My cycle is ending here, thanks for everything.
Today is a very special day for the Brazilians, a day where our brand really was registered before the law, a day where our days of struggle have become glory days. Today, our love must be shared on social networks, on the streets, in our homes. Today is the day where homophobia has officially become a crime in Brazil.
With the decision of the Federal Supreme Court to frame homophobia and transphobia in racism, Brazil became the 43rd country to criminalize practices, according to the report "State Sponsored Homophobia", prepared by the International Lesbian, Gay and Lesbian Association , Bisexual, Transgender and Intersexual.
The trial on the case began in February and was completed on Thursday (13). Of the 11 ministers, eight voted in favor of criminalization. Three others against. In all, there were six sessions devoted to the analysis of the theme.
- "practicing, inducing or inciting discrimination or prejudice" because of the person's sexual orientation may be considered a crime;
- the penalty will be one to three years, plus a fine;
- if there is widespread dissemination of a homophobic act in the media, as publication in a social network, the penalty will be two to five years, in addition to a fine;
CONGRATULATIONS FOR US BRAZILIANS! THE NEW ERA IS HAPPENING!
