Gay Marriage In A Small Argentine Town
by On Top Magazine Staff
On Friday, two men became the first gay couple to get hitched in the small town of Ramallo, Argentina in Buenos Aires province. According to Ramallo Ciudad y su Region, Raul Saavedra and Ruben Rios are the first gay couple to marry in the small town, population 11,000. The couple met more than 3 years ago and held a commitment ceremony in 2009.
Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize gay marriage last year. “What has changed is the legal, we’ve been together a long time and the only thing left was to tie the knot. It’s really a pleasure to have this right, today I feel it’s worth voting, I feel that from now on we will be considered citizens like any heterosexual marriage,” Raul told the paper.
Argentina’s gay marriage law gives gay and lesbian couples all the rights and responsibilities of marriage, including adoption. A gay marriage law also approved last year in Portugal does not include the right to adopt.

Inauguran Centro de Alfabetización para Trans en Tucuman – Literacy Center for Trans People Opens in Tucuman, Argentina
Crisálida puso en marcha un centro para la alfabetización de transgéneros, transexuales y travestis en la ciudad de San Miguel de Tucumán. El mencionado centro tiene la particularidad de que tanto sus alfabetizadoras como sus asistentes, son trans. De este modo Crisálida busca promover los derechos de la comunidad trans poniendo en marcha espacios y proyectos inclusivos. La inauguración del centro para la alfabetización de identidades y expresiones de género trans, se realizó en la sede de Crisálida el miércoles 16 de febrero en uno de los semanales encuentros del Área Trans de Crisálida.
El centro de alfabetización se enmarca dentro de las acciones que viene desarrollando Crisálida en la provincia,. Estas son las presentaciones de acciones de amparos por identidad trans (las primeras y únicas en la provincia) y los pedidos de aplicación de normas de trato social en la Universidad Nacional de Tucumán y dependencias gubernamentales, como los Ministerios de Educación y de Salud; y la Defensoría del Pueblo de la provincia. Esta iniciativa busca la inclusión de la comunidad trans, la cual a muy temprana edad abandona la escolaridad debido a situaciones derivadas de la discriminación, las prácticas y acciones transfobicas.
Las encuestas realizadas por el Area Queer NOA en 2005, 2007 y 2009 arrojó como resultado que la causa de deserción escolar en la población trans es la discriminación y el desarraigo. Esto impacta en la búsqueda de horizontes laborales a muy temprana edad, siendo el más recurrente la prostitución. “Es conocido que cuanto menor es el nivel de formación logrado, mayor es el grado de vulnerabilidad y la imposibilidad de poder acceder a un pleno ejercicio de los derechos humanos. Acudir de nuevo a clase aumenta su autoestima, mejora su formación y su calidad de vida, a la vez que les anima a hacerse un espacio en el mercado laboral” señala Gustavo Diaz Fernandez, presidente de Crisálida, y subraya “El analfabetismo femenino es sinónimo de discriminación en el ejercicio de derechos”.
Las mujeres trans son las primeras en tener que dejar los estudios para trabajar o se enfrentan a situaciones que les impiden continuar su educación y acceder a un futuro mejor. El proyecto se lleva a cabo dentro de los Centros de Alfabetización para Jóvenes y Adultos/as que son coordinados por la Red de Mujeres Solidarias que preside la Senadora Nacional Beatriz Rojkes de Alperovich. Consultada sobre la posibilidad de realización de este proyecto, la Senadora viabilizó todo lo necesario para su concreción. Los Centros de Alfabetización para jovenes y adultos/as integran el programa nacional de alfabetización jovenes y adultos.
Según la UNESCO, de los 796 millones de adultos que no saben leer ni escribir, el 64% son mujeres. El segundo de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio pretende lograr la enseñanza primaria universal. La meta para 2015 es conseguir que entonces los menores de todo el mundo tengan la posibilidad de terminar un ciclo completo de enseñanza primaria.
El pasado 8 de septiembre, Día Internacional de la Alfabetización, la UNESCO escogió el tema “Alfabetización y autonomía de la mujer”. Su objetivo es “generar conocimientos y métodos innovadores en apoyo de la adquisición y uso de la lectura y la escritura”. Este proyecto toma estos objetivos a la vez que se plantea como medio a favor de desarrollar experiencias y buenas prácticas, que reformulen las políticas educativas y la ejecución de sus programas desde una perspectiva que incluya a la diversidad.
Priscila, una de las alumnas que tendrá el centro, reflexionó “ser travesti significa, por el simple hecho de serlo, tener menos posibilidades de aprender a leer y escribir. Yo navegué en un mar de dificultades, pero estoy decidida a no naufragar. Estudiar es el único modo para progresar en la vida”. Crisálida es una ONG compuesta por activistas que trabajan por la promoción, acceso y respeto por los derechos humanos en Tucumán desde 2005. Su accionar se concentra en los derechos inherentes a la orientación afectivo sexual y las expresiones e identidades de género, como asi también en los derechos sexuales y reproductivos y los DESC.
Desarrollan actividades con otros movimientos y organizaciones sociales, articulando en diversos espacios. Entre sus componentes destacamos la biblioteca popular de género y diversidad afectivo sexual; el espacio de asesoramiento juridico gratuito Crisálida JUS; el Área Trans, el Área Queer NOA, el Área Salud por mencionar algunos. Desde 2008 coordinan el Observatorio LGBT Tucumán www.observatoriolgbt.org.ar con el apoyo de agencias de Naciones Unidas en Argentina y el Ministerio de Salud de la Nación.

30 noches, 30 camas – Documentary Film on Intimacy and Sexual Diversity
Buenos Aires –(SentidoG.com)
Lukas Darko, un joven queer de 30 años, comenzará a rodar el proyecto documental “30 noches, 30 camas”, en el que pretende mostrar la intimidad de diversos entrevistado relacionados con la diversidad sexual.
Consultado por SentidoG.com sobre el proyecto, Lucas confió que “nace como consecuencia de la experiencia que tuve en diferentes noches que me he quedado a dormir en la casa de alguien y me di cuenta que a pesar que las personas mienten en la vida, la casa no puede mentir. Siempre me gustó despertarme unos segundos antes de la persona con la que estoy, y ver que libros tiene, cuales cds hay, cuales son copiados, cuales son originales… ver el baño de una casa es entrar en la intimidad”.
Y agrega que “pretendo invadir su casa, su cama, meterme en la intimidad, en la cena sin posturas, en el que me compartan su casa, sus familias, sus mascotas y bañaderas; volverme por un rato alguien de su mundo puertas adentro, ahí donde no se necesitan ni mascaras ni personajes, ahí donde el dolor es real y la confesión pura”. El documental también será acompañado por un libro y un dvd donde se podrá ver una visión mas instrospectiva de lo que sucedió en esas 30 noches.
“Con este proyecto espero divertirme y mostrar el lado B de la gente. Voy a entrevistar travestis, lesbianas, drag queens, taxi boys, escritores, músicos, pero en realidad fuera de esos rotulos, voy a entrevistar gente. Y es un proyecto orientado mas a lo queer que es lo que me toca mas de cerca, pero no descarto seguir con el proyecto en otros ámbitos. No es un proyecto con ganas d mostrar sexo, que si lo hay se mostrará, pero es una entrevista de noche en la cama de cada persona” indica entusiasmado el autor.
Sobre este punto acalara que “capaz alguna noche me filme garchando, pero me divierte mas filmar cuando eyaculo verdades, cuando el falo de la palabra desangra estructuras y mecanismos de defensa, prefiero que la libido sea contenida en una mirada que supo desnudar y que las literalidades se queden en lo mediocre; donde todos huelen las hermosas flores yo gusto de tirarme encima, dejarme caer entre las espinas y desangrarme en la tierra para crecer en ellas. Donde todos quieren ser loto yo prefiero ser el fango mas podrido y fecundo…” La cinta será filmada en un estilo desprolijo y amateur, “para que sea algo mas intimo, casual y real. Y espero que me acompañen y me espíen esas 30 noches a través de los diferentes medios, y me gustaría que los demás se animen a compartir su cama conmigo” dice Lucas.

Launch Campaign "Cures That Kill" to combat homophobia in Latin America
May 17 marks the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia lesbophobia (IDAHO). This date marks the historical fact that the World Health Organization in 1990, removed homosexuality from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Diseases and Related Health Problems.
Cures That Kill
In Latin America, a coalition of organizations for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) takes this day to bring attention to therapy to "convert" lesbian, gay and transgender people are employed at all the countries of the region, although not authorized by WHO and by most national psychiatric associations. They are collecting signatures from the international community in support of International Manifesto "CURES TO KILL: A life without discrimination is a right" from the website created for the occasion and Facebook.
International Manifesto Summary
May 17 marks the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia lesbophobia as in 1990, in a historical echo, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially accepted homosexuality as a natural variation of human sexuality . Since then, the international scientific community is opposed to all approaches that consider homosexuality a disease that must be "cured." Medical and political consensus is also growing around the world, in the sense of adopting the same approach to transsexuality.
Opposing this, some conservative voices still preach and promote the so-called "reparative therapy", often with the support of religious and sometimes even in public institutions. (Read case in Argentina) These "treatments" are not only ineffective, but rather reinforce feelings of guilt and low self-esteem, increase psychological distress and, in extreme cases, lead people to suicide. Moreover, by spreading homophobia and transphobia lesbophobia, incite discrimination, assaults and murders. The large regional campaign for Latin America and the Caribbean "Cures To Kill" opposes any therapy that seeks to "cure" homosexuality and transsexuality.
We demand that governments adhere to the principle of secularism States
Latin American and Caribbean countries and take concrete measures to combat the practice "reparative" of homosexuality and transsexuality, including the disruption of any public funding to institutions or individuals that are not clearly distanced from such practices. Demand that the national or local public health to withdraw from public health systems and private individuals who practice or promote practices "reparative" of homosexuality and transsexuality.
We urge that private donors and financial inclusion as a criterion in approving requests for support, the rejection of speech therapy "reparative" that violate human rights. Request that the religious authorities strongly condemn the use of discourses that suggest and / or promote processes of "repair" of homosexuality and transsexuality, and to promote the acceptance of sexual diversity and gender as variables of human nature.

We are in infinite ways so radical queers, which means a dissident and manifest sexuality. " The same configuration, Marlene, was "dehumanized with the action of hegemonic thought that was chained to a grim consistency: demonization, criminalization and pathologizing." Marlene, a six-foot transvestite, sweet voice and precise word, headed "The Weave" one of the most original communication of the moment he was born in 2007 in the heat of the first journalism workshop for transvestites and transsexuals, given by Alejandra Dandan.

The chongos sleeping next to us shouted a string of obscenities. And with the arrival of the military all got worse, "said Malva. "I want the gays of today know how we lived before.

The Ombudsman of Tucuman Implement Standards of Treatment for Transgender People
The Ombudsman Hugo Cabral signed the resolution that implements the Standards of Social Treatment for Trans Gender Identities in the whole area of distribution in Tucumán. The opinion takes the latest recommendations of UN identity. Thus, the Ombudsman is the 1st provincial government institution that decides to accept our request, to implement this measure. "The mistaken belief that the identity of persons is defined by the identification made at birth, brings the exclusion of the transgender community in the field where it prevails," said dr.
Agustin Martinez JUS Chrysalis director. "The resolution adopted by Mr. Ombudsman, it is crucial from several points of view. First, people turn to the Ombudsman, usually by violation of fundamental rights, will find there a place in which they will be treated in a respectful, self-perceived gender being recognized and the name chosen accordingly. Second, because the state agency will drive the rest of the province, active policies in favor of good treatment. The application of standards of treatment, show the way to a correct identification of individuals, consistent with the constructed identity, and are a significant boost to the adoption of necessary laws, "concluded the lawyer.
The opinion explicitly committed to the advocacy push them in the offices of the provincial government. "Since the advocacy we work to ensure full access to human rights for all people. Therefore, the Ombudsman will respect trans gender identities. " Cabral said the architect, ombudsman of Tucumán. Since early 2010, Chrysalis has been promoting the application of social standards of treatment for persons with trans gender identities. In december of last year Chrysalis got the Legal Affairs Department of the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán favorable opinion to the implementation of social standards of treatment for persons with trans gender identities in the whole area of the Upper House of Studies.
Similarly, Chrysalis presented the order to the Ombudsman of Tucumán, noting that in the field of public administration should ensure respect for gender identity, dignity and integrity of all people. Therefore it is necessary to ensure the scope of the Ombudsman of the province and other institutions, the real and effective enforcement of human rights enshrined in our Constitution through the incorporation of international treaties that provide for the personal rights and the right to privacy (Art. 75, 22. CN).
In this regard, and within the scope and interpretation to be accorded to legal regulations previously cited above, it is appropriate and desirable to ensure in the field of public administration the right people, transsexual and transgender people be called by name meaning, self-perceived, or identity, ie who have freely adopted in full exercise of human rights above mentioned. Recognition and respect for the free sexual orientation and gender identity results in the preservation, mainly for human dignity, while, in turn, guarantees freedom, equality and non-discriminatory, allowing for better relations within the community, facilitating the full development of personality of people. Just as you remember that respect for the right to gender identity or expression, promotes health and physical and psychological integrity of individuals, also promoting his best performance at work and in all areas of your life.

Argentina: Tucumán City in Favor of Comprehensive Sex Education (ESI)
‘Chrysalis LGBT’ organization is concerned public demonstrations against the Parent Network of Tucuman and encourages the provincial government to provide greater support to the distribution of the magazine "comprehensive sex education. To chat with family ", published by the Ministry of Education of the Nation. We remind the Parent Network of Tucuman and the community that our Constitution provides that "The purpose of education is the development of the human person" (In the constitution of the province of Tucumán: Article 144 .- The education shall be purpose of formation of the human person, attending his vocation for the transcendent destiny) and sexuality is certainly a key component of this overall development, as is inextricably linked to the identity of the person and is instrumental in the development of links.
In that sense, it is possible to talk of guaranteeing the right to education without providing comprehensive sex education (ESI). Sex education as a human right and addressed in a comprehensive, articulated the biological, psychological, social, emotional and ethical, recognizing girls (you) and adolescents as subjects (I) of law, giving them (OS) tools to make informed decisions, to design their own lives and take him out. This comprehensive view of the people transcends the purely biological and physical to include aspects that have to do with the social, with the normative, with affection, interpersonal relationships, respect for diversity and equity between men and women. There are international commitments and national policy framework that promotes comprehensive sex education. However it is worrying to note that even if not met, for various reasons. We are concerned that continuing education without secular education as befits a democratic state, but rather is being influenced by certain religious content skewing the true goal of education.
So, that sexuality is often associated with taboos, prejudices, myths, fears and shame. Sex education has traditionally been addressed so repressive and limited prohibitions against transmitting messages to the exercise of sexuality and / or reducing it to information on anatomy. In addition, the education system, maintain and reinforce stereotypes and exclusions based on gender, age, race, sexual orientation, with various difficulties and barriers by teachers to address these issues. This scenario reveals a restricted rights for adolescents, in violation of fundamental rights and their right to education, to self-determination, equality and their right to health.
Comprehensive sexuality education is not only reflected in documents and standards, but implemented in the classroom, where adolescents promote participatory processes, facilitating the understanding of the body as the basis for the exercise of citizenship, including respect for and exercise of their sexual and reproductive rights, ensuring their right to education. You should therefore pay special attention to sexual diversity and the different emotional expressions and gender identities. A school that exclude and discriminate violates the rights of children to an education and build their own lives.
Moreover, since we want to remind Chrysalis Parent Network that our Constitution in its Art 75 Inc. 19 states that "education must ensure the promotion of democratic values and equal opportunities and non discrimination." The terms which express the network of Parents with misogynistic connotations, reproduce and encourage discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT). Reject and repudiate expressions, encouraging the authorities to take action on the matter against this kind of apologies, which are evidenced in discriminatory practices against vulnerable groups. Finally, we urge the provincial and national state immediately to protect children, girls and adolescents who currently make up the families of Parent Network, as clearly within the same message taught hatred, discrimination and exclusion. Which threaten the upper right of children and adolescents, guaranteed in our constitution.
