Pride Toronto in serious debt; Amendments to India Transgender Bill rejected; Gay couple denied children because one is not out; African lesbian photographer knighted; Russell Tovey premieres as gay superhero, The Ray.
Pride Toronto has declared itself almost half a million dollars in debt after wiping out almost $850,000 which it held in reserve. The debt is attributed to staff turnover, missed grant application deadlines and loss of sponsorship & sales income.
India’s Ministry of Social Justice has rejected all recommendations by a parliamentary committee on its Transgender Persons Bill. Instead they’ll support the unamended bill which criminalises begging and denies the right to self-determination.
A doctor and his partner in Pretoria have been denied permission to conceive a child through surrogacy because he is still in the closet. Although the couple have been together 10 years, the judge was also concerned that they still do not live together.
Photographer, Zaneli Muholi has been knighted by the French ambassador to South Africa. Muholi received the Chevalier des Arts medal at a ceremony on Tuesday night, for her work, raising awareness of LGBT & women’s issues in Africa.
And finally, Russell Tovey makes his first appearance next week as gay superhero, ‘The Ray’. His character exists in an alternate timeline, where the Nazis won World War 2, and crosses over into the 4 other DC superhero series.
