At an #EU Arab League summit in #Egypt, #Luxembourg Prime Minister @Xavier_Bettel told Arab leaders “he was married to a man" and would face capital punishment in many of their countries. google.com/amp/s/amp.fran… #LGBTQ 🌈
Centre-right politician Bettel became the first European Union leader to enter into a same-sex union after he married his partner Gauthier Destenay, a Belgian architect, in 2015. #LGBTQ
I am happy for Rami Malek and his Oscar on a personal level. However: I truly disliked Bohemian Rhapsody AND I wish he had mentioned the #Egyptian #LGBTQ community in his award speech.He portrayed a queer man and the queer community in Egypt has faced the worst crackdown ever. 🌈
I wrote this in 2017 about the hysterical homophobia in #Egypt and the worst crackdown against the #LGBTQ community in modern #Egyptian history google.com/amp/s/www.nyti…
If those with power - celebrity power, political power, the power of a platform - don’t speak up in support of a community whose members’ lives are in danger, who are tortured and given jail sentences for being #LGBTQ, who will?
