Exuberant people celebrating on the street, colorful costumes, kisses, and holding hands and above all the rainbow flag blows. This is what it looks like in the meantime when Gay Pride (also known as CSD in Germany) is celebrated in the big cities of Europe and all around the world. However, it has not always been that easy for the LGBTQ+ community to live out and celebrate their love, affection, and identity. Until then, it was a long and certainly not an easy journey (although the fight for equality isn't over yet either).On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of

Coming Out – Karl’s story of finding his true self. Today, I am 36 years old living together with the man of my life and our tomcat in Amsterdam. I am having a rainbow family with two children together with three wonderful human beings. My parents are proud of who I am, they love and appreciate my partner and support me in anything I am doing. I have a gay brother whom I love very much. And I can see a lot of this wonderful world while supporting LGBTQ+ that are not as blessed as I am with love. But

In addition to the two genders, male and female, Cambodia’s national language Khmer also knows the third gender kteuy, which describes a person who has the physical characteristics of one gender but the behavior of the other.

Love, our world needs more love. For us, Valentine’s Day on February 14th is the best day to remember how important it is to show your love to the people you hold most dear. It is about love for another human being and to accept, to respect and to embrace its uniqueness. We are happy to share some of our gay love moments from our travels with you on a day that is made for love, romance and time together. If you don’t have a present for your girlfriend, boyfriend or simply the person you love, just give him or

It all depends on the throwing technique. Turning around one’s own axis and then throw it out of the shoulder using the whole bodyweight. And then the handbag flies into the loud cheering audience disappearing between the people. Just a few meters away from it a whistle marks the start signal. The participants run towards the finish line more or less safe on spectacularly high heels.

Lebanon has a reputation in the Middle East for being the most liberal of all countries when it comes to homosexuality, transgender and the LGBTQ + community in general. For example, in 2017, Lebanon was the first country in the Arab world where gay pride events (such as the Beirut Pride) took place. At least 4,000 people took part in it at the time. Already in the years before, various NGOs, such as Proud Lebanon and Helem, organized public LGBTQ + events.

For a long time I’ve been struggling with what’s the best and safest way to share our rainbow family happiness with you and the world. We want to protect our families and of course our children. The main motivation for this article, my outing as a daddy, was the possibility to answer the many questions from family and friends, and to support more rainbow families with the desire to have children. As you can imagine, after a private Facebook post of an ultrasound scan, we received countless messages from friends and family members who either simply came to us curiously

A kiss and a murder. This is how recent events in Russia can be summarized in the LGBTQ+ community. Renowned LGBTQ+ activist Yelena Grigoriyeva was found dead in St. Petersburg in mid-July, with several stab wounds in the chest and signs of strangulation. Previously, Grigoriyeva had received several death threats after her name appeared on a list of a now-blocked website that had hunted down sexual minorities and their supporters.

Everyone knows them because in the LGBTQ+ community they almost have a legendary status. The following people have actively campaigned for gay and lesbian equality fought for LGBTQ+ rights and, in a very special way, ensured that attention could be drawn to change the perception of the lesbian, gay, trans and queer lives. Additional to the well-known LGBTQ+ activists who had a significant impact on the LGBTQ+ history, gay icons dedicated parts of their lives and work to support a good cause, for example on gay pride events. We would like to introduce you to 12 of the most important
