David Cameron: ‘The Pride festival is an excellent opportunity to bring people from different communities together’

 

David Cameron has given his backing to this weekend’s Brighton Pride and says “I am proud of this country’s record of advancing” LGBT equality.

In his message of support, the Prime Minister said: “I am, once again, delighted to offer my support to Pride Brighton & Hove. It is a fantastic celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T) community and its contribution to the diversity and vibrancy of Brighton and Hove.

“I am proud of this country’s record of advancing LGB&T equality and rights. It was a truly momentous occasion seeing the first same-sex couples getting married on 29 March, including those marriages that took place in Brighton that weekend.”

Mr Cameron continued: “The Pride festival is an excellent opportunity to bring people from different communities together to enjoy not only a colourful and entertaining day out but a whole programme of cultural, social and sporting events.

“These events are a great way to enhance community dialogue and to remind ourselves of the progress towards equality made in this country. The LGB&T Pride events that take place across the UK each year help to show why the UK continues to be recognised as number one in Europe on LGB&T equality and rights.”

He added: “I would like to send my congratulations to the organisers and volunteers for their efforts in co-ordinating Pride Brighton & Hove 2014 and wish everyone attending the very best for a happy and successful event.”

Labour leader Ed Miliband has recorded a video for the festival.

He said: “Brighton and Hove is a fantastic city, and Pride is a moment where we see it in its great diversity, its tolerance and its celebration of equality.”

Brighton Pride is taking place this weekend. The main parade and Preston Park event is on Saturday.

The parade through the city begins at 11am from Madeira Drive

White House Knocks Benetton Ad Showing Obama Kissing Foes

*The White House has weighed in on a provocative new ad campaign by Italian clothing-maker Benetton that includes the unauthorized use of President Obama’s likeness – which is seen kissing two traditional foes of the United States: Chinese President Hu Jintao and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

The photoshopped images, which have appeared on posters and in storefronts around the world, is two of several in the company’s “Unhate” campaign that features world leaders locking lips with adversaries, often of the same sex.

The Obama administration finally released a statement on the matter.

“The White House has a longstanding policy disapproving of the use of the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes,” said White House spokesman Eric Schultz in an email. Schultz declined to say whether the administration has contacted Benetton to ask the company to take down the Obama images.

Benetton withdrew an image of Pope Benedict XVI and  a top Egyptian imam kissing after the Vatican threatened to sue, according to the Associated Press.

The campaign also features fictitious depictions of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu kissing Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel touching lips.

In January 2010, the White House appealed to the Weatherproof Garment Company to take down a Times Square billboard that featured a photo of Obama in one of the company’s jackets. The company later complied.

Cannibalism a lifestyle choice among secular intellectuals in Germany ?

Defendant part of big cannibal scene, detective tells court

Luke Harding in Berlin

Tuesday 9 December 2003 02.11 GMT

The detective who investigated Germany’s infamous cannibal case told a court yesterday that he had stumbled upon a vast cannibal scene in Germany – involving several dentists and other professionals.

Giving evidence in the trial of Armin Meiwes, the 42-year-old computer expert who killed and ate another man, federal investigator Wilfried Fehl yesterday said the gruesome case was not an isolated one.

His officers had discovered a flourishing cannibal scene in Germany, he said, involving middle-class professionals, as well as manual workers. “We are talking about dentists, teachers, cooks, government officials and handymen,” he told the court, during the second day of Mr Meiwes’ trial for murder.

He added: “These are people who come from the middle reaches of society.”

Mr Fehl said that despite their endeavours German detectives had not been yet able to track down any more cannibal victims, following the arrest of Mr Meiwes last December. Mr Meiwes’s act was “a thing” that was “practically unimaginable” even for “experienced criminologists” like him, he admitted.

“It leads us to where thinking stops,” he said. Earlier, the court heard how on March 10, 2001 the computer expert stabbed, fried and then digested Bernd Brandes, a 43-year-old Berlin engineer he met through the internet. Mr Brandes travelled by train to Mr Meiwes’ rambling timbered farmhouse in the German town of Rotenburg after answering an advert requesting “people for slaughter”.

Before the killing, he agreed to have his penis cut off – which both men tried to eat.

Yesterday a relaxed, smiling Mr Meiwes said that it was wrong to describe his crime as murder because his victim had agreed to be killed.

He was merely guilty of “mercy killing” or “assisted suicide”, he said, adding: “I accept this is taboo. But I can justify what I did to God and the world.”

The computer expert said his biggest regret was that he hadn’t got to know his victim better before stabbing him to death in the early hours of the morning. “I didn’t want to kill or hurt anybody,” he said.

Following his arrest, detectives discovered an email from Mr Meiwes to a friend, in which he confessed he hoped to find another “victim” soon – because “flesh is everything.”

A detective who interviewed Mr Meiwes after he was caught said he appeared to have few regrets. He was even proud of his crime.

The detective added: “He was happy to be able to tell someone his story.” Yesterday, the judge hearing the case ordered the press and public to leave court so that a gruesome video made by Mr Meiwes of the killing could be shown. The video, lasting four and a half hours, showed the mutilation, death and slaughter of the victim, the judge Volker Mütze explained, as well as a sexual offence. Finishing his testimony yesterday, Mr Meiwes pointed out that after stabbing Mr Brandes he hadn’t killed anybody else. He added, however: “I would have done, though, if the opportunity had presented itself.”

The trial continues.

Scat and other activities of the intellectually superior secularists.

 

http://www.hardcell.org.uk/en/playroom/scat/

SCAT

Also known in personal ads and internet profiles as:

  • brown
  • dirty (as in ‘into dirty’)

Hanky code

Brown worn:

  • on the left (wants to dump on you)
  • on the right (wants to be dumped on).

What is scat?

Scat involves playing with shit, smearing it on your or his body, and sometimes eating it. It can also mean just getting off on seeing another guy dump his load.

‘Farming’ is taking shit from public toilets to play with.

What’s the attraction?

Taboos around cleanliness couldn’t be more powerfully broken by shit play: it’s everything we’ve been told not to do since childhood.

Men can be drawn to scat precisely because it provokes such a strong negative reaction in others. Lovers of scat might get a kick from stepping over what for most people is the line between what’s OK and what’s too extreme. Scat is perhaps the ultimate in sex without limits or inhibitions.

Privately we’re often fascinated by our own bowel movements and excrement. Scat lets men explore and share this interest and enjoy a special bond with other lovers of shit.

For scat fans shit can excite all the senses with its warmth, texture, smell, colour and possibly taste. Just like contact with the intimate body fluids of cum, spit or piss, sex involving shit can be a sign of intense closeness as someone is offering something that’s come from deep inside them. And in an intense power play scene, nothing is more symbolic of degradation, humiliation and control than exposure to faeces.

Record highs of sexually transmitted infections in UK’s MSM

The UK is facing a surge in sexually transmitted infections among men who have sex with men, with record highs in infections of gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and HIV. Tony Kirby reports.

Men who have sex with men (MSM) in the UK are experiencing record- high diagnosis rates for various sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, and HIV. Data from Public Health England (PHE) showing these increases were recently presented at the conference Sex, Drugs, and MSM in Birmingham, UK (Nov 1), convened by the British Society for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) after concerns about an STI crisis in UK’s MSM.

In 2012, there were around 36000 STI diagnoses in MSM in sexual health clinics in England— the location where most MSM are tested. This figure includes chlamydia (8500 cases), gonorrhoea (10800 cases), syphilis (2100 cases), herpes (1400 cases), and genital warts (3500 cases). Since 2008, STI diagnoses in MSM have risen sharply, especially gonorrhoea diagnoses, which have trebled. There were 3250 new HIV diagnoses in UK MSM, an all time high, and a 10% increase on the 2960 new diagnoses in MSM in 2011. In 2012, an estimated

7300 MSM were living with HIV but unaware of their infection compared with 34000 MSM living with a diagnosed HIV infection. All of these infections are over-represented among the UK’s MSM population, with 51% of new diagnoses of HIV occurring in MSM, along with 72% of syphilis, 42% of all gonorrhoea, and 9% of all chlamydia diagnoses.

“Some of the increase in new diagnoses of various infections are due to increased and improved testing, for gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and HIV”, says Gwenda Hughes, Head of the STI section at PHE’s Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance and Control,London,UK.“However,there have also been rises in diagnosis rates for other STIs such as syphilis where there have been no changes in testing practice. This suggests that the rises in STIs are due partly to ongoing risky sexual behaviours.”

The number of MSM tested for HIV in 2012 increased by 13% (from 64 270 in 2011 to 72 710) in England and by 19% (from 28 640 to 34 000) in London, the number tested for other STIs through sexual health screens increased by 16% (from 85 322 to 99171) in England and by 21% (from 39 765 to 48 021) in London, explaining part of the increases. Also, in early 2010 nucleic acid amplification tests were validated for testing for gonorrhoea and chlamydia at extragenital sites—namely the throat and rectum—meaning that many people who had the conditions only at these sites and were asymptomatic are now being diagnosed. But the trebling  in gonorrhoea diagnoses in MSM from 2008–12 and the more than two- fold increase in chlamydia diagnoses in the same period suggests that ongoing, increased transmission rates are a huge problem, stretching sexual health clinics in certain locations, especially London, to their limits.

There are also some emerging STI problems in the UK. Lympho- granuloma venereum (LGV) is caused by a specific strain of chlamydia that causes more severe symptoms and requires a longer course of treatment than other strains. In the past 10 years, cases of LGV have risen substantially, with 2397 in the UK since 2003, of which 99% were in MSM, and 54% were in London. HIV co-infection was present in 82% of cases, the hepatitis C infection in 20% of cases. There was a rapid rise in cases during 2009, and 56% of all reported cases have been diagnosedsince2010.Bycomparing cases during the so called surge period from 2009 with earlier cases, experts from PHE were able to determine that MSM more recently infected with LGV were more likely to have attended group sex parties, to have shared sex toys, and to be HIV positive. “This is suggestive of an increasing number of HIV-positive MSM in the UK engaging in high-risk sexual behaviour”, says Hughes. A PHE initiative in 2010 to promote better hygiene practices and safer sex, including in gay saunas, has probably helped bring down new infection rates of LGV from their 2010 peak.

Another relative newcomer to the STI scene is Shigella flexneri, a gastrointestinal infection spread by faecal–oral contact that can cause serious episodes of diarrhoea, fever, and other symptoms. Although data about sexual orientation are not routinely collected for cases of Shigella flexneri, the estimated number of sexually acquired cases in MSM in England and Wales has risen from 43 in 2009 to 172 in 2012. 224 cases have been reported so far in 2013. A PHE investigation of 34 MSM infected by Shigella showed that 59% were HIV positive, 76% had used recreational drugs, and, of these, 30% had injected them. Injecting was a new behaviour for almost all of those who reported it. Most men interviewed had met their partners online, through smartphone apps, or at private sex parties, and sex- on-premises venues such as saunas.

“The issues behind the rise in STIs in the UK are complex and multifactorial”, saysDavidAsboe,Chairofboththe BASHH MSM special interest group and theBritishHIVAssociation.“Firstly,it is important to remember that rates of STIs, particularly gonorrhoea and syphilis, were high in the 1970s and 80s. They dropped because of profound changesinsexualbehaviour,including reduced numbers of sexual partners, and increased use of condoms, directlyduetoHIV/AIDS.Whilesome of the data are conflicting, I have no doubt that a significant proportion of increases in STIs and HIV in MSM since 2000 relate to a reversal of these changes in sexual behaviour due to the fact HIV is now treatable and that AIDS and death related to HIV are rare.”

Sexual health surveys in London have shown that the proportion of MSM engaging in sex without condoms has increased from 29% to 47% over the 12 years from 1996 to 2008 (when the survey was last done).

The rise in gonorrhoea is a particular worry since antibiotic resistance to this infection has been increasing worldwide. In 2011, the UK changed treatment guidelines because reduced susceptibility to cefixime, the front-line therapy at that time, had increased beyond 5% of cases. This trend has reversed following the switch to the new front-line regimen, ceftriaxone and azithromycin. “This is only a reprieve”, warns Hughes. “History has shown that gonorrhoea is an infection that quickly develops resistance to new treatments. We do need new treatments but we should also investigate whether we can tailor treatments for specific population groups using existing drugs, to help keep them useful drugs for longer. We also need to improve awareness among MSM that this could become an infection that might not be so easy to treat in future, and that using condoms when having sex can greatly reduce your risk of getting infected.”

The UK is by no means unique among developed countries in terms of its STI epidemic in MSM. At the recent Australasian HIV and Sexual Health Conferences in Darwin, Australia, experts announced that 1253 new HIV diagnoses were recorded in Australia in 2012. This prevalence was the highest for 20 years, 853 of which were in MSM, an 8% rise on the total of 803 recorded in 2011. Cases of gonorrohoea increased by 91% between 2008–12 in all men, compared with 54% in women, whereas syphilis cases increased by 22% in all men from 2011 to 2012 compared with a 9% increase in women. LGV and Shigella are not currently notifiable STIs in Australia.

“Both chlamydia and gonorrhoea are increasing substantially in Australia, although not by the extraordinarily large percentage seen in the UK since 2008”, says Andrew Grulich, Head of the HIV Epidemiology and Prevention Program at the Kirby Institute (University of New South Wales, Australia). “For chlamydia, the increase is in men and women, whereas in gonorrhoea, the increase is largely in men, mostly MSM. Some of this increase is known to be related to increased testing rates using more accuratediagnostictests.Nevertheless, at least some of the increase is real, meaning from increased transmission.”

Back in England, PHE has established an expert group to address some of the health risks posed by the interplaybetweendruguseandsexual behaviours, especially in relation to

STI and blood-borne viruses, and to consider the kinds of services that are needed. Hughes believes clinics such asthe56DeanStreetClinicinSoho, London (which includes CODE, the AntidoteSubstanceMisuseServiceat LondonFriend,aLesbianGayBisexual and Transgender health and wellbeing charity) and the Club Drug Clinic at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London, are vital to help deal with the crossover between STIs and drug use.

PHE are attempting pilots in sexual health clinics nationwide to ascertain drug use in MSM attending health screens, which could help improve understanding of the relation between unsafe sex and drug use. “More must be done to promote safer sexual behaviour and to improve sexual health screening for MSM, including regular HIV testing”, she concludes. Along with other experts across Europe, Hughes is hopeful that the recent European HIV Testing Week (Nov 22–29), has encouraged more MSM to come forward for testing for HIV and other STIs, since earlier diagnosis and treatment is one of the most important steps in slowing and eventually reversing the STI epidemic.

UK will warn anti-gay nations: ‘You need to change’

 

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will tell the world that the UK will bring up gay rights in every meeting and press governments around the world to change their homophobic laws

23 JULY 2014 | BY JOE MORGAN

The UK government will deliver a stark warning to homophobic nations in the Commonwealth, saying it will pressure countries to change their anti-gay laws.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will announce at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games the UK will fight for gay rights around the world.

Out of 53 countries in the Commonwealth, 42 of them criminalize homosexuality.

In his speech at Pride House, a space set up to promote diversity at the Games, the Liberal Democrat leader will say the Commonwealth core values are ‘clear’.

It states: ‘We are committed to equality and respect for the protection and promotion of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights.’

Clegg is expected to say: ‘We’ve come a long way in this country towards achieving the genuine equality that LGBT people have always wanted and deserved.

‘This includes last year’s landmark equal marriage reform. Yet there’s still a huge amount to be done across the world.

‘As we celebrate the bravery of Olympians who have come out – Tom Daley, Ian Thorpe or Nicola Adams for example – some countries are taking backward steps; putting their LGBT Olympians so far back in the closet that they can’t ever imagine their day in the open.

‘We can’t dictate how other nations behave but we can promote the principles we believe in – of a fair and open society both in the UK and abroad.

He will continue: ‘That is why my colleague Lynne Featherstone is leading an LGBT policy review, which was set up in response to the passage of Uganda’s new and draconian anti-homosexuality law.

‘When it’s published, I hope it will help us hardwire LGBT rights into our entire human rights agenda – through every bilateral meeting, every multilateral relationship, and every corner of the world.

‘The message is clear: LGBT rights are human rights. So we need LGBT protections to be a part of anti-discrimination laws everywhere.

‘This means absolutely continuing to support LGBT campaigners on the ground around the world – they are the key to change in their local communities and countries.

‘It means talking to multi-national businesses to encourage them to make the business case against homophobia.

‘Love is the same – whichever village, town, city, country or continent you live in. It binds people together and makes communities stronger.

‘I will continue to say that to all those people in power, or not, who seek to deny these freedoms to others across the world.

‘I believe in the principle that you should leave no one behind – regardless of race, gender, age, creed, or sexual orientation.’
