Gay Guerrillas Fight ISIS on the Battlefield With a Very Blunt Message for the Terrorists

Social media is blowing up over a gay guerrilla movement that is joining the fight against ISIS.

They’re called the Queer Insurrection and Liberation Army (TQILA – pronounced ‘tequila’). One of their images says, ‘these faggots kill fascists’. This is hardly a title this website could get away with on Facebook, because it says faggots, kill, and fascists in it. But this is a message we can support.

Right now Stockholm Pride march is going on and the group recently sent them a message, which read: ‘Att få älska vem man vill är värt kampen! Kärlek från Raqqa till Pride Stockholm.’

This translates to: ‘Getting to love whoever you want is worth the fight! Love from Raqqa to Pride Stockholm.’

The Stockholm Pride supporters sent back some love and showed support for the militia group.

According to the Metro: TQILA has made themselves known in the fight against Isis along with the International Revolutionary People’s Guerilla Forces (IRPGF).

The fierce looking guerrillas are known for their moto: ‘These faggots kill fascists’.

The group is said to have arisen as a reaction to the Islamic State’s famously brutal anti-gay beliefs.

Isis have targeted gay people both in the so-called Islamic state and abroad.

In 2016 a video emerged of Isis fighters throwing a gay man to his death from the top of a building, while the terror group claimed responsibility for the mass shooting in Pulse, a gay club in Orlando, in which 49 people died.

IRPGF released a memo outlining the reasons behind the formation of TQUILA.

They state in the document: ‘The Images of gay men being thrown off roofs and stoned to death by Daesh was something we could not idly watch.’

They added that ‘queerphobia, homphobia and transphobia are not inherent to Islam or any other religion’.

Hard to believe since you don’t see any Christians or Jews throwing gay people off buildings, etc.

The organization is tight lipped on their member numbers, for security concerns, and are based in Raqqa, Syria.
