Kuss-Verbot durch die Polizei am Tag des #CSD in #Siegen.
Ein Thread.

Finde es immer noch krass, dass es scheinbar in Deutschland öffentliche Orte gibt, an denen man sich nicht küssen darf, die Polizei einem das auch noch untersagt.
#si2707 #CSD2019 #Pride @csdsiegen
Zum Hintergrund und derzeitigen Stand:
Am 27.7.2019 fand der #CSDSiegen mit Demonstration und Straßenfest statt.
Entlang der Demoroute hatten auch die Nazis rund um den 3.(irr)weg eine Versammlung gegen "Homopropaganda" und für "gesunde Familien" etc.
(Siehe u.a. @infozentrale)
In der Stadt gab es verschiedene Stände um sich gegen die faschos zu positionieren.
In direkter Nähe am Kölner Tor auch die SPD, auf der anderen Straßenseite der @AStAUniSiegen.
Während der CSD Demo sollte es am Kölner Tor auch ein "kiss-in" geben.

False @jerseycornelia
People are imprisoned & killed for being gay.
I don't have the same rights you have. I have been fired from jobs, denied housing, thrown out of public accommodations, expelled from HS, put in a mental hospital for #conversiontherapy for being a #lesbian.
You dismissing the impact of #homophobia on the lives of millions, @jerseycornelia, is saying that you really couldn't care less about the oppression and violence that #LGBTQ people suffer.

This is the best headline you will see today, I guarantee it.
Women athletes don't have to do anything but be athletes
And objects of adoration.

On #MeganRapinoe: "An essential rebel: a defiant woman refusing to play by the antiquated be-cute-and-courteous rules that make many men feel better about female athletes."…

Tomorrow, I begin my PGY-31 year: 30 years since graduating med school & 25 since becoming credentialed in #Radiology. Today is #PrideNYC & a celebration of #Stonewall50. Here are some lessons for all about how times have changed & how much more we still can learn. 1/
Med school coincided with the emergence of the AIDS epidemic. As a very closeted and too young medical student (graduated at 23), I watched as too many young (mostly) men were dehumanized. There were many heroes out there. More often, we didn’t do enough. 2/
I remember the frequent “joke” told by my peers/friends in school: “What is the hardest part about having AIDS? Convincing your parents that you are Haitian.” (Ask someone older if you don’t get it). The stigma was huge; the fears were great. 3/

Don’t talk about #Stonewall50 if you’re not going to support trans ppl.
Don’t celebrate #Stonewall if you’re not going to fight for queer & trans ppl of color.
Don’t claim OUR history if you don’t intend to continue to struggle for freedom & justice for ALL queer & trans folks.
This means supporting sex workers.
This means fighting for disability justice.
This means condemning the prison industrial complex.
This means recognizing cis privilege.
This means no fucking cops & corporations at #Pride.
This means not being content until ALL OF US can live our lives free from racist, sexist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, classist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, Islamaphobic violence in a nation that provides the food, housing, education, & healthcare we need to thrive.

E hoje, no dia 28 de junho, dia do #OrgulhoLGBT, fico sabendo da notícia de que o governo de @jairbolsonaro matou o Conselho Nacional de Combate à Discriminação LGBT (CNCD-LGBT). Segue o fio para entender o que era o CNCD e o que aconteceu com ele. #Pride2019 #Pride #Stonewall50
Para quem não sabe, o CNCD-LGBT foi um mecanismo participativo em que representantes da sociedade civil e do governo se reuniam para discutir as políticas públicas LGBT. Ali se fiscalizava o que existia, mas também propunha novas políticas
O CNCD surgiu em 2001 como um conselhão que agregava diversos temas e populações. O tempo passou, outros conselhos específicos foram sendo criados e o CNCD meio que sobrou pra gente. Aí no final de 2010 ele foi reestruturado e se tornou o CNCD-LGBT…

To celebrate #PrideMonth, we have a special moment of our own to share… The first time a Pride flag has ever flown from our @NewYorkFed offices. 🏳️‍🌈 #MomentsOfPride #Pride #WorldPride #Stonewall50
Hi, I’m Kathi. I grew up a military brat and lived all over, including Tunisia & Bolivia. I’m grateful for the exposure to different cultures and social settings as I grew up. I believe it helped me understand myself and others in more profound ways. #MomentsOfPride #Stonewall50
The basis of the LGBTQ+ community is so fundamentally basic to human nature: equality, self-love, and acceptance. I find it no coincidence that synonyms of the word ‘gay’ are cheerful, jolly, and vivacious. It’s a human right to live an enjoyable life. #MomentsOfPride #PrideMonth

1/ Happy #PrideMonth!

This year, @HRC is celebrating 50 years of #Pride, and two momentous anniversaries in #LGBTQ history: the 50th anniversary of the uprising at #Stonewall in 1969 and the first Pride parade a year later. #Stonewall50 #Pride2019
2/ In the earliest hours of June 28, 1969, a group of LGBTQ people reached their tipping point. They were peacefully enjoying the evening at the #Stonewall Inn in New York City when police raided the bar and started hauling out the patrons.
3/ No longer willing to take the harassment and discrimination, the LGBTQ individuals at #Stonewall fought back. Their protest lasted six days … and sparked a movement that is still building today. #Pride2019
