The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus say they were forced to take down their music video A Message From the Gay Community, where they joke about 'converting' children after receiving multiple death threats.
The satirical video plays on the homophobic notion that the gay community is looking to convert children and turns the idea on its head by suggesting they will convert them- into tolerant, open minded people.
The video, which was taken down, starts with a serious message from a chorus singer: 'As we celebrate Pride and progress we've made over these past years, there's still work to be done,' he says looking into the camera. 'So to those of you out there who are still working against equal rights, we have a message for you.'
