LGBTQ Abuse Continues in Qatar In Spite of World Cup Event, Gay Cuban Couples Can Now Marry, Ryan Field Books

 LGBTQ Abuse Continues in Qatar In Spite of World Cup Event

I’ve posted about the abuse and homophobia in Qatar earlier this month, and now it’s making news again. This time is because Preventive Security forces in Qatar are now arresting LGBTQ people in public places at random. 

Human Rights Watch has been documenting what’s been happening and so far they have at least 6 cases of LGBTQ abuse and Qatar is forcing conversion therapy on some. 

It’s really very disturbing. You can read it all, here.  I can’t believe they will still hold the World Cup there. That’s so wrong. 

Gay Cuban Couples Can Now Marry

On a much lighter note, under a brand new law, gay Cuban couples will now be allowed to marry just like straight Cuban couples. 

You see, Cuba has a new family code that is now allowing gay marriage and even surrogate mothers. And the public voted on this, too. Cuba is now the 9th country in Latin America to legalize same sex marriage. 

Here’s more. It’s hard to believe that some members of the LGBTQ community were against voting “yes” for these changes because they don’t believe they need a piece of paper to validate their relationships. And how stupid is that? It’s more than a piece of paper, you ding dongs. It makes us equal with straight people, not to mention the benefits of being a married couple in the legal sense. 

A Different Kind of Southern Love Story

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no-nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
