With a poster campaign, the travesty artists of the group ‘Travestie für Deutschland (TFD)’ protest against the so-called ‘Homo Cure’. Seven posters with well-known Berlin travesty artists and drag queens have been published on the Internet, sending a clear message, such as “Why fix what is not broken.” The impetus for the action was given by recent recommendations by Protestant Free Churches on homosexual persons to be treated on the basis of their sexual orientation. With its campaign of a protest poster campaign fighting Homo cure, the satirical group wants to draw attention to the conversion therapies that are still not forbidden in Germany. More about this here on Couple of Men.
Mit einer Plakataktion protestieren die Travestiekünstler*innen der Gruppe Travestie für Deutschland (TFD) gegen die sogenannte ‚Homo-Heilung‘. Im Internet wurden dazu sieben Poster mit bekannten Berliner Travestiekünstler*innen und Dragqueens veröffentlicht, die eine klare Botschaft senden, wie etwa „Warum reparieren, was nicht kaputt ist“. Den Anstoß zu der Aktion gaben kürzliche Empfehlungen evangelischer Freikirchen an homosexuelle Personen, sich aufgrund ihrer sexuellen Orientierung therapieren zu lassen. Mit ihrer Kampagne der Protest-Plakat-Aktion gegen Homo-Heilung will die Satiregruppe auf die in Deutschland immer noch nicht verbotenen Konversionstherapien aufmerksam machen.
