Gay news; Gay Prides in Rio and Taipeh, anti-gay airline SkyWest/Delta, gays not welcome in Vatican City

3 11 2009

This weekend saw two of the last Gay Prides of the year, in Rio and Taiwan. The people in attendance could not have been more different, 1 million in Rio and 25.000 in Taipeh. In Rio the mayor promised to spent more money then this years 100.000 dollars in Pride for its 15th year anniversary. The revenue for the city is 45 million, so a little more would not hurt!

The airlines SkyWest and Delta are being accused of anti-gay discrimination and might be sued. A man who works for SkyWest and was married to his partner in California during the time it was legal, is pissed because his partner does not get the same free fares as heterosexual spouses. SkyWest has refused comment so far but they better step up to the plate. It’s just absurd that in a job area with so many gay employees there would still be discrimination.

An area where it is not a big surprise that gays are discriminated is Vatican City. But the comments of bishop Janusz Kaleta are even for those standard pretty harsh. He thinks gays should not be allowed in Vatican City. Gays coming there is a provocation and an abuse of the place. Try to go to a mosque when you are not a Muslim(since when is that hard, btw???) he says and it’s unethical. What about gays that are religious, mr Kaleta?? The churches should be happy with everyone they can get their hands on in these times
