Chamber of Catalonia Has Approved A Law Of Non-Discrimination For LGBT People

Written by

Catalonia could pass a nondiscrimination against LGBT people legislation.

The Chamber has indeed voted in favor of the bill that would condemn the attacks against LGBT people in a fine up to € 14,000.

However, there is still a lot of reservations about this legislation. The Conservative Party and the Bishop of Catalonia worry that the law requires a person accused of homophobia to prove his innocence.

Clearly, the person would first be charged before being found innocent (if innocent), while in general, a person is innocent until proven guilty.

A recent Pew Research survey found that 88% of Spanish believe that "homosexuality should be accepted", making Spain the country most accepting of homosexuality worldwide.

The equal marriage was also adopted in 2005.
