Updates: As of July 21, 2017 – Germany’s Marriage Equality has been signed into law by President Frank-Walter Steinmeier which will take effect in October 1, 2017. Please click on the image below for more details of the story. (credit source: dw.com)

Indeed, on June 30, 2017, Germany’s Bundestag (Parliament) voted for the legalization of #SameSexMarriage across Germany.

Our Congratulations to the LGBTQ+ community across Germany. There is nothing more essential that to get recognized with equal marriage to those of the heterosexuals. More Power across the globe for #MarriageEquality.

“It is very positive for the self-esteem of gays and lesbians; it’s very important for people coming out, knowing that they have this equality,; and it sends clear message to any homophobic refugees coming to Germany; We have equality here.” – said Arndt Bächler, Counselor and Addiction Therapist, Berlin’s Gay Counselling Center.

“The law was not about ‘special rights for anyone but about equal rights’; the law would play significant role in combating discrimination, by helping make same-sex relationships a social norm in Germany, as they have been as many countries across Europe.  Last week, the German Parliament voted to void the convictions of 50,000 men punished under anti-gay law repealed in 1994.

I am certain that just a few years from now, as a society we will look back on this decision on Marriage Equality, and ask ourselves, “Why on earth did it take us so long?” – said, Christine Lüders, Director of Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency (source credit: NYTimes)

#London Celebrates 2017 Pride “LGBT+ are the antidote to the sadness”, said Mayor Sadiq Khan

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

On Saturday (London Time), thousands of people will celebrate the 2017 Pride Parade in London. Wishing everyone with great fun and enjoyments. Happy Pride to the entire community of LGBT+

For anyone who plans to see the parade, please scroll down to see the path where the parade will take place.

The 2017 London Pride Celebrations also marked the 50th year since the Sexual Offences Act 1967, which decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales.

 

“It was in the Houses of Parliament that homosexuality was decriminalised, equal consent laws were introduced, the bigoted Section 28 was repealed, where civil partnership and ultimately equal marriage were adopted.

“This powerful institution, right at the heart of British democracy, has become a powerful tool for equality in recent times.

 “The rainbow flag flying above serves as a testament to this legacy and a reflection of how far we have come as a community – with more LGBT+ politicians than any other country in the world.” – said David Geary, head of political engagement for Pride In London (credit source: telegraph.co.uk)

Germany On a Path to Marriage Equality #SameSexMarriage

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

In a recent development, Germany is on its path for Marriage Equality.

Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel encouraged the Bundestag Members to weigh-in on “question for conscience”.  Her Parliamentary Leader Volker Kauder asked CDU’s members of the Bundestag to show for the vote. CDU (Christian Democratic Union of Germany) is Angela Merkel’s political party. The Social Democrats, Merkel’s  grand coalition partner are expected to table the voting sooner than September 24, 2017. (credit source: dw.com)

Speculations indicate that the vote may pass as majority of the Germans do not opposed to SameSex Marriage according to a study that was released  early this year by Germany’s Anti-discrimination Agency. Perhaps in the coming days or weeks Germany’s Marriage Equality will become a reality.

More power to the #LGBTQ community of Germany. #lovewins #loveislove #MarriageEquality

This year the US #LoveWins celebrates its second year anniversary of Marriage Equality;

It is Not an Employer’s or Government’s Choice that You Retire at 65: “It Is My Individual Choice”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

You can retire at any time you like provided you have the means.

In today’s generation,  we have many ‘Entrepreneurs’ who have cracked the ceiling by pursuing faster lanes for retirement-ability than working for whole life, plus they still contribute to the ‘Social Security Program’. On the other hand, there are many hardworking individuals who built their resources successfully. However, many others are worried that they may not be able to retire at appropriate age. At the same time those that are working and will be working must participate in the Social Security Program.

“Who started the idea that one has to retire at 65 or 67 years of age?

This is a concept that was derived from Social Security Law, was created in 1935 that aimed to provide old age, survivors, and disability insurance benefits to workers and their families. When the worker reached 65 years of age, they can begin accessing the so called ‘Social Security Program Benefits’ that they are entitled with.  One must have been contributing certain percent of income since the individual started working, provided such employer has legitimately guiding that individual to pay their social security contribution.

Why not challenge yourself to retire sooner at the age of 55 and then enjoy living with your resources. This is doable Mr. Terrenal said; provided that you will keep self-discipline, self-drive and self-determination in achieving that personal goal. 

Retiring from the environment of work is determined by us and not by the employer or the government. Many have achieved that goal, why can’t you.

#LGBTI Australians Gain Support From Religious Leaders for #MarriageEquality

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Perhaps Australia will be coming at age to accept ‘#MarriageEquality‘ among its citizens.

Hopefully, their divisive political leaders will come to an agreement in supporting this socially impactful legislation for their #LGBTI citizens.

Recently, Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was called by religious leaders to legislate marriage equality now.  Here are some of their highlights; (source: equalitycampaign.org.au)

  • More than 100 Australian Religious Leaders have called on the PM Malcolm Turnbull to legislate for marriage equality now.
  • Support from all major Australian religions – leaders from Catholic, Anglican, Uniting, Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish Faiths, the Salvation Army and the Quakers.
  • This is about Civil Marriage Equality – ensuring every Australian is afforded the same dignity and respect.

Congratulations to Leo Varadkar, An Openly Gay and Youngest Taoiseach of Ireland

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

“It is great to see another member of the LGBTQ+ as #RealLeader of a nation; this time the Taoiseach of Ireland – Leo Varadkar. Congratulation and more power to the Prime Minister.

 “He represents a younger generation. He represents a modern, diverse and inclusive Ireland and speaks for them like no other, an Ireland in which each person can fulfill their potential and live their dreams,” – Outgoing Prime Minister Enda Kenny (source: vox.com)

Background:

In April 2003, Leo Varadkar completed his six-year degree in medicine at Trinity College Dublin. He was a member of Young Fine Gael on campus and was elected as a councillor with 5,000 first preference votes a year after he entered politics. Leo is the first graduate of the college to be elected Taoiseach.

He is now in the Irish history book, as the first openly gay and country’s youngest prime minister, and the son of an Indian immigrant. Leo’s partner is Matthew Barrett, who is also a doctor by profession.

Leo Varadkar, 38 and newly elected Taoiseach of Ireland, is the EU’s youngest national leader;  Jüri Ratas, is 38-year-old  and the Prime Minister of Estonia, and Emmanuel Macron, 39, the recently elected President of France; the trio are all under  the age of 40. (source reference: theguardian)

UK Citizens Have Cornered Theresa May’s Arrogance And Insensitivity: The Hung Parliament “the youths played a big role”

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

The UK Citizens have decided to give Theresa May the tail of her political career after presenting herself with arrogance and insensitivity toward the British people. The election that she demanded backfired and the results will intensify the end of her premiership. Her failure to garner majority seats was impacted by her self-mandated election. Now, her moments as a prime minister is numbered as her party colleagues are rising to oust her.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party Leader and #RealLeader have transformed the UK’s political energy where every generation, particularly the millennials went to the polls yesterday to decide their future and other generations future. His party ignited support across United Kingdom because they presented a humane-manifesto that illustrated care for their own citizenry.

As Matthew d’Ancona puts it “her dreams lie in ashes“.

In the coming days and weeks, we will witness some tactical strategies that May’s team will implement in order to try hard in saving their losses from the Citizenry; who turned their back on them. In progress, the camp of the ‘Theresa May’ and the ‘DUP’ – Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland are trying to cooperate as a Coalition. The Citizens of UK might get blind-sided with the approach of Theresa May and her team because they are teaming-up with a ‘hateful group’ – the DUP.

Perhaps the Labour party will disclose all the DUP’s past in order to navigate a trustworthy government of UK for the sake of the Citizenry. More power to the new Labour Party under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn and his team.

“We call for a #MarchForTruth on Saturday, June 3rd to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that Americans want answers. The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.”

The Goals:

  • An independent commission must be established, and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;
  • As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;
  • Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
  • If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.

The #MarchforTruth is one among the voices of America, that will be fighting for the preservation of democracy. More power to all Americans who are fighting for the real truth, against fake news and alternative facts.

It is up to him now, strengthened by the experience he acquired with me, to continue his march. I wish him every success.” – President François Hollande, France. (Source: NYTimes)
