The sixteenth edition of the Rainbow Map has been published, ranking European countries based on developments in LGBTQIA+ civil rights

The Rainbow Map is published less than 24 hours after the LGBTQIA+ Survey III report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights. A report that made it clear that more than two-thirds of respondents have been victims of hate statements because of their sexual orientation, and there has also been an increase in acts of violence, compared to the last survey in 2019.

Between shadows and lights, several European nations have made several advances in protecting the civil rights of LGBTQIA+ people, such as Germany, Estonia, Liechtenstein and Greece.

According to ILGA-Europe Executive Director Chaber: “The European Union must pay close attention not only to the increase in political hate speech against LGBTQIA+ people, but also to new instruments of oppression, such as Russia’s criminalization of an entire segment of the country’s population. Efforts to divide and distract from established authoritarian regimes are spreading further to other European countries, at a time when elections could push Europe into the hands of leaders who wish to shape a radical and anti-democratic right-wing European Union. Europe needs stronger laws and policies to protect LGBTQIA+ people. Without them, we cannot talk about security, the rule of law and democracy.”

REDEMPTION DAYS: The United States. A group of friends and an association that cultivates ethnic discrimination, racial superiority, and the fight against any diversity as essential pillars of its doctrine. These are the main elements of this multi-faceted novel, at times raw and hard, far from pity and useless turns of phrase, in which extreme fanaticism leads a father to desire the evil of his homosexual son, to the point of acting personally for the annihilation of this inclination. Yet “REDEMPTION DAYS” is not a novel that takes away space for hope, the same feeling that will take possession of the protagonist’s page after page, directing them to arrive very differently from the departure, a goal in which ideas change, the true virtues emerge, evil and perversions are finally removed, to achieve so, in different ways, their individual redemption.
