The Molina de Segura City Council joins the voices that cry for freedom and equality on the International Pride Day 2019 with the deployment of the LGTBIQ flag on the municipal balcony (28/06/2019)

On the occasion of the celebration of the International LGTBIQ Pride Day 2019, today, Friday, June 28, the LGTBIQ flag was displayed on the balcony of the Molina de Segura Town Hall, with the assistance of the Mayor of the town, Esther Clavero Mira , councilors of the Municipal Corporation, and representatives of the collectives Do not deprive yourself, ASFAGALEM and Ni Peras Ni Manzanas.

The International LGTBIQ Pride Day is celebrated on June 28, a day in which attention is drawn to a collective whose rights have not always been respected and which, even today, continues to be subject to discriminatory and unequal treatment.

Thus, on the occasion of this commemoration, the municipality of Molinense joins the institutional declaration of the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces (FEMP) on the occasion of the International LGTBIQ Pride Day, as a demonstration of the commitment of local entities to equality, universality of rights and firm condemnation of any type of discrimination.

The entire content of the institutional declaration is reproduced below:


"The rights of LGTBI people are protected in accordance with the international human rights legislation in force, although specific measures are often required to ensure that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons (LGTBI) enjoy full rights. LGTBI people have the same rights as all others, no new human rights are created for them, nor do any of them have to be denied them "

Guidelines to promote and protect the enjoyment of all human rights by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGTBI) Council of the European Union - June 24 and 2013.

On December 6, 1978, the Spanish people ratified the Spanish Constitution in a referendum and marked the beginning of a new stage in our history in which public authorities must promote the conditions for freedom and individual equality to be real and effective, facilitating the participation of all citizens in political, economic, cultural and social life, without any discrimination based on birth, race, sex, religion, opinion or any other condition or personal or social circumstance prevailing.

20 days later, on December 26, 1978, the crime of homosexuality included in Law 16/1970, of August 4, on Dangerousness and Social Rehabilitation, which recognized as "[...] cases of dangerous state [...] was eliminated. habitual lazy, ruffians and pimps [...] and those who carry out acts of homosexuality "(article 2.3) and that established penalties ranging from fines to five years' imprisonment in prisons or psychiatric centers for their" rehabilitation ".

With its publication in the BOE of January 11, 1979, 40 years ago, the illegality of homosexuality in Spain ceased.

A month later, in February 1979, people imprisoned because of their sexual and gender status left the prisons and ended decades of contempt, humiliation, imprisonment and criminalization.

Despite this, LGTBIQ people continued to be persecuted with the figure of the Public Scandal Law, modified in 1983 and repealed in 1989.

With this memory, the FEMP adheres, one more year, to the commemoration of the International LGTBIQ Pride Day by renewing the commitment of local administrations with equal treatment and opportunities, recognizing the decisive contribution that the Spanish Constitution has made to the coexistence, social cohesion and the advancement of our society and highlighting the progress that has been made over the last 40 years in favor of the social normalization of those who have a sexual orientation different from the majority and / or identify themselves and they express with another gender different from the one socially assigned to them.

Thus, over the last 40 years, Spanish municipalities have made equality and non-discrimination one of their priority areas of action by making efforts to develop measures that meet the real needs of all people, promoting respect actions , recognizing fundamental rights as such and promoting full protection against discrimination.

It is, at the municipal level, where local governments give their hands to citizens and facilitate awareness and education tools in order to eradicate from our society any type of demonstration against LGTBIQ people both in the family, as in the school , labor, social, cultural, economic and political.

For all these reasons, the Local Governments meeting in the FEMP:

We invite all Local Entities to adhere to this Declaration and we join all the voices that cry for an equal future of all people regardless of their sexual identity and / or gender and their sexual orientation.

We express our commitment to the principle of the universality of human rights and reject any appeal to ideological, cultural, traditional or religious values ​​to justify any type of discrimination.

We strongly condemn any form of violence, including both physical and verbal violence, humiliation and contempt for sexual orientation and gender identity.

We demand the elaboration and application of a multi-year European policy for the protection of the fundamental rights of LGTBIQ people that pays special attention to multiple discrimination and violence originating in sexual orientation and gender identity.

We demand, in line with the different Resolutions approved within the European Parliament, the need to have formal mechanisms for the regular collection of relevant and comparable data on the situation of LGTBIQ people and the violence they suffer in order to carry out a diagnosis of the situation in our country that allows us to identify the real needs towards which we must orient our policies.

We recognize the contribution, work and effort that have been made and continue to be made by third sector organizations that work for equality, in defense of human rights and in the promotion and protection of the fundamental rights of LGTBIQ people.

We ratify the need to invest in policies in favor of sexual diversity and the non-discrimination of people because of their sexual orientation or gender identity through the development of programs and projects of attention, information, training, awareness and awareness, that make our cities and towns safe spaces for sexual diversity in all its manifestations.

We affirm that equality policies are not possible without the City Councils and we claim the need to provide the Local Entities with sufficient funding to carry out the competences in this matter that allow us to ensure the adequate implementation of all the necessary initiatives to guarantee equality effectiveness of people in all Spanish municipalities.
