A 7-year-old girl, identified as Zea stood up to a homophobic preacher at a festival this weekend in Columbus, Ohio. The festival took place the day after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality.
Comfest is a family-friendly, free, community music festival, not a parade or a march, however, the pastor thought it was appropriate to yell out anti-equality hate speech and Zea decided to confront him.
A photo of the exchange has also been turned into a t-shirt with proceeds benefiting Zea and an LGBT non-profit of her parents choosing.
Zea’s father happened to catch the encounter on video:
