Student gets bagpipe revenge on homophobic preacher

You know, there was once a time we thought that no-one deserved to hear the bagpipes - but we were wrong.

Brice Ehmig, a student at Florida Gulf Coast University, says she was repeatedly targeted by a regular on-campus preacher because of her gay relationship. Apparently the preacher would scream homophobic abuse at the couple because they were holding hands.

However, one day, Ehmig decided enough was enough and decided to stage a musical protest (the best kind).

To drown out the shouting preacher (who was wearing a ‘Jesus saves from hell’ t-shirt) she followed the preacher around playing the bagpipes so no-one could hear his hate-filled words. Watch the video here.

Ehmig said: “I have seen too much tragedy in the LGBTQ community to let a man in cargo pants tell me I am the embodiment of sin.

“I am a gay bagpiper and I’m proud.

“I decided since this is my last year at university that I should do things that make me feel brave. After years of dealing with the homophobic comments aimed at me by the preacher, I felt I needed to stand up against these false prophets spewing bigotry.

“I have fought hard for my rights.”

In regards to his reaction, she said: “He started going on more about homosexuality, and earned my relentless playing even more so. I then called over my girlfriend and gave her a big kiss right in front of the preacher and the group of people watching.”
