i failed to find any of "Make Capitalism Gay" homophobic. While the 
"gay" angle of the article is very underdeveloped, as i understand it 
Yoshie is implying that opposition parties increase their effectiveness 
by embracing LGBT civil rights. Thus the call for reformist left parties 
to "Make Capitalism Gay", i.e. to work to win the maximum protections 
for non-heterosexual and/or trans-people available under capitalism.

It's not the most useful strategy as far as i can see - i am unconvinced 
about how durable such gains are, considering that they often come at 
the cost of further co-opting the LGBT movement and marginalizing 
leftists and others within said movement - but i fail to see anything 
homophobic about it.

p.s. as previous posters seem to find it relevant, i may as well add 
that "i am writing as a queer man".
