A BITE OUT OF OUR PINK WORLD www.pinkinourlives.com
The Prime Minster has been voted by the LGBT community in the Flanders part of Belgium to be the media personality of 2015. Through an online poll 1238 viewers and fans have voted for the person who according to them brought the LGBT themes in the most positive way under the attention of the Belgian Media.
Mister Michel was very honored to receive the Award: “This prize is a huge boost and thumbs up for the complete government. The respect for Gay right is luckily very big in Belgium. I am happy to live in a country that provides equal rights for everybody without distinction. Unfortunately that isn’t the case everywhere”.
Last week in New York at the General Assembly of the United Nations the Prime Minster also spoke about the rights of the LGBT community. During his speech he emphasizes that there have to be respect for rights for the LGBT community everywhere. “Nowhere in the world, must be homosexuality considered to be a crime. We will fight for this case always persistent and consistent”.
These words were received with the community and the viewers of OUTtv with gratitude. These days homosexuality is still criminal in more than 70 countries. In some countries you can get the death penalty for being gay.
According to Ceo of OUTtv Marc Putman the Prime Minister got a well-deserved majority of the voting. Other contenders were hunky Eurovision Songcontest winner Mäns Zelmerlöw, handsome documentary maker Michiel Thomas and great actor Jef Hoogmartens. Zelmerlöw apologies publicly at OUTtv for his homophobic saying in the past. Thomas made a documentary about athletes that came out of the closet and in the Flemish soap opera “Thuis” Jef Hoogmartens portrayed transgender Franky. BUT….Minister Charles Michel’s name came up more and showed his support by being a judge with the Mister Gay Flanders competition this year. He presented the winner Skelte Willems his title last May.
Congratulations to Prime Minister Charles Michel also from Pink In Our Lives and we are just happy that so many people from different kinds of professions and sexuality support the LGBT community. Let us all get together and provide a better world where everybody can be themselves.
