I don’t endorse LGBTQ but that doesn’t mean I hate them, I don’t hate them. This is because that is just a fragment of who they are, not their entirety.

Am I homophobic if I don’t support LGBTQ?

I might not know exactly what you mean by support, but I’ll explain it like this.
Do you believe that gay people should have basic human rights as straight people do?
Yes or no? If you answered yes, then, you’re not homophobic. If you answered no, sorry, you’re homophobic. All that matters, is that you accept lgbt people. That’s all. Seriously, that’s it. That’s all it takes to not be homophobic.
So if you mean you are accepting and believe people have the right to love whoever they want, then that’s all that matters. You don’t need to go to pride or go to marches or even be queer at all. You can be heterosexual and/or cisgendered too. It doesn’t matter really. However what does matter is if you are against it, and disagree with it. In that case, yeah, that’s homophobic by definition. If you insult them, make offensive jokes, use slurs, and all that too. But as long as you don’t do anything that harms the LGBT community especially out of spite then you’re not homophobic.
Yes. If you don’t support something you are against it. And you can’t take neutral stand when it comes to lgbt rights, you either want us to be discriminated or not. So yes, if you don’t support lgbt it’s homophobic in my opinion. You don’t need to shout from the rooftops “I support gay marriage!” to be a supporter. It means that if someone gets bullied or harassed for their sexuality or gender identity, you won’t just stand there and let it happen, but you will maybe call the bullies out, because you are decent enough person.
