Owning homophobic comments: we should all learn from this brand!

By continuing to come back to this post and commenting will continue to push it out to other people. We know how instagram works, don’t we? Well, let me tell you that if we like a pic or comment it, IG will understand that this post is interesting and it will automatically be pushed to more users on that social network, who will like it themselves (or maybe write a comment to it) and other people will see that post in their feed too… and so on. This is basically what is happening to Playful Promises - a famous British Lingerie brand - that on Saturday, posted a pic of Jake DuPree - the famous “merman” from Los Angeles, wearing a dusty rose bra and suspender set.“ https://www.instagram.com/p/B_pWqOQBcnN/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_campaign=loadingù “Jake DuPree causing heart palp...

Italy – when homosexuality is compared to mental illness.

Wedding is NULL because his wife is Lesbian. This is what happens in Apulia, south of Italy, in a beautiful region reach of history, art, great food and breathtaking beaches, where religion is way too strong to sometimes stop homophobia, and where Anna - this is the name of this unlucky character - found her self to be considered guilty of “mental illness” simply because she understood and accepted she was Lesbian.  She has been married to Antonio for over 10 years, gave him three beautiful children and slowly, with an inner struggle, she finally understood and accepted her homosexuality, but for the Apulian Ecclesiastical Court and for the Cassation this has been recognized as a disabling reason for the marriage and therefore for its immediate dissolution through the Roman Rota. Th...

Turkmenistan: famous showman and his partner arrested for being gay.

Turkmenistan is not a place for LGBT+ people. We spoke about this side of the world in a recent post, but the news we keep on receiving from this area is not really encouraging. A very famous showman from Turkmenistan has been arrested last month, together with his partner and a dozen of other men around the country simply for being gay, even though police officers used the excuse of suspicion of homosexual activities. News and rumors of the gay showman’s arrest came out just a few days after we reported the horrible experience of the young man brutally beaten by police and forced to flee his country simply because he has HIV. Around the arrest of this famous Turkmen showman there is still too much unclarity, and a source told Radio Free Europe that the well-known actor had been ...

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...

Halle Berry shutting down homophobic followers shaming her son walking on heels

“Well it’s a he and he is having a ball.” Halle Berry recently posted a video of her son Maceo walking in their house wearing a pair of fantastic, fabulous, glamourous white high-heeled boots and the capture said: “Quarantine day 12” https://www.instagram.com/p/B-IG1bYDutd/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link The actress received loads of friendly, lovely and encouraging comments like the one below But idiocy is always around the corner and homophobic, hatred comments were posted too:  “Stop acting like this is normal,”  “Nothing fun about this,”  “Please don’t let this kid think this is alright,”  “My son never played in heels” “His mother is making him gay?” Gurlz, c’mon! Do you really think that people “become” gay? Still in 2020? We are born this way! Get ov...

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...
EU’s Ministers against Hungary’s ‘outrageous, shocking yet not surprising’ attack to Trans Community.

EU’s Ministers against Hungary’s ‘outrageous, shocking yet not surprising’ attack to Trans Community.

Masked homophobia is always homophobia, maybe the worst type. As reported in this article, the parliament in Hungary agreed to give full powers to Viktor Orbán (far-right-party) and granted him the rile to rule by decree with no need to consult other legislator.  Orbán’s deputy prime minister - Mr. Zslot Semjén - proposed a new bill that - if voted - would have replaced “gender” with “sex at birth” on any legal documents issued in Hungary.  But finally, EU MEPs have decided this was completely illegal and told off Hungarian Parliament calling this attempt an “intentional abuse” of power. “This attack on the trans community is outrageous and deliberate… This move does not only intentionally silence the trans community – it seeks to erase it and deny its existence” - Marc Angel, ME...

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...
