National Coming Out Day 2021 – Love and embrace your-real-self!

National Coming Out Day 2021 marks again an important milestone for the LGBT+ Community from all around the world, and on this day, we really should be taking a moment for ourselves and understand why Coming Out is so important for us and our wellbeing.  National Coming Out Day was created by Robert Eichberg and Jean O’Leary to inspire future generations of LGBT+ people to express themselves and their identity publicly, with no fears and proudly. Are there benefits from Coming Out? Yes, there are. And we shall not underestimate their importance. First of all we need to understand that coming out can have positive mental health benefits on us: too many LGBT+ people feel pressure every day when trying to hide part of themselves, and keeping their identities a secret can feed low se...

Latest Music Releases – “MAMMAMIA” by Måneskin and much more!

Lately, a set of new fresh songs by Eurovision artists dropped. Now, without further ado, check out below the most recent new releases. Måneskin - "MAMMAMIA" The winners of Eurovision 2021 are back with a massive heat filled up with sensuality and sexual tension. Damiano's smoky voice portrays all the confidence of a real "Italiano". The lyrics go about crossing boundaries, being yourself and "feeling sexy and freee..." Amir - "Rétine" Amir brings back the French classic ballad sounds. Stripped-back from the beginning, it builds up to something modern, avant-garde and even electronic-inspired in the second half of the song. The song was written by Amir himself together with producers Nazim Khaled and Stav Beger. Little Big – "Welcome To The Internet" ...

Xavier Bettle – Luxembourg PM – publicly attacks Orban’s anti-LGBT+ bill.

Xavier Bettle is openly gay and married to his husband, with which he committed to keep on fighting for LGBT+ rights around the world. As we said here, yesterday Orban and Hungary received an open letter where the EU leaders jointly expressed their solidarity with the LGBT+ community and continued dedication to “fighting against discrimination”. You can see a copy of the letter here below:   “Respect and tolerance are at the core of the European project […] We are committed to carry on with this effort, making sure that future European generations grow up in an atmosphere of equality and respect.” And of course this is what Xavier Bettle wants to pursue for our present and future. Speaking to reporters he said: “Being gay is not a choice. […] You know, I did not just wak...

Carl Nassib comes out as Gay

Carl Nassib is the first NFL player to publicly come out as gay making history. Carl Nassib, this hot dude in the video below, came out as gay in an Instagram video he shared last Monday afternoon, becoming the first active gay player in National Football League history to come out while signed to a team. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQZXu_8nyy_/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link His message is clear, direct and open-hearted: "I’m at my house in West Chester, Pennsylvania. I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but finally feel comfortable getting it off my chest. I really have the best life, the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for. I’m a pretty private person so I hope you guys know that I’m not doing this for a...

Happy Pride Month 2021

Happy Pride Month 2021 - we are to celebrate life, diversity, love and inclusion. This past couple of years have been very complicated for the whole world, for sure, but for the LGBT+ community, things have been even worst - sometimes. This pandemic forced people to live together in narrow spaces: too often LGBT+ people had to live in hostile environments and their lives, their mental health were put in serious risk. June is the month when we celebrate Pride globally: we also celebrate life, inclusion, we scream out loud our right to exist, to live and love, to have a decent life and get our rights recognised. June is generally the month when we start marching our Pride Parades, or at least we used to, before Covid-19 messed up with our lives.  I would therefore love to begin this mon...

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!
