Gayman betrays his community needs-Spouse redefine

Posted August 31st 2012

When we have a constitution that speaks to gender equality in its preamble as well as inalienable rights,  yet, could have religious institution dictate the fundamental rights and freedoms in practice. One must be concern that while we elect public officials to lead, we have  obsessed religious institutions who do not want any redefinition of the word spouse that would allow persons, be it friends, roommates, sweethearts, etc. to be able to jointly have loans or advance their economic interests.

The tooth about UNIBAM founder’s beating now a UN matter?
Caleb Orozco From our research, it appears to be the first such case on human rights; but the beating of Caleb Orozco, the president of UNIBAM, has been elevated to the United Nations. The UN Special Rapporteurs on the promotion and protection on freedom of expression and on the situation of human rights defenders have both written to the government seeking answers on the incident. Orozco was allegedly attacked on George Street on February eighth. At the time it was reported that he was threatened by men shouting anti-gay remarks and that one of them threw a beer bottle at him. The bottle hit him in the face and he suffered a broken tooth. In the four-page document dated February twenty-ninth, the UN’s Human Rights Council is expressing concern that the alleged attack may be related to Orozco’s work in advocating for LGBTI rights. Specifically, the government is asked to resp…
