Opposition To "promotion of Homosexuality"

"Promotion of homosexuality" is a group of behaviours believed by some gay rights opponents to be carried out in media, public places etc.

In the UK Section 28 of the 1988 Local Government Act banned "promotion of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship" by local government employees in the course of their duties. The act was aimed to prevent the "promotion of homosexuality" in schools. It was later repealed by the Conservative government, which also issued an apology to LGBT people for act. This promotion is opposed by Morocco. See also Article 200 section of the Penal Code of Romania and the proposed Anti-Homosexuality Bill for similar such proscriptions.

Lithuania put in place a similar such ban in June 16, 2009 amid protests by gay rights groups. LGBT rights groups stated that it would be taken to the European Court of Human Rights for violation of the EU Human rights laws.

Famous quotes containing the words opposition to, opposition and/or promotion:

    When feminism does not explicitly oppose racism, and when antiracism does not incorporate opposition to patriarchy, race and gender politics often end up being antagonistic to each other and both interests lose.
    Kimberly Crenshaw (b. 1959)

    To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death freely chosen, death at the right time, brightly and cheerfully accomplished amid children and witnesses: then a real farewell is still possible, as the one who is taking leave is still there; also a real estimate of what one has wished, drawing the sum of one’s life—all in opposition to the wretched and revolting comedy that Christianity has made of the hour of death.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I am asked if I would not be gratified if my friends would procure me promotion to a brigadier-generalship. My feeling is that I would rather be one of the good colonels than one of the poor generals. The colonel of a regiment has one of the most agreeable positions in the service, and one of the most useful. “A good colonel makes a good regiment,” is an axiom.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
