KAZACHSTAN | LGBT-activiste bedreigd na commentaar op homofobe worstelaar

In Kazachstan wordt de lesbische activiste Nurbibi Nurkadilova bedreigd. Ze had worstelaar Kuat Khamitov, bijgenaamd Naiman, aangesproken op een homofobe uitspraak. Hij noemde homo’s “erger dan honden”.

Zijn collega Artem Reznikov riep fans op de Aarde te zuiveren van “niet-traditionele geaardheden”.

A few days ago I wrote an open letter to Kuat Khamitov (“Naiman”), a famous MMA fighter. In this letter, I wrote of my dissatisfaction in response to his insulting comment about my community. You can find the full message on my page and an english version on @kokteam ⠀ It caused a wave of negativity towards me, mainly from offended fans of the athlete. ⠀ They bullied me with insults to my sexual orientation, appearance, and other types of negativity. Worst than that though were the threats to the life and health of both my girlfriend and me. They went on to threaten all representatives of the LGBT community and their allies in Kazakhstan. ⠀ Since Kuat Khamitov is a media person, and has a blue checkmark on Instagram confirming this, he is responsible for his statements as one’s audience listens to the opinions of authoritative people. ⠀ In defense of Kuat, his colleague Artem Reznikov spoke out and called for cleansing the earth from people of non-traditional orientation. Together they became the catalyst for the horror that is happening on my page. I am called to battle. They threaten to rape, kill, burn me, etc. ⠀ This is an appeal to people all over the planet! Open your eyes. Do not think that the problem of bullying a minority for their sexual preference is not a serious problem. Hundreds of thousands of people daily experience this on various scales! Boys and girls are defenseless in their desire to love. I am defenseless in my desire to love and be loved! This case clearly shows you in what a cruel world the entire LGBT community lives. There are many problems in the world, namely violence against women, children and animals, and the culprit is always one – cruelty! So let's stand up for the victims of any violence, and let it be the LGBT community today. ⠀ We have the opportunity to change something. This is the first such case in Kazakhstan, when we can attract so many people to this problem! Let's not stand aside. We must help people to love, work, and openly walk the streets without fearing to declare their orientation! I’m for a world where you don’t have to be afraid for someone you love!

Homoseks is sinds 1998 niet meer strafbaar in Kazachstan. Van geslachtsaanduiding veranderen kan slechts onder zeer strikte voorwaarden.
