ISKCON and "the false gurus" (viz homophobia)

So, my view of ISKCON has somewhat been soured by this website:

[link removed]

Yes, its good to expose false gurus, but why does this site speak of almost everyone as "gay" and posting pictures of swamis hugging with captions like "kissy kissy". This is blatent homophobia and childish bullying. Why is the website obsessed with this and surely ISKCON doesnt make fun of or speak ill of someones sexuality?

Is this website reliable? Some of the "bogus" gurus seem to be practicing today and are well-loved...

Prabhupada's words have to be

Prabhupada's words have to be seen as good as god.
He said this about homosexuals, which is ironic as many devotees who Prabhupada first initiated were homosexuals. Many gurus were caught with other men.
We hear from Srila Prabhupada that generally speaking even animals do not have homosexuality in their species!
Prabhupada: Now they are indulging homosex, how they will become strong? And the students, they are discussing, that means they are having. The stamina is being lost. Now what they have created, it will be lost.
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 9th May 1975. Morning Walk. Perth, Australia)
The sense gratification, homosex, they are supporting. Just see. Just see. At least, in animal society there is no homosex. They have created homosex, and that is being passed by the priest, the religious heads. You know that?
(A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 25th August 1971. Room Conversation. London, England.)
