One year before the World Cup in Qatar, the lesbian and gay association Germany (LSD) has demanded a clear position to the discriminated rights of the LGBTQIA + community in the Golf Emirate from the German Football Association and throughout the company.
Pose does not show up by just standing on the football field. Attitude is shown in the fact that you are stopped, and no territory enters a minefield overlooking the human rights. I expect from DFB more than just a rainbow armband, said Alfonso Partisan from the LSD Federal Board to the news portal Watson (Wednesday).
LGBT is the English abbreviation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. Often the variants LGBTQ, LGBTQI or LGBTQIA + are also used. Each letter stands for its own sex identity or sexual orientation.
In the World Cup host country Qatar, the LGBTQIA + community has no rights, is complained in the statement. Whoever makes his homosexuality public, can therefore be punished with up to seven years in prison. After Sharia law, homosexual Muslims in Qatar even the death penalty.
Therefore, Partisan appeals straight to the people outside the LGBTQIA + community, exactly. For human rights all go to us and are a topic for the entire society and not only of supposed minorities.
To improve the location of the LGBTQIA + community in Qatar, Partisan sees only one solution: the Boycott of the World Cup tournament. We have to turn the regime in Qatar the money cock. We have the choice: Do not turn on, do not go, do not spend money. And all together, not just the LGBT IQ + community.
