Bolivia’s first Same-Sex Union – history is being made!

After a two-year legal battle Guido and David could finally get their status recognised by the law. Could this first gay civil partnership lead to more LGBT+ rights in Bolivia? Guido Montano, one of the first two gay men to ever get into a same-sex union in the country, told WPR Linda Farthing: “The biggest change is a mental one. It may seem a vague idea in day-to-day life […] but I just immediately sensed that we have more rights.” When l in January both of them contracted COVID-19, without a legal recognition of their status, they were forced to look at the worst-case scenario where all they had built together so far was going to get lost, bu now, as Guido says, “with David really ill, the fact that we can now leave our pensions to each other and that we would have had no proble...

Homocaust – the Holocaust of Gay People – Part 1

Homosexuals are forgotten victims of the Nazi regime. How many gay people were condemned and interned in concentration camps is not known, both for the destruction of part of the archives and because many of them, like other categories of persecuted people by the Nazis, were captured by the Gestapo and made to disappear under the Nacht und Nabel decree issued by Hitler on 7th December 1941, with the aim of eliminating the "dangerous subjects for the Reich", without leaving a trace ... Let's ignore the fact that  already at the beginning of the 20th century, Germany was light years ahead in terms of social integration policies with the affirmed existence of various activist movements for homosexual rights, but this, unfortunately, was not enough to appease the ire of a schizophrenic house ...

Let’s Speak Rainbow

Creating awareness on LGBT+ terminology and acronyms. Because a more coloured world is possible. At The Gayly Mirror we have analysed for long times how people around us use the acronyms and the words that describe our community, the LGBT+ community. We have tried to understand what is their reception in heterosexual community and how many people really know and understand their meanings. This is why we have started this project called The Gayly Room - Let's Speak Rainbow. Let Raffa tell you what the project is all about and what we will be doing. https://www.facebook.com/100665071522546/videos/128419765787487   Be part of the project, get in touch with us!

Homemade Pride Parade

A display of how a Homemade Pride parade during Covid 19 brings together, not only the LGBTQ+ community, but Everyone! After writing a recent post about how essential it is to educate children and young people on the importance of LGBTQ issues and history; I decided to follow that up with a Pride Parade celebration during Lockdown of Covid 19. But how you ask? Since life in lockdown has affected us all, whether it be home schooling, missing friends and family or even missing our favourite restaurants the importance of trying to maintain some form of normality has never been more significant! This being said all of London’s Pride events were cancelled. Many of the events being transformed into part of a virtual online pride. Including online live drag shows, talent acts, Q&A sessi...

Russian Foreign Ministry formally told-off the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for flying a rainbow flag during pride month.

Homophobia at its purest state. “Yes, we passed a law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors. So what? Let people grow up, become adults and then decide their own destinies.” https://twitter.com/CanadaRussia/status/1276863053976436736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1276863053976436736%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinknews.co.uk%2F2020%2F07%2F29%2Frussia-pride-flag-foreign-ministry-complaint-uk-us-canadian-embassy-rainbow-lgbt%2F This is what Putin said during the Pride month when he got told that the US Embassy was flying a rainbow flag out of their windows, but now things got formal and the Russian Foreign Ministry sent an official complaint to the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for having flown a rainbow flag during the pride month.

Polish President accuses media of spreading fake news about him and his homophobia

The LGBT+ Polish population is in serious danger due to a rise of homophobia justified by Polish president. Andrzej Duda - president of Poland - continues his homophobic attacks and now he has accused the media of spreading “fake news” about his homophobic views. He has just signed a sweeping anti-LGBT pledge - as we reported here - and even with proofs of his words and acts against all LGBT+ rights in this country, he is denying his homophobic acts. Presidential Elections - June 28 - are just around the corner, and in a tweet he wrote in English he raged against media saying: “Yet again, as part of dirty political fight, my words are put out of context. I truly believe in diversity and equality. At the same time beliefs of any minority cannot be imposed on a majority under the false p...

Spongebob is officially Queer, and we love him even more.

Nickelodeon tweeted about Spongebob's sexuality on Saturday to celebrate Pride Month 2020. This tweet is what all Spongebob's lovers were waiting for (or maybe not?), but one this is for sure: our beloved sea-sponge is finally "ready" to be who he really is. https://twitter.com/Nickelodeon/status/1271795092391682048 This tweet shows pictures of Spongebob, alongside canonically queer characters Schwoz Schwartz from Henry Danger and Korra from Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off Legends of Korra. The tv broadcasters wrote: "Celebrating Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month." Do you remember when the show creator - Stephen Hillenburg - said that Spongebob was asexual? https://twitter.com/Mbfly6/status/1271877037578477569?ref_src=twsrc%5Etf...

Sophia Loren and Barilla’s inclusive pasta commercial

Barilla is being surprisingly more inclusive than ever. A few years ago Barilla - the famous Italian Pasta producer - ended up on all newspapers and blogs after their spokesperson admitted they would have never pictured an LGBT+ family in their commercials as the only kind of family they believed in was the one made of a man and a woman. Clearly their sales dropped to the minimum and they got involved into a media battle that pictured them - with obvious and unassailable reasons - like Homophobic and racist. Well.. a few months later, they had to publicly admit their "indelicate" behaviour and finally they started being so LGBT+ friendly, and LGBT+ allies that we still find it hard to believe today. Even their pasta is not the best you can find on shelves, their investments in te...
Polands gets even more homophobic with their president picturing the LGBT+ community as enemies.

Polands gets even more homophobic with their president picturing the LGBT+ community as enemies.

And some people still ask why we need Gay Prides every year. The air in Poland is getting barely breathable for the LGBT+ community that after the “LGBT+ free zones” are now being portrayed as enemies by Poland’s president which is looking for a second term of power in this month of elections. To make sure he gets a better social impact on the population, Andrzej Duda pleased those nazi-catholic groups of people (including religious representatives) by signing a “family-values-declaration”, where he promised to always “protect children from LGBT+ ideology” and prohibit the spread of such ideas involving public institutions that will have to make sure that nothing like this will ever happen. President Duda said: “This is a foreign ideology that we won’t allow to be introduced into our cou...
