ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
Demonstration on 31 August in Berlin
In June 2013 the Russian government under president Putin passed a new law which discriminates against homosexuals, transsexuals and intersexuals. The societal situation for these groups has become intolerable, even life threatening.
That’s why we’ve decided to speak out against this injustice. Please help us fight for the abolition of this discriminating law!
Russian "Side by Side" LGBT Film Festival needs your help
Guilty and Fined 12,500 Euros for Violating “Foreign Agents” Law, Russia
On 6 June, 2013, Saint Petersburg, Russia Magistrates Court Judge Oleg Camaldinov took a mere 10 minutes of ‘deliberation’ to declare Side by Side LGBT Film Festival guilty for not registering as a ‘foreign agent’. The judge, even after defence lawyers had presented 4 hours of solid and incontrovertible argument, was not to be persuaded opting to side with the local public prosecutor who produced flimsy and insubstantial evidence against the festival. The organization faces a fine of 12,500 Euros.

Hamburg Pride 2012 – 28 July to 5 August
Marriage 2.0 - After the Obligations now the Rights!
Under the motto „Marriage 2.0 - After the Obligations now the Rights!” our campaign for Hamburg Pride 2012 starts now. We are calling upon the rights for same-sex marriage. First Chairman, Dr Lars Peters: „ The so-called Same-Sex Partnership is a shrouded empty notion covering that homosexual couples are still being discriminated. Differences exist for example in the laws about adoption and in income tax rights. The injustice needs to be finally laid to rest." The Motto and the principal claim had been developed by the end of 2011 by a 30-head committee.
