Dengue-epidemic

18 07 2010

Just when me and my bf have made plans to go to the Caribbean, there is fear for the biggest dengue-epidemic in years. Already 17000 people have been infected and the rain season started early this years so there will be lots more. There is no treatment for dengue-fever except drinking and waiting till the fever with headache and muscle pain will go away. Scary.

Gay news, St. Eustatius wants no gay marriage just dutch millions, to be gay= death ok in Wyoming, Arabic gay magazine shocks Morocco

St. Eustatius is since 2006 a “special county” of the Netherlands. The Caribbean Island does want to get the advantages of that with money(millions) etc, but does not want certain dutch laws to be applied there. So no euthanasia, abortion or gay marriage. Now they wanna go to the UN to make sure they do not have to follow the dutch rules. I say, let them take care of themselves.

Casper, Wyoming homeowner Chris Turnbull has an anti-gay Leviticus sign on his fence that reads, To Be Gay = Death. Hundreds of students have to walk past this sign every day ¬†and officials asked him to remove it but he does not have to because it’s freedom of speech. According to him he does not do it out of spite. Yeah right.

A gay magazine called Mithly, meaning gay or like me, was secretly printed in the capital of Morocco, Rabat earlier this month. It is coming out on the internet as well as paper so it can be read by as many people as possible. Conservative Islamic people in parliament are already asking for arrest of the producers. According to them they should be treated the same as terrorists. I think it is great and very brave people started this magazine.
