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!

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...

Chopin’s homosexuality hidden for many years.

Frédéric Chopin was gay, but his homosexuality has been longly hidden or passed over in silence: both when he was alive and after his death by his biographers.  This is what the journalist and musician Moritz Weber demonstrates on the basis of the private letters of the Polish composer, in a two-hour radio investigation aired on the Swiss public broadcaster SRF titled "Chopin's men".  It would not be the first time that the gay or bisexual orientation of some artists, writers and historical figures has been omitted: it started with Sappho, especially if these artists lived in times when homosexuality was considered a perversion or a disease.  Weber explains: “Chopin deliberately separated his inner feelings from what he showed on the outside. He paid close attention to the way he ap...

UK: Transgender teenager takes legal action over the years-long wait faced by young people requesting appointments with NHS specialists

The UK is not facing easy times due to the Pandemic caused by Coronavirus, the Brexit which is approaching in less than 40 days and  the NHS which is fighting not to collapse under the hit of Covid-19 cases.  There is one thing, though, that is not depending on the obove situation, and for which the NHS will have to provide some explanations: their waiting times both for transgender adults and children that have waiting times of years!  NHS waiting time is 18 weeks, but some patients have to wait over 193 weeks only to get to their initial appointment. Things are harder for teen-trans, as there is only one clinic for young people seeking transition in the entire country of her Majesty Elizabeth II. Reece, a 14-year-old-boy, has started a legal action with the support of legal activi...

Pope Francis and Gay Civil Partnerships: the following day.

"Gay people have the right to a family and to a normal citizenship". Yesterday Pope Francis gave hopes to all those LGBT+ people in Italy who are still waiting on a proper law that would protect them and give them dignity in a country that has still got a lot to do in terms of equal rights. Toda - instead - after all the astonishment that Pope Francis’ words caused both to those conservative bigots and to the LGBT+ population around the world, here we have a little stop to all that joy: "Be careful not to reach wider consequences than the premises. Francis simply says that if two people, even of the same sex, decide to live together, in a form of stable coexistence, they have the right to ensure that their choices are protected. But does not in any way open to marriage between h...
