A Filippino politician created very homophobic and shameful punishments for LGBT+ people not respecting isolation amid Covid-19 pandemic.

Filippino’s craziness.  A Filipino politician reportedly forced some LGBT+ people - which did not respect isolation during this Coronavirus pandemic - to kiss each other and perform “sexy dance” in front of minors and other people as a punishment. Christopher Bombing Punzalan - this is the name of this captain (elected chairman) of the Pandacaqui barangay (district) - he particularly targeted LGBT+ people (according to Rappler) and if he found them out of their houses “breaking the rules” of Covid-19 curfew, he started punishing them in very humiliating ways. He also posted a series of Facebook live videos of him confronting a group breaking the 8pm lockdown curfew, those videos have now been deleted. (Who know why?) He accused a group of gay people he found out in the streets to be o...

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...

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...

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...

Pride 2020: when coronavirus gets in the way

Pride is a parade of peaceful fight for the fundamental rights of the life of all LGBT+ people, and it is precisely life that must be protected. Therefore it would be truly irresponsible to continue without second thoughts, and allow the normal running of Pride Parades all over the world. We are facing a global pandemic, an epidemic that is destabilising us all and changing the way we live life everyday together with our future projects. How many of us have had to postpone graduation parties, birthdays, important celebrations and weddings? All is done for a greater good (sure), for the health of mankind and our loved ones but we admit it hurts. So here is that even Pride Parades 2020 around the world suffer from the effects of coronavirus (or Covid-19, whatever you want to call it)....

Covid-19: LGBT+ people still seeking for hook-ups on line despite restrictions. 

Two in ten LGBT+ people would still consider online dating/hook-ups amid this coronavirus pandemic. Researchers would explain it as a need to fill a loss of intimacy during this historic moment, more than anything else.  All this, of course, goes against the restrictive measures that almost the whole world is applying to stem Covid-19 pandemic that is redefining our daily lives and routines. Despite the increasing numbers of deaths due to coronavirus, it seems that about 28% of LGBT+ people would still consider casual hook-ups (mainly for sex) through famous dating apps; according to the Queer Voices Heard report published on Tuesday. Participants for the social business group who took part to this survey, described community's "real fear" of the viral epidemic, with 57% of responde...
