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.

Film recommendations: Queering your festive viewing

For so long, the Christmas cheesy film has been very straight, very white, usually revolving around 2.2 children. But finally things are changing and here are some ideas for some festive queer in your seasonal viewing. At last, same-sex stories are hitting the mainstream and this is something we need to celebrate. The Prom is an over-the-top song-and-dance cheese-a-thon (yup, cracking out the multi-hyphenates for this one!). A troupe of self-obsessed Broadway has-beens are looking for a new project to give them a social media boost – and decide to help teenager Emma. The school prom in her small town in Indiana has been cancelled by the PTA because they don’t want her to take her girlfriend – prom must be mixed sex couples, or it isn’t happening at all. It’s a musical extravaganza, fron...

Hungary bans same-sex couples from adopting children

Victor Orban and his homophobic group of MPs are continuing the ferocious and hatred campaign agains Hungarian LGBT+ population. The legislation put forward by Prime Minister Viktor Orban's right-wing government says only married couples can adopt, with some exceptions for single relatives of the child who is going to be adopted. Until this law, even if same-sex marriage is illegal in Hungary, adoption has been possible if one partner applied on their own. This is such a dark moment for human rights, and not only in Hungary. From now on single people will require special approval from the government to adopt. In the same amendment approved on Tuesday family is defined as "based on marriage and the parent-child relation. The mother is a woman, the father a man". B...

World AIDS Day – HIV treatments, vaccine and Covid-19 Pandemic.

Covid-19 Pandemic has put all HIV patients in serious risks and slowed down all testings and treatments. According to UNAIDS: The lockdowns and border closures imposed to stop COVID-19 are impacting both the production of antiretroviral medicines and their distribution, potentially leading to increases in their cost and to supply issues. Recent modelling has estimated that a six-month complete disruption in HIV treatment could lead to more than 500,000 additional deaths from AIDS-related illnesses. If services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV were similarly halted for six months, the estimated increases in new child HIV infections would be 162% in Malawi, 139% in Uganda, 106% in Zimbabwe and 83% in Mozambique. The global experience of tackling HIV can help info...
