accidentally creates adorable queer mascot

Spain elected a new parliament a few days ago and while the socialists won by a big margin there is also reason for concern: Vox, a (very) far-right party made it into the parliament for the first time with more than 10% of the vote, gaining 24 of the 350 seats.

Among many other shitty opinions Vox is, of course, extremely anti-queer. In an attempt to rally their supporters to “defend Spain” they posted a hastily put-together image showing a Lord of the Rings character representing Spain in the fight against evil.

None of these bogeymen were a surprise but the way they decided to represent queer people stood out because whichever intern was tasked with finding a symbol to show how scary The Gays™ are did a terrible job and picked the most adorable little ghost (probably from this artist).

Queer folks in Spain promptly adopted and reclaimed the lil spook. They named him Gaysper (personally I would have voted for Rainboo) and it didn’t take long until the memes started flooding social media. He even got his own Twitter account.

Gaysper: They’re afraid of me because I’m a ghost. Right, mom?
Mom-sper: No, my darling.
Mom-sper: They’re afraid of you because you’re free.
Gaysper: ✨

    1. Post
    2. If you know enough Spanish to do it, might try looking on merchants with a .bcn Web address…. Since it originated in Spain and doesn’t look to have moved much beyond there yet, that’s prolly your best bet.

      Might help to do an advanced search in Google that’s restricted to Spanish language sites too…
