  1. The SPD sided with Angela Merkel 2 months ago to allow her to form a government and failed to live up to the SPD election promise to make Gay equality an mandatory issue,

    Chancellor Merkel has spent the last 10 years blocking gay equality in Germany. The fact one LGBT politician is allowed to exist in Merkels government, as a second class citizen, is nothing to celebrate in a Country which invented the pink triangle.

      Perhaps it might be possible to have a grown-up discussion about Germany without mentioning Hitler.

    Great ! Barbara Hendricks- quite an international name- You give positive signals to The German People ! In my younger years, I studied German Language, and many trips to Germany made me fall in love with this nation , working to overome a dark past. The Gay community in Deutschland needs persons like you ! Vorwärts und viel Glück !

  3. One small step for inexcusably homophobic Germany!
