Austria’s Constitutional Court has overturned a law which prevented same-sex couples from marrying.

The new change makes Austria the first European nation to enshrine marriage equality as a human right.

 

A 99-year-old gay man has been denied reparations by the German government because he spent less than 6 months in jail for being gay. Holocaust survivor, Wolfgang Lauinger who petitioned to change the law is one of 3 who whose claims were denied, because of a technicality.

 

A survey has revealed the true cost of the Australian marriage equality debate – with 90% of people saying it had a negative impact on their wellbeing. Assaults against queer people more than doubled during the process, leaving many feeling isolated.

The man behind the Warwick Rowers nude charity calendar says Russian authorities have tried to shut down their website and returned orders for Russian customers. Angus Malcolm says the anti-gay propaganda rule and endemic homophobia are to blame.

 

And finally, US cop comedy Brooklyn 99 celebrated its 99th episode with a central character coming out as bisexual. With so little bisexual representation on TV, the move is considered a milestone, with writers saying they plan to develop the character’s story arc in the future.
