Human Rights Watch says the men were charged with “lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex”. Ugh.
Never forget: When the concentration camps were liberated in WW2, the Queer people who had survived the camps were put in prison, and forced to carry out their sentences for being queer.

Just sharing this in case any of my followers would be interested in applying.
Please signal boost, this could be a fantastic opportunity for someone.
Reblogging again with a link because the link above doesn’t seem to work. They’re looking for a trans woman between around 20-40 (non-actors with the confidence to audition welcome, as well as those with acting experience), and it’s one episode of a new 8 part series by Russell T Davies, to be filmed between 9th June and 8th July in Manchester, England.
QTIPOC Brighton are deeply unhappy to hear that the racial slur ‘n*****’ was used in a speech by a member of The Clare Project at this year’s IDAHOBIT event. We are disturbed that the violence of racist language was deemed appropriate while challenging the violence of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. For people of colour and others in attendance this would have created a deeply unsafe environment, and sends the message that the Brighton LGBT community are not particularly concerned about the inclusion or safety of people of colour who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans*.
QTIPOC Brighton feels a public apology from both The Clare Project and the organisers of IDAHOBIT is needed, along with a commitment to ensuring future IDAHOBIT events are anti-racist and inclusive in their organisation and delivery.
