Viktor Orban wants gay people to ‘leave our children alone’ in a homophobic attack to lesbian Cinderella book.

The Far-Right and homophobic prime minister of Hungary decided that a fairy-tale story book was way too dangerous for Hungarian children. That he is such a homophobic character very linked to the same politics of his fellow-politician Mr. Putin, we never had any doubt about, and now he is attacking a story book for children that is trying to show the reality of our days and features LGBT+. The book itself is a sweetened reflection of a normal society, and its characters include people with disabilities, the elderly, the poor and people from minority ethnic backgrounds having the majority of the stories with no references to the LGBT+ world if not just some light references, the far-right party in Hungary, together with the help of the Prime Minister, have seized upon the handful that d...

Left-wing MPs troll Andrzej Duda the homophobe at his swearing creating a rainbow with their outfits.

The fight for LGBT+ Rights in Poland is something that must be carried on, and these MP’s from the left-wing have found a great way to troll the re-confirmed president to Poland. As anticipated, unfortunately Andrzej Duda was re-elected president of Poland last month:in  his campaign he lashed out at same-sex marriage and promised to ban same-sex couples from adopting children, comparing homosexuality to devil’s plans. With his re-election, LGBT+ rights (or whatever the LGBT+ communities in Poland reached) were smashed and completely cancelled. With the LGBT+ Polish population under attack, some activists still try to fight against this huge wave of homophobia, and some of the left-wing MPs decided to show their support to the LGBT+ community wearing colourful outfits and creating a rain...

Edinburgh asks Krakow to defend LGBT+ Rights

After Krakow joined the LGBT+ Free Zones, the Mayor of Edinburgh asked their counterpart in Poland to rethink their position and oppose to homophobia by defending LGBT+ rights. As reported by the Edinburgh Evening News, the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Frank Ross, has written to the Mayor of Krakow - Jacek Majchrowski -  and has asked him to clarify the Polish city’s opposition to homophobia and LGBT+ oppression. Since 1994 the two cities are twinned by a civic partnership agreement, and cooperate in many areas including culture, heritage, monument protection and education. This same partnership has been renewed last year, but after Krakow decided to join the “LGBT+ Free Zones”, the Mayor of Edinburgh is urging them to rethink their position. Twinned towns can obtain EU grants of up to €1...

GLAAD is calling for LGBT+ people and their allies to stop Trump re-election.

GLAAD’s president, Sarah Kate Ellis is asking the LGBT+ population to act ahead of the US Elections. Sarah, in her open-hearted op-ed for The Advocate said: “We have 100 days to impact the course of history and put LGBTQ+ equality and social justice back on the forward-moving path,” and then urged everyone to register to vote, to talk to 10 people they know about how the election impacted and could impact them as an LGBT+ person, and, crucially, to get out and vote on 3rd November. Already in 2018 mid-terms USA experienced a real “rainbow-wave” with the LGBT+ population electing public figures at all levels, and Sarah is positive that “we can do the same in the U.S. Senate” this year. GLAAD has been monitoring Trump presidency over these years and unfortunately him and his administratio...

Turkmenistan: young gay man brutally beaten because he was gay and HIV positive.

Turkmenistan is not a country for gay people, and we already knew it. Life in Turkmenistan is extremely hard and threatening for the LGBT+ community, as gay and bisexual men can face up to two years of prison and where society is still living with a strong anti-gay and anti-queer feeling. This, anyhow, does not justify the horrific experience lived by a 23-year-old gay man, beaten by police, simply because he was HIV positive.  Maskat - this is the name of this young boy - spoke anonymously to RadioFreeEurope and told his story to all listeners on line in that moment.  Last December, Maksat visited a local HIV centre trying to access antiretroviral therapy. Nurses at the centre asked him to take a blood test and  to return two days later, but when he went back to the centre, he foun...

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...

Vladimir Putin proposes to re-write Russian Constitution with new and very anti-LGBT+ rules.

“Marriage will be defined as the union of a man and a woman”. This and many other proposals are among those constitutional amendments that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin proposed and which are set to be put to a public vote. This is clearly a strategical move that Mr Putin wants to play to keep a hold on his power even when his presidential term would end in 2024. Amongst the proposals for the change of Russia’s Constitution we can also find a proclamation of Russians' faith in God and a very strong ban on giving away any Russian territory, and this would of course, strengthen Russia’s power on Crimea which legally belongs to Ukraine but that got annexed to Russia in 2014. These changes will continue Putin’s homophobic and anti-LGBT+ position, putting a ban on possible civil uni...
