Bolivia: Lesbians discriminated against on bus

LaPazBus Apology

A lesbian couple reported through their Twitter account that a PumaKatari bus official discriminated against them, interpreting that the act of boarding the bus holding hands implied “a lack of respect for families.”

Following the reaction of many users and more information from the complaint, the La Paz Bus company expressed its apologies using its account on the same network. “PUBLIC APOLOGY
Through this means we are aware of your case, and we already have inbox contact with you, in the first instance it is appropriate to ask for our sincere PUBLIC APOLOGIES. Our commitment is to provide the best transportation service in Bolivia,” La Paz Bus wrote.

The complainant considered that she and her partner had a difficult time boarding the bus, which even brought her girlfriend “to the brink of tears,” and wondered if PumaKatari officials do the same with heterosexual couples. “I would like to know how many heterosexual couples do the Puma make cry for being together? How many are publicly humiliated for looking at each other with tenderness?”

“I want to be told with numbers. How many times have you approached a heterosexual couple to tell them to have RESPECT FOR FAMILIES? ”

A cuántas les humillan públicamente por mirarse con ternura?”

“Quiero que me digan.con números. Cuantas veces se han acercado a una pareja heterosexual a decirles que tengan RESPETO POR LAS FAMILIAS?”

USA: teacher sues for being fired because she’s lesbian

Clare Pioneers

Clare Public Schools is being sued in federal court by a former adult education teacher who says she was fired because she’s a lesbian.

Julie Mayra, hired by the district sometime around August 2012, said she had a great working relationship with her colleagues — including being promoted to a full-time position — until the district hired a new superintendent and principal for the 2016-07 academic year. Then, according to her complaint filed in federal court, things slid rapidly.

In particular, Georgette Kelley, the new principal, began to target Mayra, according to the court record. Kelley is a devout Pentecostal Christian who is vocal about her opposition to homosexuals.

Kelley is no longer listed on the Clare Public Schools website as employed there.

Update: Lesbian Police Couple Lose Discrimination Claim against Australian Federal Police

Emma-Kate McPherson , left, and her partner Kathryn Lee Richens at the Federal Court on Monday.

An Australian Federal Police officer has lost her discrimination claim after the force repeatedly denied her transfer requests to the same city as her same-sex partner.

Detective Sergeant Kathryn Richens and Senior Constable Emma-Kate McPherson began a relationship in 2013 while based in Canberra and Brisbane.

The couple claimed that despite the repeated transfer requests they were told their case is not the same as that of a heterosexual couple, the AAP reported.

In a 2013 letter, they said they were informed that their “circumstances are not comparative to the co-location of heterosexuals who meet genuine compassionate reasons” and that their living apart was “not the AFP’s problem”.

Mexico: lesbians forced to live as sisters for 30 years seek legal protection as they age

LESBIANAS-MAYORES

Sara and Carmen are false names. They use them because they don’t want to make their identity known, but Sara and Carmen are a couple of Mexican lesbians who have been together for over 30 years. They live in Tabasco which still has not passed equal marriage legislation.

Mexico is not a good place for diversity and so they have been posing as sisters for neighbours and some friends for 30 years. … One of them has diabetes, in addition to an amputated leg and other ailments that mean her life may be nearing its end. That would mean that one of them would be a widow without any pension and without being able to control her possessions.

“On this occasion they decided to make the trip to another state instead of processing an amparo that takes 12 to 18 months in Mexico City to finalize equal marriage, because one of the members of the couple is very sick , and there is no time to wait for a judge’s decision. With the money raised (from a neighbourhood activity) the couple will be supported with their transfer, the witnesses and the expenses of the procedures, because what is sought with the legalization of the union is to guarantee the rights of the pension and inheritance of assets that they have achieved in 30 years of living together, ”said the president of the Community Center for Inclusion AC Armando Cornelio Dionisio.
(Translated)

 

Sara y Carmen son nombres falsos. Los utilizan porque no quieren dar a conocer su identidad, pero Sara y Carmen son una pareja de lesbianas mexicanas que llevan juntas más de 30 años. Viven en Tabasco y allí aún continúa sin aprobarse el matrimonio igualitario.

México no es un lugar agradable con la diversidad y, por eso, llevan estos 30 años haciéndose pasar por hermanas para vecinos y algunos amigos. … Una de ellas tiene diabetes, además de una pierna amputada y otras dolencias que hacen que su vida pueda estar próxima a su fin. Eso supondría que una de ellas quedaría viuda sin pensión alguna y sin poder tener dominio sobre sus posesiones.

“En esta ocasión decidieron hacer el viaje a otro estado en lugar de tramitar un amparo que se lleva de 12 a 18 meses en la Ciudad de México para concretar el matrimonio igualitario, debido a que una de las integrantes de la pareja, está muy enferma, y ya no hay tiempo para esperar el resolutivo de un juez. Con el dinero recaudado (de una actividad vecinal) se apoyará a la pareja con su traslado, el de los testigos y los gastos de los trámites, pues lo que se busca con la legalización de la unión es garantizar los derechos de la pensión y de herencia de bienes que han logrado en 30 años de vivir juntas”, ha declarado el presidente del Centro Comunitario para la Inclusión A.C. Armando Cornelio Dionisio.

Colombia: court orders liquor store to apologise to lesbian couple

Lesbianas-barranquilla-el-heraldo

After reviewing the case, the Constitutional Court of Barranquilla ordered the homophobic owner of a liquor store to apologize to a lesbian couple. The case reached the Court after a legal battle initiated by one of the lesbians discriminated against for homophobia in a liquor store in Barranquilla, Colombia . According to the complainants, the events occurred in July last year. The lesbian couple went to La Licorería in Barranquilla. They conversed holding hands when the owner demanded that they be released, telling them that: “The establishment is not an environment for same-sex couples […] Such shows are not allowed .”

The couple then called the waiter to complain about the attitude of the owner of the establishment. However, they did not receive help from him either, who replied that he ” did not like those behaviours. ”

It was then that the lesbian couple decided to pay their bill, and wait for an answer from the owner, but they did not get any. The homophobic man only replied that these were the establishment’s policies and that they had previously had “image problems” due to the presence of same-sex couples.

Tras revisar el caso, la Corte Constitucional de Barranquilla ordenó al propietario homofóbico de una licorería disculparse con una pareja de lesbianas.
El caso llegó a la Corte después de una batalla jurídica iniciada por una de las lesbianas discriminadas por homofobia en una licorería en Barranquilla, Colombia. De acuerdo con las denunciantes, los hechos ocurrieron en julio del año pasado. La pareja de lesbianas acudió a La Licorería en Barranquilla. Ellas conversaban tomadas de las manos cuando el propietario les exigió que se soltaran, diciéndoles que: «El establecimiento no es de ambiente para las parejas del mismo sexo […] Ese tipo de espectáculos no están permitidos».

La pareja entonces llamó al mesero para quejarse de la actitud del propietario del establecimiento. Sin embargo, no recibieron ayuda por parte de él tampoco, quien les respondió que a él «no le gustaban esos comportamientos».

Fue entonces que la pareja de lesbianas decidió pagar su cuenta, y esperar una respuesta por parte del propietario, pero no obtuvieron ninguna. El señor homofóbico solo se limitó a contestar que esas eran las políticas del establecimiento y que anteriormente ya habían tenido «problemas de imagen» por la presencia de parejas del mismo sexo.

Venezuela: School discriminates against 13 year old for lesbian kiss

Karina Barbosa

Tamara Adrián said … that the Instituto Escuela School located in Prados del Este, Caracas, denied the re-enrolment of a teenager on allegations of “bad application and bad behaviour”, this after having kissed an older [female] classmate when they were in a school transport, according to the Efecto Cocuyo web portal.

The girl’s mother, Karina Barbosa, complained to the aforementioned media that her daughter has not been the only person harmed by these school decisions. In the case of his son, he was also denied the re-enrolment process for the 2019-2020 school year, as well as the other educational transportation partner and a friend of his daughter.

With this measure taken by the Instituto Escuela school, four students are being affected by not being allowed to re-enrol.

Barbosa also worked as an English teacher at that school for six years until she resigned in 2017. Two years after having left the academic institution, she sees the way in which her children are discriminated against by administrative staff.

The kiss happened on May 17, and it was on May 20 when the campus took action against the girl to a point that the staff of Instituto Escuela began to monitor her in everything she did – this situation remained until the end of the 2018 – 2019 school year. “She had to be accompanied to the bathroom, to the infirmary, they even told her where she could sit in the transport,” said Karina Barbosa.
(Translated)

Tamara Adrián se expresó … que el colegio Instituto Escuela ubicado en Prados del Este, Caracas, le negó la reinscripción a una adolescente donde alegan “mala aplicación y mala conducta”, esto luego de haberse besado en la boca con una compañera mayor que ella en el momento que iban en un transporte escolar, reseñó el portal web Efecto Cocuyo.

La madre de la niña, Karina Barbosa denunció ante el medio antes mencionado que su pequeña no ha sido la única persona perjudicada por estas decisiones del colegio. En el caso de su hijo varón también le fue negado el proceso de reinscripción para el año escolar 2019 – 2020, así como a la otra compañera de transporte educativo y a una amiga de su hija.

Con esta medida tomada por el colegio Instituto Escuela, se están viendo afectados cuatro estudiantes los que no les permitieron el proceso de reinscripción.

Barbosa, también perteneció a ese colegio durante seis años donde trabajó como profesora de inglés y fue en el año 2017 cuando renunció. Luego de dos años de haberse retirado de la institución académica percibe la manera en como sus hijos son discriminados por el personal administrativo.

El hecho del beso sucedió el pasado 17 de mayo, por lo que fue el 20 de mayo cuando el plantel tomó la medida contra la niña a un punto que el personal de Instituto Escuela comenzó a vigilarla en cada cosa que hacía, esta situación se mantuvo hasta la finalización del año escolar 2018 – 2019. “Debía ser acompañada al baño, a la enfermería, incluso le decían dónde podía sentarse en el transporte”, manifestó Karina Barbosa.

U.K: Lesbian actor is scared to hold partner’s hand in public

michelle-hardwick.jpg

Actor said that while she received praise for her portrayal of a same-sex relationship on the popular soap, being in one in real life was a different experience.

Emmerdale star Michelle Hardwick has said she sometimes feels scared to hold her partner’s hand in public for fear of a homophobic attack.

Hardwick, who plays vet Vanessa Woodfield, told the Sunday Mirror that she and show producer Kate Brooks sometimes “instinctively let go of each other’s hands” if they see a group of young men “because we’re scared they’ll turn on us”.

“We live with that fear every day,” she said, later adding: “I feel like we’re going backwards in society with our attitudes.”

“So people who say, ‘Gay Pride? Why isn’t there a Straight Pride?’ I’ll tell you why, because you don’t need it. Because luckily for you, you’re able to be affectionate with your partner in public and you won’t be abused for it. It’s absolutely vile what goes on.”

Spain: Lesbian Couple Fight to Keep Popular Bar After Neighbours’ ‘Harassment Campaign’

bettys-couple.jpg

The Lesbian couple who own Betty’s International Music Bar, in Cala Egos, fear their venue will be forced to close after the town hall warned them about the number of calls it has been receiving.

That is despite the venue being 100% legal and holding the correct licences and after having invested more than €30,000 in sound-proofed ceilings, doors and windows.

“Our neighbours just want us out, it’s been a non-stop campaign of harassment,” co-owner Leanne Green, 37, from near Leeds, told the Olive Press last night.

“The owner of the apartment upstairs told us he doesn’t want ‘dirty lesbians’ around here and his kids who live there have spat on our terraces and sometimes we see them just staring into our CCTV cameras trying to intimidate us.”

India: Lesbian couple thrown out of bar, threatened with exposure

Rasika Gopalakrishnan and Shivangi Singh Photo: Facebook/itsshivangisingh

Two women in their early twenties are going viral online for sharing their harrowing experience which they faced at a club in Chennai. The two women alleged that they were treated badly by the club because they are a same sex couple.

Rasika Gopalakrishnan and Shivangi Singh, took to their respective Facebook pages to tell their experience at a bar called The Slate Hotels.

In a long FB post, Rasika recounted her experience saying that the club apparently accused them of doing something else and insisted them to leave the premises even though they did not do anything.

“I am devastated by the assumptions that are made about people who deviate even slightly from the norm. They decided to make a ‘threat’ out of us for absolutely no good reason, and worse, tried to make us feel guilty for something we didn’t do.”

She also accused the hotel of threatening them by saying that they had a video of them making out and they would make the video public.

20 Lesbophobic Things My Male Friends Have Said to Me

by Amy Dyess

Several of my straight, gay, and bi male friends said those lesbophobic things to me. I’m butch and look very gay, which made me a visible target for sexual harassment. It’s partially why I moved from the American South, where all of this happened. I decided to share because recently the memories have been triggered. I want them out, and maybe writing about my experiences will help other lesbians.

Male friendships are tricky, no matter what a man’s orientation is. As you can see, many straight and bi male friends are really trying to hook up. Gay men project their own fears onto lesbians. Gay men have also groped me in dark, sweaty gay bars. Lesbians have to be careful around all men.

Spain: Judge remains barred over malicious prevarication against lesbian couple

Lesbians in spain

The Contentious-Administrative Chamber of the Supreme Court has confirmed the decision taken at the time by the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) to deny the reinstatement to active duty in the judicial career of Fernando Ferrín Calamita, the judge of Murcia who was sentenced in 2009 to ten years of special disqualification for the “malicious” delay in the procedures for adopting a minor by the wife of the biological mother of the child.

The resolution, of which the magistrate José Manuel Sieira has been a speaker, recalls that the crime of prevarication is one of the most serious that a member of the judicial career can commit  in that it breaches (both) the essence of the Judiciary and the baseline behaviour expected of those who represent it.

Moreover, it distinguishes between the crime of malicious prevarication provided for in article 446 of the Criminal Code, for which Ferrín Calamita was convicted, and that of guilty prevarication of article 447. Thus, he emphasizes that, in this case, “we are facing a crime of greater gravity”, which does the damage to the public service is undoubtedly greater.

The events date back to 2006 when a lesbian couple began the adoption process with the aim of one being recognized as the adoptive mother of the girl that her romantic partner had conceived through artificial insemination.
(Translated)

La Sala de lo Contencioso-Administrativo del Tribunal Supremo ha confirmado la decisión adoptada en su día por el Consejo General del Poder Judicial (CGPJ) de denegar la rehabilitación y el reingreso al servicio activo en la carrera judicial de Fernando Ferrín Calamita, el juez de Murcia que fue condenado en 2009 a diez años de inhabilitación especial por el retraso “malicioso” de los trámites de adopción de una menor por parte de la esposa de la madre biológica de la pequeña.

La resolución, de la que ha sido ponente el magistrado José Manuel Sieira, recuerda que el delito de prevaricación es uno de los más graves que puede cometer un miembro de la carrera judicial en cuanto quiebra la esencia del Poder Judicial y la conducta mínimamente exigible a quien lo encarna.

Es más, distingue entre el delito de prevaricación dolosa previsto en al artículo 446 del Código Penal, por el que fue condenado precisamente Ferrín Calamita, y el de prevaricación culposa del artículo 447. Así, subraya que, en este caso, “estamos ante un delito de mayor gravedad”, lo que hace el perjuicio para el servicio público sea indudablemente mayor.

Los hechos se remontan al año 2006 cuando una pareja de lesbianas inició el proceso de adopción con el objetivo de que una de ellas fuera reconocida como la madre adoptiva de la niña que su pareja sentimental había concebido por inseminación artificial.(Original)

Australia: Lesbian elder speaks about abuse as young woman and in ageing

Malloy Rolfe (left) and Dr Catherine Barrett at the 2019 National Elder Abuse Conference .

The 84-year-old gay Adelaide woman began to speak to the National Elder Abuse Conference in Brisbane in clear and simple language.
“My name is Malloy and I’m going to share a story about what it was like to grow up as a lesbian in the 1950s,” Hazel ‘Malloy’ Rolfe said.
“Then I’m going to tell you about a recent experience of elder abuse at an aged care service provider.  Sadly, the two stories are connected.”
She moved to Australia from Middlesex in the UK as a teenager in 1948.
Ms Rolfe was sexually assaulted by her now deceased father, then her mother died nine years after arriving in Adelaide.
Ms Rolfe was later treated in Adelaide with LSD and electro-shock therapy for her sexuality.
She said growing up as a lesbian in Australia in the 1950s was “simply awful”.
“I was told that if I went back to feeling like a lesbian, God wouldn’t love me,” Ms Rolfe told delegates.
More recently, she was refused permission by a major aged-care provider to speak to women at aged-care facilities in South Australia because she was lesbian.

Kimberly Page is speaking out publicly about a violent attack as police search for suspects. Page said that she and her girlfriend were out late with friends in a town on Long Island on July 7.

At around 3:30 a.m., Page and her girlfriend were alone when a group of men approached them and taunted them.

They “started saying obscene things to my girlfriend and I,” Page said. “It originated by him asking her if she wanted a real [expletive] and why is she with this [slur].” She said that they tried to ignore the men, but then the men got angry.

One of the men told Page’s girlfriend, “I’m not going to fight you, I’m going to fight her,” because Page is “a dude.”

The man slapped Page’s girlfriend and then punched Page.

A St. Louis couple said a wedding dress designer refused to make a garment for them, saying it goes against her faith. Tiffany Allen and Angel Lane said they reached out to the New York-based company, D. AUXILLY, through e-mail to get some information. They said the designer, Dominique Galbraith, responded with the following e-mail that said in part:

“I wouldn’t be able to make a piece for a same-sex wedding. It goes against my faith in Christ. I believe Jesus died for our sins so that we would live for him according to His Holy Word. I know you both love each other and that this feels right but I encourage you both to reconsider and see what the Lord has to say and the wonderful things He has in store for you both if you trust and obey Him.

God Bless and be with you both!

I’m available to talk and share more about Jesus if you’d like. Feel free to call me.”

Spain: Lesbian couple verbally abused by woman after she spots them ‘kissing’

Lesbians in spain

A woman with a buggy has been filmed hurling a torrent of homophobic abuse at a lesbian couple after she reportedly spotted them kissing.

In the footage taken on a tube, the woman is heard calling the pair “d—-” and “c———-“.

She also refers to her own gay brother as a “f—–” and shouts: “You disgust me, I have a gay brother, but he doesn’t kiss in front of me because he respects me.”

She adds: “It disgusts me to see you kissing. If you want respect, you also have to respect me.”

When she appears to hear the couple speaking Catalan, the woman scoffs and says: “Oh, you are also Catalan!”

One of the women replies: “Oh, so you are a homophobic and a racist!”

Mexico: Lesbians, women in resistance

Love doesn't hurt hate does

Photo: Mario Jiménez Leyva

Vilma Katt Ulloa, lesbofeminist activist, argues that the fight against discrimination based on sexual preference, in Mexico was led by women. Thus, the names of lesbians such as María Castro, Nancy Cárdenas and Alma Margarita Oceguera are inscribed in the story. Over the years, the movement for the vindication of their rights was aimed at making women again invisible under the predominance of machismo and the misogyny also present within the gay community. “There is an internalized lesbophobia that is lived within those letters with which the non-heterosexual population has been characterized.”

A teenager was left bleeding and bruised after she was beaten up by two other women from her school.

Ellie-Mae Mulholland, 18, of Hull, UK, said that she confronted “one of her friends” yesterday afternoon over some money that the friend owed her.

“She had seen a couple of her friends, who are usually her friends, and one of them owed her a tenner and Ellie asked about it,” Mulholland’s sister Stevie-Leigh Ansell told Hull Live. “The lass said she never had it. Then they both beat [Ellie-Mae] black and blue.”

“Because she is gay they called her a ‘F–king lesbian, you and your girlfriend are going to get it ten times worse next time,’” Ansell said.

Update: Argentinian lesbian jailed for one year for resisting lesbophobic arrest

Mariana Gomez Rocio Girat

Kissing is not a crime, Enough of lesbian-hate and Absolution for Marian could be read on the multicoloured placards that dozens of activists held from ten in the morning in front of Criminal Court No. 26 of Buenos Aires. On the International LGBTIQ + Pride Day , they awaited the verdict in the trial against Mariana Gómez, accused of resistance to authority and minor injuries to the police who arrested her when she kissed her wife, Rocío Girat, and smoked in the lobby of a station. The festive chants that had been heard for almost two hours were transformed into a growing murmur of disbelief: Judge Marta Yungaro sentenced Gomez to one year in prison. She will not go to jail, but she must pay the costs of the trial.
(Translated)

“Besar no es delito”, “Basta de lesboodio” y “Absolución para Marian” podía leerse en las pancartas multicolor que desde las diez de la mañana sostenían decenas de activistas frente al Tribunal Oral Criminal Nº26 de Buenos Aires. En el Día Internacional del Orgullo LGBTIQ+, aguardaban el veredicto en el juicio contra Mariana Gómez, acusada de resistencia a la autoridad y lesiones leves a la policía que la arrestó cuando se besaba con su mujer, Rocío Girat, y fumaba en el vestíbulo de una estación. Los cánticos festivos que se habían escuchado durante casi dos horas se transformaron en un murmullo creciente de incredulidad: la jueza Marta Yungaro condenó a Gómez a un año de prisión en suspenso. No irá a la cárcel, pero debe pagar las costas del juicio.
