Alt-right 4chan users are planning a cyber attack to the LGBT+ community during Pride Month.

This group of homophobes is plotting to hijack LGBT+ all the online events for the Pride Month starting on June 1 by clogging social media with poisonous homophobia and boycotting supportive brands. This is something they are already organising since early May, according to an archived version  of what they have called “Operation Pridefall”. Their plan is to create a multitude of fake accounts on social medias and start posting and share ANTI-LGBT+ contents and to also target those brands that will have digital campaigns linked to the Pride Month. Targeted companies could include Starbucks, Amazon, Coca Cola, several British and American media outlets, Levis, Adidas, or still, some local law enforcement departments. Some members of Alt-Right 4chan would supposedly already have supplied ...

First lesbian couple to marry in Costa Rica

Such an emotional ceremony which was also broadcast live on National TV. Costa Rica recently made equal marriage legal and just a few minutes after midnight Daritza Araya and Alexandra Castillo celebrated their marriage and love in San Isidro de Heredia. Sí Acepto Campaing director Gia Miranda said: “As the country and the world face the difficult situation of the pandemic, this historic milestone becomes even more relevant. It’s a message of a better future for thousands of couples and families who will receive the legal recognition they deserve.” Standing before a marriage officiant in a face mask given the hard situation that South and Central Americas are still facing with Coronavirus, they each exchanged their vows: “With this ring I join you in marriage. This ring symbolises ...

IDAHOT 2020 – This is why we must not be ashamed of who we are.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia 2020.  Let's start with one fact: ours is a male-dominated, patriarchal, and obsessively religious society. This implies that if you are not male, heterosexual, and religious, somehow, you do not fit in this normality. What if you don’t fit in then? Well, then a part of our society feels authorized to be offensive and violent with you. Like if they were Gods able to decide what’s the right kind of love. Their targets to hit are always minorities. It is easy to blame those who are numerically lower or physically less strong. Technically, women would not be a minority, but as women, they are seen as inferior by some men. According to the prevailing patriarchal male chauvinism, women are inferior beings who have very specific ...

Being Raped? I thought it was what normally “happened to gay men”.

Stonewall co-founder Michael Cashman candidly revealed that he had been raped so regularly while growing up that he thought it was just "what normally happened to gays". Speaking to The Guardian, Michael opened up on how his childhood in East London and his theatrical career both suffered from the trauma of continuing sexual violence. Cashman - who is now 69 - described how, at the age of 12, performing in "Oliver!", He was approached by a cast member who sexually took advantage of the young actor. "I wanted my mother to rescue me," Cashman said, but this has only been one of a long series of abuses that the former Eastenders star has endured in his life so far. The first abuse at 8 years of age. Sexual abuse marked his youth: at eight years of age Michael was sexually assaulted by a ...

50Cent and his homophobic posts on Instagram

Such a repeater. Yes, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) thinks that trolling Young Buck (since last year, apparently) is fun, but what is more fun is to make jokes on LGBT+ people.  Really sweetie? But how did it start?  Last year around this time he started trolling Young Buck on line with this post: ““Young Buck is almost ready to drop his album. He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual [sic] will confuse some of his core audience but with the support of the LGBT+ he should be fine.” A big homophobic offense for the LGBT+ Community - especially for trans people - and a free unneeded disgusting joke toward a colleague. Already in 2015 he wrote: “If you are a man and your [sic] over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill yourself damn ...

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...
