Happy Pride Month 2021

Happy Pride Month 2021 - we are to celebrate life, diversity, love and inclusion. This past couple of years have been very complicated for the whole world, for sure, but for the LGBT+ community, things have been even worst - sometimes. This pandemic forced people to live together in narrow spaces: too often LGBT+ people had to live in hostile environments and their lives, their mental health were put in serious risk. June is the month when we celebrate Pride globally: we also celebrate life, inclusion, we scream out loud our right to exist, to live and love, to have a decent life and get our rights recognised. June is generally the month when we start marching our Pride Parades, or at least we used to, before Covid-19 messed up with our lives.  I would therefore love to begin this mon...

Bosnian Imam thanks Allah for Coronavirus pandemic that cancelled Pride Parade in Sarajevo.

Extremism, in every single aspect of life, is way too dangerous and only brings hate. We have been notified with a hateful post on facebook that we report here below: https://www.facebook.com/muhamed.velic.549/posts/10223731831269624 The author is Muhaned Velic, famous Bosnian Imam that threw several shades of hate on the LGBT+ community of the country and praised his God for bringing Coronavirus and subsequently the cancellation of various social events, among which the Pride Parade in Sarajevo. He wrote: "The media inform us that the homosexual parade in Sarajevo has been postponed due to the coronavirus. ... In every misfortune and tragedy - there is also a grain of happiness, goodness and beauty. Thank Allah for everything. ... May dear Allah grant that the crown and the...

Russian Foreign Ministry formally told-off the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for flying a rainbow flag during pride month.

Homophobia at its purest state. “Yes, we passed a law banning the propaganda of homosexuality among minors. So what? Let people grow up, become adults and then decide their own destinies.” https://twitter.com/CanadaRussia/status/1276863053976436736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1276863053976436736%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.pinknews.co.uk%2F2020%2F07%2F29%2Frussia-pride-flag-foreign-ministry-complaint-uk-us-canadian-embassy-rainbow-lgbt%2F This is what Putin said during the Pride month when he got told that the US Embassy was flying a rainbow flag out of their windows, but now things got formal and the Russian Foreign Ministry sent an official complaint to the UK, US and Canadian Embassies for having flown a rainbow flag during the pride month.

Spongebob is officially Queer, and we love him even more.

Nickelodeon tweeted about Spongebob's sexuality on Saturday to celebrate Pride Month 2020. This tweet is what all Spongebob's lovers were waiting for (or maybe not?), but one this is for sure: our beloved sea-sponge is finally "ready" to be who he really is. https://twitter.com/Nickelodeon/status/1271795092391682048 This tweet shows pictures of Spongebob, alongside canonically queer characters Schwoz Schwartz from Henry Danger and Korra from Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off Legends of Korra. The tv broadcasters wrote: "Celebrating Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month." Do you remember when the show creator - Stephen Hillenburg - said that Spongebob was asexual? https://twitter.com/Mbfly6/status/1271877037578477569?ref_src=twsrc%5Etf...

Polands gets even more homophobic with their president picturing the LGBT+ community as enemies.

And some people still ask why we need Gay Prides every year. The air in Poland is getting barely breathable for the LGBT+ community that after the “LGBT+ free zones” are now being portrayed as enemies by Poland’s president which is looking for a second term of power in this month of elections. To make sure he gets a better social impact on the population, Andrzej Duda pleased those nazi-catholic groups of people (including religious representatives) by signing a “family-values-declaration”, where he promised to always “protect children from LGBT+ ideology” and prohibit the spread of such ideas involving public institutions that will have to make sure that nothing like this will ever happen. President Duda said: “This is a foreign ideology that we won’t allow to be introduced into our cou...

50Cent and his homophobic posts on Instagram

Such a repeater. Yes, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) thinks that trolling Young Buck (since last year, apparently) is fun, but what is more fun is to make jokes on LGBT+ people.  Really sweetie? But how did it start?  Last year around this time he started trolling Young Buck on line with this post: ““Young Buck is almost ready to drop his album. He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual [sic] will confuse some of his core audience but with the support of the LGBT+ he should be fine.” A big homophobic offense for the LGBT+ Community - especially for trans people - and a free unneeded disgusting joke toward a colleague. Already in 2015 he wrote: “If you are a man and your [sic] over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill yourself damn ...

San Francisco had to cancel their Historic 50th Anniversary Pride because of Covid-19

It was a hard but due decision. During this pandemic caused by Covid-19 virus, unfortunately California has reported 23,338 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 758 deaths so far, and on Tuesday California’s governor Gavin Newsom said said  that until the moment a vaccine is ready and given to population, no gatherings of over 100 people will be permitted. As we have reported here, unfortunately more than 100 Pride events around the world have been either postponed or cancelled, and San Francisco Pride organisers said it will join a constellation of Prides worldwide in a “Virtual Global Pride” on 27th June. Carolyn Wysinger, president of the Pride Board of Directors, said organisers had to avoid the Pride to become a sort of “ground zero” for Covid-19 spreading throughout the LGBT+ co...

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 and Gay Prides 2020 – what future?

The health of every citizen and the LGBT+ people is something that must stand above all. The Covid-19 pandemic has required and is demanding to all of great efforts and sacrifices - which are minimal if we compare them to the effort and sacrifice of the medical staff fighting to the limit of their strength against this virus - and for this, it is  also necessary to make painful decisions for a greater good. London Pride 2020 postponed The organizers announced the decision in a statement released today March 23rd stating that the health and safety of the LGBT+ community is their "top priority". The event, which was to take place on June 27th, 2020, and which generally attracts more than one million people in the capital of Great Britain, has therefore been postponed to a date to be co...
