Turkmenistan: famous showman and his partner arrested for being gay.

Turkmenistan is not a place for LGBT+ people. We spoke about this side of the world in a recent post, but the news we keep on receiving from this area is not really encouraging. A very famous showman from Turkmenistan has been arrested last month, together with his partner and a dozen of other men around the country simply for being gay, even though police officers used the excuse of suspicion of homosexual activities. News and rumors of the gay showman’s arrest came out just a few days after we reported the horrible experience of the young man brutally beaten by police and forced to flee his country simply because he has HIV. Around the arrest of this famous Turkmen showman there is still too much unclarity, and a source told Radio Free Europe that the well-known actor had been ...

San Francisco had to cancel their Historic 50th Anniversary Pride because of Covid-19

It was a hard but due decision. During this pandemic caused by Covid-19 virus, unfortunately California has reported 23,338 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 758 deaths so far, and on Tuesday California’s governor Gavin Newsom said said  that until the moment a vaccine is ready and given to population, no gatherings of over 100 people will be permitted. As we have reported here, unfortunately more than 100 Pride events around the world have been either postponed or cancelled, and San Francisco Pride organisers said it will join a constellation of Prides worldwide in a “Virtual Global Pride” on 27th June. Carolyn Wysinger, president of the Pride Board of Directors, said organisers had to avoid the Pride to become a sort of “ground zero” for Covid-19 spreading throughout the LGBT+ co...

Global Pride: an online Pride to safely celebrate LGBT+ rights during COVID-19 pandemic.

Nothing can stop a rainbow. EPOA has announced that a Global Pride Event will take place on line on 27th June 2020 in response to all those Pride events which had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 Pandemic and for the safety and health of all participants. There is a lot to be seen and celebrated during this Global Pride Event, in fact  InterPride and the EPOA are working together with national organisations around the world (including USA, Canada, South Africa, Asia, Oceania and Latina America) to be able to include as many associations as possible and bring LGBT+ communities from all around the world to celebrate together this even. According to Steve Taylor, “Global Pride will use online platforms to deliver a Pride in which everyone can participate, wherever they are in th...

Singapore’s High Court confirms validity of Section 377A: a ban dated back to colonial-era.

Sexual activity between men has been illegal in Singapore since the British imposed Section 377A in the 30's during the colonial era. Singapore's High Court judges dismissed a constitutional battle against Section 377A of the country's penal code that prohibits same-sex intimacy (specifically between men), as Human Dignity Trust announced today, 30th March 2020. This is a real blow for all local LGBT + activists. Although these rules are rarely applied, for men who commit a "serious offense" with another man or try to get gay sex, there is a serious risk of being jailed for up to two years. While sexual activity between women is technically "legal", activists argue that the law represses the entire LGBT + community as a whole. (From left) Mr Bryan Choong Chee Hong, Mr Johnso...

Pride 2020: when coronavirus gets in the way

Pride is a parade of peaceful fight for the fundamental rights of the life of all LGBT+ people, and it is precisely life that must be protected. Therefore it would be truly irresponsible to continue without second thoughts, and allow the normal running of Pride Parades all over the world. We are facing a global pandemic, an epidemic that is destabilising us all and changing the way we live life everyday together with our future projects. How many of us have had to postpone graduation parties, birthdays, important celebrations and weddings? All is done for a greater good (sure), for the health of mankind and our loved ones but we admit it hurts. So here is that even Pride Parades 2020 around the world suffer from the effects of coronavirus (or Covid-19, whatever you want to call it)....

Covid-19 and Gay Prides 2020 – what future?

The health of every citizen and the LGBT+ people is something that must stand above all. The Covid-19 pandemic has required and is demanding to all of great efforts and sacrifices - which are minimal if we compare them to the effort and sacrifice of the medical staff fighting to the limit of their strength against this virus - and for this, it is  also necessary to make painful decisions for a greater good. London Pride 2020 postponed The organizers announced the decision in a statement released today March 23rd stating that the health and safety of the LGBT+ community is their "top priority". The event, which was to take place on June 27th, 2020, and which generally attracts more than one million people in the capital of Great Britain, has therefore been postponed to a date to be co...
