P.S.G. Player Benched for Refusing to Wear Rainbow Jersey

Idrissa Gueye traveled south to Montpellier with his Paris St.-Germain teammates for the team’s league game on Saturday but wound up watching it from the stands. Gueye was not injured, his coach said after P.S.G.’s victory: He “had to leave the team for personal reasons.” Those personal reasons, a team source confirmed Monday, were that Gueye had refused to join his teammates in wearing a special jersey featuring rainbow-colored numbers created to highlight discrimination before Tuesday’s global events marking the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. The jerseys were part of a coordinated leaguewide effort.

Anti-gay pundit trolled hard on Twitter for criticizing Harry Style’s rainbow Coachella outfit
Harry Styles‘ fans are trolling conservative pundit Greg Kelly over his femme-phobic remark about the British singer — and the Twitter replies are hilarious.Kelly posted an image of Styles wearing a rainbow-sequined pantsuit during his Coachella 2022 performance and wrote, “I think Harry Styles would benefit from 3 years in the Marine Corps.” Kelly, a former Marine, probably assumes that military service would make Styles less flamboyant — nevermind that we know plenty of queer veterans who are femme AF and slay on the regular… but we digress.I think Harry Styles would benefit from 3 years in the Marine Corps.— Greg Kelly (@gregkellyusa) April 18, 2022Kelly may not have known that Styles was actually in the military… well, that is, he played a soldier in the 2017 film Dunkirk, a movie about the 1940 evacuation of European troops from a French beach under German attack during World War II.Styles’ fans began using screenshots from the film to mock Kelly, telling the pundit that he was wrong for “disrespecting the military.”Show some respect Harry is a decorated war hero from the battle of Dunkirk here’s two photographs documenting his time in service— Stacy (@Dixiechick3796) April 18, 2022He literally fought so hard in the war where are you living?

Film shot in Ukraine takes aim at Russian homophobia
state-sponsored homophobia and hate crimes.Little did they imagine the turn of events which has badly affected their cast and crew, a reported 80% of which were Ukrainian."Shooting in Russia was impossible because of the law that prohibits LGBT propaganda," says Govare."Filming two men kissing in the street would have landed us all in jail."Ukraine was chosen for its scenic similarity to Russia, and the filming facilities for Western teams. No one dared imagine a Russian invasion.Today, an actress from the film is sheltering with her children in the Kharkiv metro and crew members have taken up arms.Some of the team have fled to France, where they are calling for solidarity in the profession to find them work.For the directors, beyond homophobia, ‘The Spangled Shrimps’ is a hymn to freedom in general, and the link to the current situation in Ukraine is obvious."The film tells how Putin oppresses the LGBT community,” notes Le Gallo, who says he got used to singing "Slava Ukraïni" (glory to Ukraine) at the preview screenings in France."Today, Putin oppresses the whole world, so that particularly resonates".The film paints an unequivocal portrait of the effects of Putin’s policies, in a country where violence against homosexuals is frequent.It is in this universe that the merry gang of “Shiny Shrimps” arrives, joined by a new character, Sélim (Bilal El Atreby), a young heterosexual steeped in prejudice.
