Speaking With a Gay Man On Tv Show, Sentenced to Prison

TV presenter Mohammed el-Gaiti in Egypt was tried and sentenced to 1 year in prison for interviewing a gay man on his show last year.

A Giza court also fined El Gaiti, who he found guilty of “promoting homosexuality” on his LTC television channel, and sentenced him to $ 167 for good work.

In the program, gays with dull faces learned that they lived like prostitutes.

Homosexuality is not explicitly defined as a crime in Egyptian law, but the authorities are putting more and more pressure on LGBTI people based on the laws of “common morals”.

Individuals suspected of consensual homosexual relationships are often detained and charged with “immorality” or “insult to religion”.

El Gaiti created a program that led to his conviction in August 2018, and he was tried by the complaint of Samir Sabri, a lawyer known to have filed hundreds of lawsuits against them, accusing famous names of immorality.

The guest of the television presenter, who has repeatedly expressed his anti-homosexual opinions, says in the program on the case that he “regrets” his sexual orientation and explains the difficulties of his life as a sex worker.

The Supreme Council for Media Publishing, which controlled the media in Egypt after the broadcast, issued a two-week ban on the channel for “violating professional rules”.

Will follow for 1 year

Samir Sabri, a lawyer, accused presenter El Gaiti of “revealing that money can be made through homosexuality,” the state-controlled newspaper El Ahram said in a statement.

In addition to imprisonment and fines, the court decided that Gheity would be monitored for one year after his release.

Gheity can appeal this decision and be released on bail until his appeal is completed.

Media monitoring in Egypt banned homosexuals from appearing in the media after the rainbow flag was unveiled at a concert in Cairo in 2017.

This was followed by a period of repression, when dozens of people were arrested, putting human rights organizations on their feet.

The authorities regard the 1961 Prostitution Act as a basis for reprisals.

In this law, the crime described as “immoral immorality” is used against persons suspected of having consented to homosexual relations.

Vatican is Biggest Gay Community

Frederic Marty, a French journalist and sociologist, is 80% a senior pastor working for the Catholic spiritual leader, Pope Francis. He suggested that the Vatican is the largest gay community in the world.
Martel presented his book at a press conference in Rome and said that the church was homophobic: “When I worked on this book, I realized that the most homophobic were originally gay. Homophobic Vatican; “LGBT people are against individuals, same-sex marriage, adoption of homosexuals, but there is a double life full of homosexuals.” On the other hand, cases of child abuse that shocked the Catholic Church were dealt with at an emergency summit held yesterday in the Vatican at the invitation of Pope Francis.

Brazil Court Puts Homophobia and Transphobia in Crime

The Brazilian Constitutional Court has turned homophobia and transphobia into a crime. A question was raised in February, but the process could not be completed due to procedures. So far, the process is complete.

The Brazilian Supreme Court has decided to punish crimes of sexual orientation and gender by six votes to five in accordance with the applicable law on racism. According to the law, people who had sexism with a sexual orientation in Brazil receive three years in prison and fines.

Supreme Court Vice President Louis Fuchs said homophobic violence was widespread due to the game he played. “Homophobic crimes are just as disturbing as physical violence,” he said.

Activists say the solution, which is the result of 20 years of effort, will provide real protection for the LGBT + “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender +” community, which is constantly being attacked.

At least 142 LGBT killings were committed in Brazil in 2019

“We cannot turn a blind eye to those who are raped and killed every day,” said David Miranda, one of Brazil’s most famous politicians. Mayu George, director of GBT’s Mothers for Diversity, said:

“If a person is threatened only by his existence, there can only be resistance, no existence.”

According to a recently published study, in 2019 alone, 141 Brazilian LGBT people died as a result of a murder. Gay Group of Bahia, Brazil’s largest LGBT organization, has announced that LGBT people are killed in Brazil every 25 hours.

President Bolsonaro is known for his homophilic speeches.

Jair Bolsonaro, who was elected president on January 1, 2019, is known for his homophonic rhetoric. Before becoming president, Bolsonaro clearly expressed his position on the equality of married and homosexual couples in the hate language that he used. Bolsonaro told reporters that his country would not allow him to become a “paradise for gay tourism.”

Brazil has had equality in marriage since 2013, but LGBT people are worried about Bolsonaro’s rhetoric.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who was unable to form the government after the last general election, sacked Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked three days ago.

Investigations are underway in Israel against Netanyahu, accused of bribery and corruption.

A charge against Netanyahu can be laid in a few months, dismissing all charges against him.

Ohana, for her part, advocates maintaining existing laws that grant Netanyahu immunity.

Germany’s First Transgender Politician

Markus Ganserer, who was re-elected to Bavaria in Germany last October, changed his gender.

Ganserer, representative of Nürnberg-Nord since 2013, had found the elections last October.

Bavarian legislator Ganserer announced at a press conference last week that he would be a woman in parliament.

“I didn’t want to be a woman”

This made Ganserer the first transgender politician in Germany.

Ganserer, who is married and has two children, said he discovered his true identity 10 years ago and said, “I am a woman with all the cells in my body. I wasn’t doing it for fun. I didn’t choose it to be a woman. “he said.

If you want to rename yourself due to the gender change in Germany, you have to have at least two operations and wait a year until your wish is fulfilled. For this reason, the name Markus is used in parliament until the new name Ganserer becomes official.

“THE PERSONALITY OF INDIVIDUALS IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN GENDER”

Ilse Aigner, President of the Bavarian State Parliament, supported the Ganserer and said: “His identity should not be a problem in Parliament. The personality of the individual is more important than his gender.” spoke like.

But there were also politicians who criticized Ganserer. Wolfgang Wiehle from the Alternative Party for Germany (AfD) said in a post on Twitter: “Markus Gaserer wants to reorganize the transsexual law (now Tessa). Fortunately, there is no major problem with fear in our country!”.

Taiwan is The First Asian Country to Legalize Gay Marriage

The Taiwanese parliament has accepted the legalization of same-sex marriages, and Taiwan was the first Asian country to take this step.

In 2017, the country’s constitutional court ruled that gay couples had the right to marry and gave Parliament two years to make this decision.

After discussing three different bills to legalize gay associations in Parliament before the end of May 24, the government’s most advanced bill has been submitted for approval.

During the vote, hundreds of gay rights supporters gathered outside Parliament in the capital, Taipei.

Human rights defenders hugged each other happily when the result was announced.

But conservative opponents of the law are angry with the outcome.

What does the invoice contain?

In the other two projects, prepared by conservative parliamentarians, homosexual associations are called “homosexual family relationships” or “homosexual relationships” and not “marriage”.

However, the government’s bill, which to some extent includes the right to adopt a child, was approved by 66 votes to 27.

The bill will be approved after the signing of President Tsai Ing-wen.

Some gay rights advocates have said that the only text they can accept is the accepted bill.

How was this point reached?

In 2017, the Taiwan Constitutional Court ruled that gay couples have the right to legally marry.

He then gave two years to make the necessary changes.

However, this decision has been publicly implemented and the government has organized a series of referendums on the subject.

The results of the referendum showed that the majority of Taiwanese are against gay marriages and, in the public vote, marriage was defined as a “union between men and women”.

As a result, Taiwan announced that it would not change the definition of marriage in civil law and that a special law for same-sex marriages would be enacted.

What is the situation compared to other countries in the region?
Taiwan is one of the main Asian countries in the field of gay rights and LGBTI groups from regional countries participate in the honor march in Taipei.

The celebration of gay marriages in Vietnam in 2015 was legalized, but these marriages did not give it legal status.

Gay marriages are illegal in China, but the country removed homosexuality from the crime in 1997 and removed it from the list of mental illnesses three years later.

In other Asian countries, a more tolerant attitude towards LGBT is advocated.

In India, the Supreme Court removed homosexual relationships from crime in September 2018.

However, in April of last year, Brunei introduced sharia law to predict homosexual relationships and punish adultery.

One of the 14 Marriages in Germany was Gay Marriage

Since October 2017, when gay marriage was legalized, 33,000 gay couples were married in Germany at the end of 2018. One in every 14 marriages in the country took place between gay couples.
The German statistical authority announced that in the 15 months from October 1, 2017 until the end of 2018, when marriage between homosexual couples was legalized in Germany, approximately 33,000 homosexual couples were married. One of the 14 pirated weddings in Germany took place between gay couples.

According to the Bureau of Statistics, 32,000 904 of the 449,000 466 weddings took place between gay couples, who were hacked between dates.

One in 14 marriages took place between homosexuals

Merkel was against everyone

21,000 477 of these marriages can be attributed to the conversion of the state recognized by the state of “registered friendship” into a marital status if homosexual marriages are not legal.
Prime Minister Angela Merkel stepped back at an event she attended about two years ago regarding her gay marriage, stating that each member of parliament could decide on this issue at her own discretion. The Bundestag then passed the bill that had been under discussion for many years in the summer of 2017.

Interview With Transgender Woman Oyku

We had a very special interview with transgender woman Oyku.

That interview…

When and how did you know that you were a transgender individual?

In fact, as soon as we enter puberty, we begin to understand the differences in us. But it takes time to put a description of it. In the past, homosexuality and transsexuality were not much talked about. We are the people of a period that started to explore homosexuality with Zeki Müren and transsexuality with Bülent Ersoy. Now thanks to technology LGBTI it doesn’t take much time for individuals to discover themselves. Of course, this is the door for them to be able to do the transformation at an early age. We were forced to notice ourselves, but I was still lucky for many of my friends. I started to discover myself during the secondary school period, I could say that I am a trans woman in the university period.

Did your family have any support?

-Turkey get the family support in not easy conditions. At first, I had a hard time expressing myself to my family. But I was lucky that I had a family trying to understand me. And they’ve always been there for me. I’m one of the lucky trans people in the family. I still have strong ties with my family.

When, why and how did you start LGBTI activism?

– My injustices were so painful! And the injustices experienced by my trans friends around me were so great! The urge to resist, the urge to stop injustice triggers you, and it blossoms from somewhere. We first got a magazine called Spartacus in Bursa. But as a result of the prints did not last long. Of course, during these periods, I participated in LGBTI organizations in Istanbul and Ankara. In this period, the violence of the police and the violence of the people in the streets were extremely rare. Our friends were beaten and subjected to violence. And now it was so intolerable that something had to be done. In this process, we have done our first collective action by leading my friends, in front of the Police and with the first press release. Then the first Transgender activism by building on 20th March, 2006 in Turkey and addressing the Bursa Rainbow Association Transgender LGBT rights on legal step I took.

In Bursa, you established the first LGBTI association in Bursa and what kind of activities did you conduct in this association? Which projects did you implement?

-BURSA LGBT Rainbow Association is seen as completely minorities when setting up our goal, we have established with the aim to fight for the rights of Turkey completely legal according to the laws of our association floors. Of course we establish our association in Bursa, and then we find a place with a constant sense of right action always with continuous sitting on Turkey’s agenda as a result of close dialogue. For example, we applied to İŞKUR against the statement of the state administrators who said that they should not make sex work for trans women like every human being. We gathered money among ourselves and opened a cafe where LGBTT individuals work under the name of GÜLLÜM KAHVE. I found that injustice was made by us, I filed a criminal complaint about these officials and they were sentenced, but our workplace was not opened.

We also provided language training, literacy course, handicraft course and most importantly psychological and legal support to the illiterate. In this process, Bursa Nilufer Municipality agreed to give us a place from the marketplace, but we could sell our own products but the governor and a minister prevented it.

Turkey’s first official permission 1. Turkish homosexuals have organized a march on 6 August 2006, is a date. But unfortunately, this march was provoked by the fans of Bursaspor and great events happened. After these events, international institutions have reached to the associations that are still present to support us. But we knew about it later. They also benefited from financial support for us. We did not receive any financial support from any institution and organization during the process of the association. In all of our work, I met most of the items myself and some of them were provided with membership dues and voluntary donations.

Can you tell us about the process that led you to go to Thailand?

Activists and associations in Turkey is not so much, although it is unfortunately almost the only one who can express themselves and also that the struggle for rights. For this reason, I was often in the press with our various activities. At the same time in 2007, the first independent lawmaker from Turkey’s candidacy was vetoed by the YSK .Fakat I announced my candidacy from Bursa me why I raised with criminal fines. Then CHP Bursa deputy A. Candidacy was in the year 2011, and then in 2013 in the local elections. After 2011, I was elected as the Bursa Province and Osmangazi district delegate, and in 2013 I entered the district council with the highest votes among women.

Of course, in this process, local, national and international news appeared in the press. And the forces that are disturbed by the existence of LGBTI individuals have taken action. We have been sued for how to silence this woman and destroy it with the claim of 4,770 years. I was imprisoned for 28 months. Later on the search conditions in Turkey no longer deserves the first Brazilian to be possible, I believe, from there I moved to Thailand.

What do you do in Thailand, how do you live?

Of course it is not easy for a trans woman to start a new life in a new country. The money you have is running out after a certain time. early in this process, I have lived my life by giving guidance to people coming from Turkey. I also had rent income. In this process, I trained myself and started to work in a private hospital. I’m the head of department at the hospital where I work. And I was promoted to serve as general manager in our newly opened hospital.

How is life for LGBTI individuals in Thailand? Is it a country that can be called free enough for LGBTI individuals?

-Thailand has a distinct tolerance with the influence of Buddhism culture. Of course, this tolerance is not the same in all Buddhist countries. Like Islam, Buddhism is different in countries. In Thailand, being homosexual or being transgender is not socially strange. A peer or trans can do any profession. Doctor, stewardess, police … can do anything. Nobody would even look back.

I think it’s one of the most tolerant countries in the world. But of course there are some shortcomings. For example, even if a transgender woman changes gender, her official name and identity do not change. They do not have legal special laws, but they also have many rights. But I think there are laws to be enacted.

Do you think the return to Turkey?

I think -Türkiye to arrive, of course, but not now. Justice should come to my country, freedom of thought should come to my country, people in my country should be equal so that I can return to my country. Unfortunately, my country is getting worse every day. People are flocking to Turkey abandoned asylum in other countries. Perhaps never in history did not migrate this far Turkey. We’re going back on human rights. In the past Turkey’s interests as a special guest on all national channels I live broadcast. Now there is little or no LGBTI news or issues. They look at us like the plague. I don’t think we have security.

As a matter of fact, the statements of the Interior Minister on this issue and the statements of some religious groups trigger LGBTI hostility. However, the rulers of my country should support all sectors. LGBTI individuals were not citizens of the Republic of Turkey from space. But unfortunately my country LGBTI individuals have no value until Syrian refugees who migrated to Turkey, unfortunately. Here are all of these reasons I were in Turkey, even now I come or even think that my opportunity to make my struggle for human rights.

I think that justice and democratic rights have been suspended. I do not think that this process will end soon. But I will certainly return to my country, oppressed, despised, not put in place of human being, most importantly, I will continue to return to my LGBTI friends who do not have the right to live humanly. These days will surely pass. The republic founded by Atatürk is a secular and democratic country founded on solid foundations. As in the past, not the reaction will gain light.

Going about sharing your critical LGBT associations in Turkey .. what you want from the association?

-TURKEY associations in Europe and the US as the country and millions of dollars they received from the consulates of these countries that I criticized the AKP’s interior minister confirmed Süleyman Soylu, said 20 million dollars. I don’t make it up, but I’m the only one who makes strong criticisms of this issue, which has sounded strongly for years.

If you pay attention, the people who work in these associations and the salary earners are always the same people. It hasn’t changed in years.

And they do a few seminars apart from a few fake events and distribute condoms. Many of our trans friends are killed, sick, arrested. In spite of these millions of dollars, I support more people through the facebook group called Trans Solidarity Emergency Aid.

A lot of help, such as writing a free petition, providing a free lawyer, raising money for friends in distress, treating someone with a drug problem. But these associations do not act this way. They are not incapable of giving legal support to a trans and are not in a difficult situation.

So why are these associations getting these million dollars ???

Is this money only given to a few association managers to live in luxury?

At the same time, LGBTI associations are not only established for Kurdish LGBTI people.

So why didn’t these associations claim the cases of people who suffered injustice like Eylül Cansın? They didn’t claim it because it wasn’t Kurdish?

However, these associations have been supporting Pınar Selek, who is a non-LGBTI bazaar defendant, for months and still. A Ahmet Yildiz does not value as much for this association of trans women.

Since the AKP came, these associations have hardly even heard voices, but they are taking money. More importantly, they do their best to keep the money they receive from LGBTI individuals. They don’t release their financial reports. Unfortunately, LGBTI individuals in our country are unconscious about these issues. They do not seek the right of the Turkish people.

However, these millions of dollars received by these associations are not given so that only a few associations can receive salaries as much as the executive president. All Turkish for LGBT given. I am against this injustice or I am not against associations.

LGBT associations in Turkey at the moment there is almost a monopolization of the so-called civil society organizations and institutions, which in this case was the rant door. The assets of those working in these associations and their relatives of 1,2,3 degrees should be investigated for 20 years.

Why did the members of these associations fleeing abroad defected? These should be seriously investigated. And associations have been set up for LGBTI rights, not to be the backyard of any political formation or for separatism.

The oldest association has existed for 20 years and the executives are always the same people. What these associations as they obtained the rights for LGBTI individuals in Turkey? What are these acquisitions? These associations want a world without a pimp without a boss. Why don’t they fight for rights in labor laws?

I think what I’m trying to say is clear enough. Any person who already runs the logic can notice them. Nobody needs to say anything.

When work began to be done in Turkey activism for LGBT activism OUT OF MONEY then in Turkey. Activism is for the struggle for voluntary rights, not for money. Activism should not be done as civil servant or private sector labor.

I hope that one day that it FUND MONEY institutions giving off that tap the interests of young LGBT individuals volunteer to do real activism in Turkey.

Like fossilized politicians in political parties, fossilized exploitist activist decay disappears from the exploiters.

Despite everything, I also will change the history of youth from umutluyum.türki trans activists.

We thank you.

The Decision For The Netflix’s Gay Jesus Film

In Brazil, a judge ruled that the film, in which Jesus was portrayed as homosexual, was removed from the digital film and television series Netflix.

One of the attackers reportedly fled to Russia and was wanted by Interpol.

No explanation has yet been received from Netflix or Porta dos Fundos.

Brazil’s extreme right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro said earlier that his country would not allow it to be a eş gay tourism paradise,, and also said, dim I wouldn’t love him if I had a gay son..

Bolsonaro’s son Eduardo Bolsonaro, the response to the film on the Twitter account “Trash. Brazil does not reflect the society,” commented.
