Winter issue of Pink Humanist ready for download

Besi Besemar January 8, 2017

The Pink Humanist is an online magazine published by the UK LGBT charity the Pink Triangle Trust (PTT), featuring topics of special interest to those who identify as atheists, freethinkers, humanists, secularists and sceptics in the LGTB+ communities and those who support them.

The magazine’s editor is Barry Duke who also edits the Freethinker (the Voice of Atheism since 1881).

In the latest issue (Winter 2017) human rights campaigners Peter Tatchell and Leo Igwe respectively write about the contentious Ashers Bakery gay cake legal battle, and Chad’s decision to criminalise homosexuality.

The issue also contains details of Malta’s decision to ban gay cure therapy and the dismay this move has caused to Christian zealots who remain convinced that homosexuality can be eliminated through reparative therapy.

The cover story by Barry Duke explores the reasons why Islam’s hatred of homosexuals shows no signs of abating and continues to blight the lives of millions of LGBT+ Muslims.

The issue also carried the obituaries of four prominent gay rights champions who died in December 2016 – Brighton resident Ted McFadyen, Australian Anne Deveson, Rabbi Lionel Blue and Lord Jenkin.

There is also a review of an excellent new graphic novel – The Case of Alan Turing: The Extraordinary and Tragic Story of the Legendary Codebreaker.
