Brasil - Bolsonaro Strips LGBT Rights On His First Day In Office

Bolsonaro’s actions against the LGBT community and other minorities come as no surprise, and it was literally one of his very first actions after his Inauguration.

The ‘proud homophobe’ used his first day in office to sign the orders. They will affect the LGBT community, indigenous groups and descendants of slaves.

He has previously said he would rather have a ‘dead son rather than a gay son’. He also said parents should beat their children back to being ‘normal’ if they suspected them of being gay.

LGBT activist Symmy Larrat told Associated Press that she is not hopeful the Bolsonaro government will treat the community fairly.
The Human Rights Ministry discussed our concerns at a body called Secretariat of Promotion and Defense of Human Rights. That body just disappeared, just like that.
