Pink Point - Descartes

To The Point - True stories from Pink Point, the gay and lesbian info kiosk at the Homomonument. See www.pinkpoint.org

Kartezio! Kartezio! someone is calling out passionately. It’s a peaceful day at Pink Point with quite a bit of sun, I’ve finished refilling one of the postcard racks and am just dusting off a new display when a repeated Kartezio! Kartezio! rips my eardrums. I look up to where the sound is coming from and am not very surprised to see a tourist with an enormous pair of sunglasses on his nose. As if I could have missed it the first four times he shouts again: Kartezio!

Porn DVD Review - Rough Plowing in Michael Lucas’ ‘Fuck Me Hard’

Edmund White writes in “City Boy,” published last year and subtitled “My Life in New York During the 1960s and ’70s,” that “in 1972 ‘L.A. Plays Itself,’ a hard-core porn film starring the charismatic director Fred Halstead, opened on Fifty-sixth Street and ran briefly before the cops closed it down. It had a notorious fisting scene, and the whole atmosphere of the second half of the movie was in complete grim contrast to the plucked pretty-boy look of the new East Coast porn such as ‘The Boys in the Sand.’”

How AIDS Disrupted Cultural Life

In the summer of 1977 the Rooie Flikkers (Red Faggots) from Amsterdam organized a summer camp near Montaigu de Quercy, as the French say “dans la profonde France.” The queens came from all over Western Europe: many Dutch and French, but also German, Italian, Swedish, Belgian and English. It was a special occasion for everyone: we created our own fabulous gay world at a big farm and we could do as we pleased on the ample grounds surrounding it. For two weeks it was the queer nation we lacked at home.

Letter from Brussels - The Ultimate Hypocrisy

Dear Northern Neighbors, Perhaps it was only a few weeks ago that you first heard the name Roger Vangheluwe or that of George Rekers in the (Dutch) media. Or how our most favorite bishop, monseigneur Vangheluwe, reluctantly admitted he had been sexually abusing his nephew for years. The American preacher George Rekers rented himself a male escort to carry his luggage on a European round trip.

Sophie Schers: ‘It’s Nice The Gender Registration Is Going To Be Taken Out Of Le

Every three days somebody somewhere is being killed for being transsexual. These murders generally take place in Latin America, the United States, or in Turkey.

Embrace Pink also holds a memorial day in Tilburg.

First gay rights activist' Antony Grey dies aged 82

Mr Grey, born Anthony Edgar Gartside Wright, had been ill for several years with leukaemia and died at King Edward VII Hospital in London on Friday April 30th. He is regarded as Britain's first gay rights activist and was instrumental in forcing the government to push through the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, which paved the way for modern law reform. He began campaigning for gay equality in 1958, when he joined the Homosexual Law Reform Society, which campaigned to change laws which criminalised gay men.

Hiv-epidemic in Eastern Europe

A lack of attention for 'harm reduction' measures - clean needles for drug addicts for example - is causing hiv and tuberculosis epidemics in Eastern Europe and Russia, says Gerry Stimson, director of the IHRA and Professor emeritus at the Imperial College in London. At the moment barely 2 eurocents per drug user is invested in harm reduction, measures aimed at tackling the negative effects of drug using for the users themselves, as well as their environment and the society.

Another gay bashing in Amsterdam

'It happened,' he said, 'shortly after the Liberation Day party, at half past twelve. 'Together with a friend and girlfriend I crossed the Niek Engelschman bridge in the direction of Dam Square. Two Moroccan boys called out a provocation but we were in a happy mood and thought: whatever, let's keep going.
