It seems our fears have come to fruition as Indonesia is gearing up to officially make homosexuality illegal. We’ve been watching the country’s increased hostility towards LGBTQ people in the past two years or so. To go along with that increase in social intolerance towards LGBTQ people, the government has become exceedingly volatile when it came to the treatment of its citizens. Now, it seems the politicians are preparing to make homosexuality officially illegal, so that they don’t have to use...
Delhi-Pride

November 12th marked the 10th Annual New Delhi Pride, where members of the LGBTQIA community, allies and activists came together to show that love is love. In India, gay sex is still illegal punishable with up to 10 years in prison. But that didn't stop the hundreds who marched regardless of the danger of persecution. Reigning RuPaul's Drag Race All-Star champion Alaska Thunderfuck was part of the New Delhi Pride festivities, appearing at the popular Kitty Su nightclub. https://www.instagram.com/p/BbaFk-VDUTl/ Check out these videos...

It’s more than you’d expect… While LGBT+ people have won some significant rights in recent years, there’s still much to be done – especially if you take Gallup’s polling data into consideration. The company have been asking American citizens if they think same-sex relations between two consenting adults should be legal or not be legal since the 1970s. The Washington Post recently unearthed the data and found that a fifth of Americans (23%) still believe gay relations should be illegal. As you can...

Roy Moore, the disgraced former judge and current frontrunner in a US Senate election, has said that “homosexual conduct should be illegal.” The conservative Christian politician also compared homosexuality with bestiality. Moore, who is running for the US Senate seat vacated by Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions, made the comments during a 2005 interview, according to CNN. Last week, it was revealed that he has appeared multiple times on a radio show hosted by pastor Kevin Swanson, who is known for...
Absolut-Pride

The vodka brand has created a striking poster campaign called Kiss With Pride on the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. Absolut wanted to highlight the fact that it is still illegal to engage in same-sex activity in 72 countries worldwide as part of its campaign for a more inclusive and open world. The posters feature individuals from some of those 72 countries sharing a kiss and expressing their freedom. The shots were photographed by Sam Bradley...

While the UK reflects on 50 years since the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, it’s clear we’ve still got a long way to go. Yesterday (27 July) marked 50 years since the introduction of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, and therefore 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales. While it may be a shock to many that decriminalisation in England and Wales only came into action, in the grand scheme of things, an incredibly short time ago,...

Never has discrimination looked so beautiful. Sometimes a fashion statement says so much more than "I'm fierce." When Dutch designers Mattijs van Bergen and Oeri van Woezik joined forces for EuroPride, they knew they wanted to contribute something that spoke volumes. As visual artists, it was important for that message to be conveyed through the power of a single image. Or in this case, a single dress. The "Rainbow Dress" is 52-feet long, with a skirt made up of the flags from the...
