Bulgarian Politician Demands 'Outing' of Gay MPs

Bulgarian Politician Demands 'Outing' of Gay MPs
- In an interview for NOVA TV on Friday the populist leader said gay people in power were hiding their sexual orientation, which potentially makes them “dependent on people who have secret recordings of their activities.
“I do not understand why homosexuals in power hide. Maybe they consider this something shameful,” the MP said, noting that “as free people they march on the squares” and “want to be seen”.
The MP mused that, by being open to blackmail, it could even “lead us to war with Russia”.
Mareshki, who owns chains of low-cost pharmacies and petrol stations, entered parliament for the first time at the snap election in March.

Nigerian writer Chibuihe Obi allegedly kidnapped for writing about queerphobia

Nigerian writer Chibuihe Obi allegedly kidnapped for writing about queerphobia
- On 17 May, Nigerian writer, poet, and photographer Chibuihe Obi published an essay for Brittle Paper about the queerphobia he experienced in Nigeria. Since then, Obi has gone missing. He was last heard from on 1 June.
According to a Facebook post, those close with Obi believe he was kidnapped by a group of ‘homophobic thieves.’
The group allegedly responsible for the kidnapping is also targeting other LGBTI writers, threatening to ‘hunt them down and kill them.’
A friend who did not wish to be named told GSN, ‘The last time a friend of mine spoke with him, he was in Umuahia where his mother lives. But someone said he was in Owerri on 1 June, the day we lost contact with him. This second info is speculation; we use it because nobody knew his movement for sure.’
He said that the kidnappers had contacted several people connected with Obi. ‘Three of those people happened to be with us when they got the messages – that’s when we knew what had happened. Half of their messages are homophobic, death threats, promises to hunt down other queer writers.’

Malaysia offers up to $1000 for best 'gay prevention' video
The Malaysian government is offering cash prizes of up to $1,000 for the best videos explaining how to “prevent” homosexuality, according to a competition launched on the health ministry’s website.
Activists on Saturday said the move will further spread fear among Malaysia’s LGBT community, as conservative attitudes chip away at the Muslim-majority nation’s one-time reputation for moderation and tolerance.
Contestants are invited to submit a video clip addressing various categories including gayness or “gender confusion”, and offering suggestions as to how these could be “prevented or controlled”.
