Nicaragua - and International Day Against Homophobia

Two action items, both from Amnesty International:

Nicaragua is sanctioning homophobia at the highest levels of government, and Amnesty International is trying to get that country's sodomy law overturned. Given Nicaragua's track record and religious orthodoxy, I am not surprised at all (the same holds for the rest of Central America).

And the 17th will be the International Day Against Homophobia 2006, IDAHO for short. Interestingly, the acronym spells out one of the most homophobic states in the US. There will be activities around the world, targeted against homophobic cities and nations, especially in the Slavic and Muslim worlds.
