Crossed Genres Crossing Boundaries?

I'm avoiding making a moral judgement here till I hear all the facts from a friend, but there has been a bit of a kerfuffle about Flash Fiction Online hiding supposedly anti-LGBT bias in their submissions policy. Whilst this isn't overt on their submissions page, discussions with the editor have revealed pro-LGBT stories may be rejected outright, and some have interpreted this as meaning the venue has an anti-gay stance.

A comprehensive list of links in this debate can be found here. I will be returning to this issue shortly with more details when I have them.
