A Paper Bird - sex, rights and the world

In devastated Romania, Scott Long started doing human rights work. "It happened quite unexpectedly, almost without my knowing that was what it was. Together with  a few Romanian friends, in the weeks after I first moved there I started visiting prisons, documenting and defending people imprisoned under the country’s Ceaușescu-era sodomy law. We had very little idea of human rights law, norms, precedents, or standards; we were, in a sense, making it up as we went along.  We produced some of the first human rights information ever about abuses based on sexual orientation. We were responsible for Amnesty International taking up one of its first gay cases as a prisoner of conscience, and helped bring about Human Rights Watch’s policy change to act against such violations."


The Bully Bloggers

Jack Halberstam blogs here with others. "The Bully Bloggers are a queer word art group. We write about everything queer, so, pretty much everything.  Politics, culture, etiquette, vampires, cartoons, the news, philosophy, utopia and revolution.  This blog is our Bully Pulpit; we preach to the converted, the unconverted and the indifferent."


Feminists Fighting Transphobia

We may have different philosophies of and approaches to feminism and womanism; we may have different ideas about the origins and construction of gender identity; but we all affirm that our visions of feminism and/or womanism INCLUDE trans people, women, men, and genderqueer, and that fighting transphobia is a vital part of fighting patriarchy and misogyny.  We will not allow transphobia to be the only face feminism and/or womanism show to trans people.

The 60-page booklet sets out the source and scope of some of the core legal obligations that States have to protect the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. It is designed as a tool for States, to help them better understand the nature of their obligations and the steps required to meet them, as well as for civil society activists, human rights defenders and others seeking to hold Governments to account for breaches of international human rights law.

Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) Press Statement (PDF)

Zimbabwe, 7 March 2013

GALZ is of the view that Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s statements published in the Herald Thursday 7 March 2013, that same-sex people who want to marry have a 'problem', fuel public prejudice against LGBTI individuals and contradict the very preamble of a draft constitution that he is seemingly promoting.
