200 people gathered to participate in Soweto Pride in South Africa.

Going along with that goal, the theme of this year’s march was “Reclaiming Our Right To Organize.” The reason for that theme was not only because of the increase in crimes targeting gay...

Priest-Gay-Grandmother

Religion was once described as a “the cluster of imperatives and beliefs which orient a life in motion,” so in the case of one Indiana church, that cluster of imperatives is that it is vitally important that anyone who ever went to gay pride should be prevented from singing. The situation is this: the Hakes family has belonged to the St. Mary’s of the Assumption Catholic (of course) Church in Indiana for many generations. When an elderly member of the family died, one of the...
INDIA-GAY-RIGHTS

Hundreds of LGBT activists marched in the Pride parade in New Delhi today to draw attention to discrimination against India’s LGBT community. Marchers called for a repeal of the law that criminalises homosexual acts. The penal code which criminalises acts was overturned in 2009, but four years later the move was overturned who decided repealing the section which dictates the law should be up to parliament, not judiciary. https://www.instagram.com/p/BNT6O8bDMa9/ Gay sex is punishable by up to 10 years in prison in India.
