July 20, 2006 Comments Off on Depenalise homophobia
Yesterday, July 19th… Rainbowhouse (locally for Belgium) together with ILGA organised a day against homophobia.
The choice of this particular date was not random, it was one year ago that two young men were hung in Iran because of their homosexual behaviour.
The action was mainly focused on depenalisation, but people are still being attacked by youngsters, gangs,… for being gay. And this might come as a surprise to some, but you don’t have to go as far as Jamaica… this still happens today in places like Brussels, Paris, London and probably also on the other side of the big pond!
