  1. Activists push for hate crime action

    South Africa: Rights activists rallied outside parliament on Monday to press ministers to address sexual violence, violence that targets lesbian and gay people and hate crimes.

    Luleki Sizwe, which means “guide a nation,” a small group of lesbian activists in the townships of Cape Town, also circulated an online petition calling on Justice Minister Jeff Radebe “to address ‘corrective rape,’ the increasingly common hate crime in which men rape lesbian women to ‘turn’ them straight or ‘cure’ them of their sexual orientation.”

    The most notorious cases include the 2008 death of Eudy Simelane, a star of South Africa’s women’s national football team. Ms Simelane, a lesbian, was gang raped, beaten and stabbed. Two men were jailed while two others were acquitted.

  2. We won’t kiss goodbye to LGBT awareness

    It is rumoured that David Cameron wants to see gay kisses banned on pre-watershed TV.

    A right wing Tory commission sees the Brookside soap’s breakthrough 1994 lesbian kiss as a cause for concern.

    The problems with the “Review of the Commercialisation and Sexualisation of Childhood” run deeper than just the homophobia of singling out this kiss.

    If some Tories have their way, young people will have their understanding and exploration of sexuality further restricted.

    Anti-abortion Tory MP Nadine Dorries wants to see the teaching of sex abstinence to stop Britain’s relatively high level of teenage pregnancy.

    But what young people need is sex education that engages with their burgeoning sexuality and teaches them how to have sex safely with contraception.

    Seeing gay people kissing on TV is a positive part of this.

    The Tories have more homophobic skeletons in their supposedly “pro-gay” closet.

    They have an ideological and economic interest in upholding “the family”. This is why they will seek to scapegoat anyone seen to not live their life in the right way.

    The people trying to turn the clock back cannot be allowed to succeed. It’s right to distrust Cameron on LGBT rights.

  3. World against homophobia

    EVENT: Millions of people around the world marked the seventh International Day Against Homophobia today.

    Homosexuality is still illegal in 77 countries around the world and in seven countries women, men and children are punished for their sexuality with death sentences.

    Ugandan gay rights campaigner David Kato, who sued a local newspaper which outed him as homosexual, was beaten to death in January.

    A recent attempt by the Ugandan parliament to reintroduce the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality” was dropped after widespread international outrage.

    TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said: “‘International Day Against Homophobia is an opportunity for unions to highlight the suffering of LGBT people all around the world and demand improvement – both in the workplace and in the wider community.”

  4. 150 celebrate gay pride

    ROMANIA: Around 150 people attended a colourful gay pride march in Bucharest on Saturday, calling for “sexual diversity and acceptance.”

    The march took place hours after a few dozen anti-gay activists held a “rally for normality” which condemned homosexuality.

    Homosexual activity was decriminalised in Romania in 2000, but gay activists say they still suffer from discrimination in the country.

    The march passed off peacefully, but the homophobic activists said they would continue to hold rallies as long as gay pride marches continued.
