Ho­mo­pho­bia con­demned.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Athens Jour­nal­ists’ Union (ESHEA) has con­demned a ho­mo­pho­bic front page of the Eleft­heri Ora news­pa­per, which in­cited read­ers to at­tack gay peo­ple, as “dis­gust­ing and big­oted.” The edition pub­lished on Wed­nes­day de­nounced a gen­der iden­tity bill that was voted into law in Par­lia­ment on Tues­day. The pa­per de­scribed the 148 law­mak­ers that voted for it as “per­verts” and called for phys­i­cal as­saults against gay peo­ple. In a state­ment yes­ter­day, the union also said that the pa­per’s at­tack against the “trans­ves­tite” Par­lia­ment was an af­front to demo­cratic in­sti­tu­tions. The out­cry over the pub­li­ca­tion prompted a Supreme Court pros­e­cu­tor to or­der a pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mat­ter.
