The FELGBT Launches #ConLaVozBienAlta Campaign That Mobilizes The Spanish Population Against Discrimination

Written by 

 

To fight against discrimination and insults that can undergo LGBT people, the National Federation for LGBT people (FELGBT), which groups 40 LGBT associations, launched the #ConLaVozBienAlta campaign to know how people were reacting against homophobia suffered by a gay couple.

To do so, a couple of men, posing as American tourists, ask people they meet in the street to help them understand a message left for them by the owners of a hostel. This message obviously contains a lot of homophobic language.

See their reactions of people who remain speechless facing such remarks (English subtitles available):

Spain remains classified as the most LGBT-friendly country in the world according to a ranking by Pew Research. Despite this, 37% of Spanish LGBT people feel persecuted or discriminated, and 57% are insulted.

If you are victims of such acts based on sexual orientation or gender identity, please contact the FELGBT here: http://www.felgtb.org/consultas-y-denuncias/atencion-a-victimas
