Arrested after planting a rainbow flag at NYC Coronavirus Field Hospital.

The hospital is run by anti-LGBT preacher Franklin Graham. Last Tuesday the opening, but nothing mattered to public opinion, not even if this hospital is run by Graham’s anti-gay evangelist group Samaritan’s Purse, not even if all volunteers at the hospital must sign an anti-gay pledge agreeing that “gay people will go to hell” and that those healthcare givers will not cure any gay patient. https://twitter.com/revbillytalen/status/1247060933370757120 So Reverend Billy Talen tried to plant a rainbow LGBT+ flag in front of the hospital: “Today I tried to deliver a rainbow flag to the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital in Central Park. Franklin Graham and his Lord’s Army are here with their homophobic racist hustle. Help not hate,” he wrote in his post on twitter, after being arrest...

Covid-19 restrictions in Panama are getting worse especially for Trans people.

Crazy rules and where to find them. On 1st April Panama implemented new rules for the self-isolations due to Covid-19 pandemic: men and women are allowed to go out of their houses for a max of 2 continuous hours per day on specific and alternate days. To be sure all citizens respect these restrictions, police are checking the gender on the ID cards, this is seriously effecting trans people (pre-surgery) around the country. In Panama, trans people can only change their gender on their ID Documents if they can prove they have had gender-confirmation surgery. According to Human Rights Watch, on the first day of these new gendered-social-distancing and isolation rules, Bárbara Delgado a trans woman who still hasn’t completed her surgeries for gender-confirmation, was stopped by police o...

USA to reduce abstinence period for LGBT+ community for blood donations

When in need, it’s all good. The US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has reduced the abstinence period for men having gay sex from twelve to three months announcing a significant loosening in blood donations rules all over the country.  FDA statement said that it had “concluded that recent policies regarding certain donor eligibility criteria can be modified without compromising the safety of the bloody supply.”  The reason behind this decision is the pandemic caused by Covid-19. Yes, of course! Because it is so need right now. LGBT+ activists have welcomed this new decision, and Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD president and chief executive, said: “LGBT+ Americans can hold their heads up today and know that our voices will always triumph over discrimination. This is a victory for all ...
EU’s Ministers against Hungary’s ‘outrageous, shocking yet not surprising’ attack to Trans Community.

EU’s Ministers against Hungary’s ‘outrageous, shocking yet not surprising’ attack to Trans Community.

Masked homophobia is always homophobia, maybe the worst type. As reported in this article, the parliament in Hungary agreed to give full powers to Viktor Orbán (far-right-party) and granted him the rile to rule by decree with no need to consult other legislator.  Orbán’s deputy prime minister - Mr. Zslot Semjén - proposed a new bill that - if voted - would have replaced “gender” with “sex at birth” on any legal documents issued in Hungary.  But finally, EU MEPs have decided this was completely illegal and told off Hungarian Parliament calling this attempt an “intentional abuse” of power. “This attack on the trans community is outrageous and deliberate… This move does not only intentionally silence the trans community – it seeks to erase it and deny its existence” - Marc Angel, ME...

Uganda: 20 people arrested because they were gay, but police say it was Covid-19 prevention.

Uganda denies that 20 arrested people were targeted because they were gay. Fourteen gay men, two bisexual men and four transgender women were arrested on March 29th when police raided a refuge on the outskirts of the Ugandan capital Kampala. At least four of the 20 people arrested live with HIV and cannot have access to life-saving drugs, according to an activist. The police accused all 20 people of defying the rules of social distancing, but activists accuse the authorities of using the coronavirus pandemic excuse to target country's LGBT+ minorities. Patricia Kimera, a lawyer who is defending the group with the Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum, said that those people living with HIV are denied access to antiretroviral drugs and that all 20 of them run the risk of contrac...
Homophobe’s karma

Homophobe’s karma 

Karma is bitch, and we all know it. Ain’t we, girls? In this hard situation caused by Covid-19 pandemic, politicians are still looking fro votes and trying to show that they are “close to the population” as much as possible.  With this attitude, Vladimir Putin visited  Kommunarka, the main Covid-19 hospital in his country and, in front of the cameras, he had a nice chat with Doctor Denis Protsenko. They had quite a serious conversation where Doctor Protsenko spoke about what the hospital was doing for covid-19 patients, and in the end  the shook hands. All normal, you would say, I know. But as it is possible to see from the tv footage, none of them wore a mask or a protective kit against Covid-19.  On 31st March 2020, Doctor Protsenko announced he was diagnosed with COVID-19, a...

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

Hungary: Orban and his hold on Trans People’s rights.

The fight against Coronavirus is the used excuse, and Viktor Orban gets full powers to fight the invisible enemy, but apparently, in his plans there would be much more. In recent years, Hungary has repeatedly seen episodes of homophobia and racism because of the extremist drift fomented by President Orban and his party. Last Monday, however, the Hungarian parliament agreed to extend Orban's already strong powers by granting him the right to rule by decree indefinitely. What does it mean? Well. It means that the Hungarian president will be able to make decisions on his own without needing or having to consult other legislators. Orban is not alone in his insane battle against human rights: if on Monday morning his powers had already become untouchable, in the afternoon his deputy Zsol...

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...
