‘Unbreakable’ LGBT rainbow installation unveiled in Warsaw after far-Right attacks:

An update to one of our articles:

Gay rights groups in Poland have unveiled a new and “unbreakable” rainbow installation in Warsaw to replace the original one that suffered repeated attacks from far-Right groups.

The new rainbow, which lights up a busy intersection in the city, is formed by a water hologram, with light bouncing off a curtain of vapour.

As light and water cannot be defaced in the same way as a solid structure, its creators hope it will not suffer the fate of its predecessor and will become “an unbreakable symbol of love, peace, LGBT rights and equality.”

For some context to this news, read this article.

Dwayne Jones and the Dangers of Tragedy Tourism:

Dwayne Jones was a transgender woman who lived in Jamaica, a country Times dubbed “The Most Homophobic Place on Earth” in 2006, and has since then been the sight of many violent homophobic and transphobic murders and mob killings. When researching her story, it can feel at first like a wide display of the homophobia and transphobia in the country. She dropped out of school because of bullying, and her father kicked her out of the family home at the age of fourteen because of her “effeminate” behaviour. She was then run out of town by the neighborhood, including said father.

The Complex and Controversial Brenda Fassie

The Complex and Controversial Brenda Fassie:

Brenda Fassie was what many of us would refer to as a “child star.” She knew that she wanted to be a singer from a very young age and she began pursuing that dream as soon as she could. She was in many singing groups before she gained real popularity with her band, Brenda and the Big Dudes. Their song, “The Weekend Special,” sold enough records to seal her fate as one of the most popular musicians in South Africa at the time. To say she only went up from there would be an oversimplification of a very complicated life because while she did continue to garner fame and awards, her personal life was filled with more than her fair share of struggles.
