#554 February is #lgbthistorymonth and 2017 marks the #5othanniversary of partial #decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales. One focus this year is #law. According to Ilga’s latest report same-sex relationships are illegal in 72 states, 45 of which apply to women. 13 of these states still punish those found to be in same-sex relationships with the death penalty. Today I pray for all those whose love brings fear. I pray for change, for peace. I pray for hope for those who may have lost hope. Amen.
