Greece has legalised same-sex marriage in a landslide vote with 176 MPs supporting the measure and 76 opposing it. There were 2 formal abstentions and 46 others who did not turn up to vote, but in the 300 member chamber 176 would have been a winning total whoever else had shown their face. They also voted to allow same-sex couples to adopt. The move was announced a month ago and the PM observed that, “(this) reform makes the lives of several of our fellow citizens better, without taking away anything from the lives of the many.” The post Greek Parliament backs same-sex marriage overwhelmingly ..read more

Conversion: Bishop Bashes Bis but the Bill Continues

The House of Lords gave its second reading to Lib Dem Baroness Burt’s bill on Conversion Therapy this morning. As so often in such debates what was presented was a mixture of wisdom, compassion, delusion and malicious intent. And once in a while, an obvious lie that parliamentary protocol means no-one in the chamber can state to be such. Crossbencher (kind of an Independent, a peer not formally aligned to any party) Lord Curry of Kirkharle for example opined that conversion is just fine because it’s what Christians seek to do to others. Saul’s experience on the road to Damascus is a wonderful ..read more

The Pope has given an interview to an Italian newspaper where he called out the hypocrisy of much of the Catholic Church over LGBT rights. In an interview with Italian newspaper La Stampa he compared the attitudes of “people who feel they are superior” especially in the light of his recent “Fiducia Supplicans” statement on the meanings of blessings. “No one is scandalised if I give my blessing to an entrepreneur who perhaps exploits people: and this is a very serious sin. While they are scandalised if I give it to a homosexual,” he explains. “This is hypocrisy!” He clarifies how far he is, and ..read more

Britain’s biggest LGBT phone helpline Switchboard has given itself a new look and a new website, to mark and celebrate its 50th Birthday.

Conversion Bills: Lords moves into the lead

There are two bills making their way through Westminster that each might – might – outlaw conversion therapy. They are both from the opposition, one from Labour and one from the Liberal Democrats. Both are Private Members’ Bills, so they are not guaranteed enough debate time to become law, though as the Lords bill was first in the PMB ballot it stands a much better than average chance. Both are also inclusive of the LGBT spectrum challenging the coercive practice whether used about sexuality or gender identity. The Lords bill from Baroness Burt (Lib Dem) was introduced first (their PMB ballot ..read more

We mostly cover the “big stuff” in BCN – like bi events, changes to law that particularly affect bi people, new research and so forth. But a lot of bi news is not “real news” but gossip or social media comments from people in the public eye. Those don’t change laws but they do, albeit not as often as we might like, change hearts and minds. Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong talked to People about his role as a bi icon, having come out back in the 90s when out bi men were so much rarer in the public eye. “It’s way more complex now, as far as sexuality. You’re like, ‘Wow, we’ve really come a ..read more
