El incidente despectivo que involucra a Bloomsburg Fair es el último de estos actos viles, que por extensión afectan a las personas transgénero en todo el estado y la nación.“La Dra. Levine es una servidora pública distinguida y eficiente. Está comprometida a mantener a los residentes de Pennsylvania seguros y saludables, incluso a aquellos que dirigen ataques alimentados por el odio contra ella. Estoy orgulloso del trabajo que ha realizado en sus cinco años al servicio de los ciudadanos de Pennsylvania, y su éxito al dirigir nuestro estado durante la crisis de COVID-19 es un testimonio de su inteligencia y ética laboral.“El odio no tiene cabida en Pennsylvania, incluso en la más pequeña broma, acción o publicación transfóbica en las redes sociales.

Levine y a todas las personas transgénero en nuestro gran estado”.Rafael Álvarez Febo, director ejecutivo de la Comisión de asuntos para la comunidad LGBTQ de Pennsylvania, hizo la siguiente declaración en nombre de la comisión:“Los directivos de Bloomsburg Fair sabían que estaban alimentando los sentimientos transfóbicos cuando decidieron imitar a la Dra. Levine. Las comunidades marginadas sabemos cuándo estamos siendo atacadas y no nos van a manipular para que pensemos que se trata solo del cargo de la Dra. Levine como Secretaria de Salud. En tiempos de crisis y dolor, las personas de la comunidad LGBTQ están unidas para luchar contra cualquier tipo de transfobia. Los comisionados creen que la salud y la seguridad de los residentes de Pennsylvania no deben verse afectadas debido a estos ataques tóxicos y personales.”View this information in English.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Sagbo backed after quenelle charge

first_img The club fear that any ban for their Ivory Coast striker could rule him out of next week’s FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United at Wembley. Hull manager Steve Bruce issued an apology if Sagbo’s “actions have offended anybody” but insisted the player did not mean to do so. “As I have said repeatedly to the players with social media the way it is you have got to be careful because it is out there for the rest of the world to see. “I don’t quite understand Twitter and hashtags and really don’t want to but we have warned the players and it is an issue that we have all got and unfortunately it looks as though Yannick has a case to answer. “He has a bit of a language problem, I’m not quite sure why it has offended people but we have to answer the question and we have people involved to defend him.” QPR’s Benoit Assou-Ekotto has also been charged for tweeting his support of Anelka. Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri and Liverpool defender Mamadou Sahko escaped with a warning for being photographed performing the quenelle prior to Anelka using it in West Brom’s 3-3 draw at West Ham on December 28. Anelka was given a five-match ban for the quenelle salute due its anti-Semitic connotations. Sagbo posted a picture on Twitter of the celebration alongside the word: “Legend”. He also referred to Anelka as a role model of France’s urban youth. Hull have until Tuesday to respond to the FA charge and said they will seek a personal hearing. Bruce told a news conference ahead of Saturday’s match against Swansea: “It’s something that we have been made aware of for weeks, it’s something that they have took their time over, the FA, to study it. “We are going to defend him vigorously because we don’t think Yannick has tried to offend anybody. “Whether his actions have offended anybody, then on behalf of the club I will apologise. “We could lose him and especially with semi-finals and finals coming up and [Shane] Long and [Nikica] Jelavic not available then of course it would be a big blow to us.” Bruce said it was another warning about the dangers of social media. He added: “It’s a reminder to every player about social media. I don’t think there is any callousness at all in what Yannick has done but obviously the FA has seen it that he has done enough to offend people. Hull will “vigorously defend” an improper conduct charge against striker Yannick Sagbo for showing support for Nicolas Anelka’s quenelle goal celebration on social media.
