Gay Kosovars Flirt With Danger

10 Jun 2015  |  iwpr.net
Gay individuals in Kosovo face significant challenges due to societal prejudice and the lack of legal protections against hate crimes. Despite homosexuality not being illegal, it remains taboo, and gay rights activists report regular incidents of violence and intimidation. The situation is exacerbated by homophobic views expressed in local media and by religious leaders. Human rights groups have been criticized for their lack of clear stance on the issue. The recent conflict with Serbia and the influence of traditional Albanian laws have contributed to the stigmatization of the LGBTQ community. Some members of the gay and lesbian association have been victims of assault, and there is a fear of being outed, which prevents many from reporting hate crimes. The article highlights the struggle for acceptance and the dangers faced by gay Kosovars, who often lead double lives to avoid societal backlash.

Ester Vergeer, a wheelchair tennis player from the Netherlands, is celebrated for her unparalleled success in the sport, including a decade of undefeated play and 470 victories.

Vergeer found joy in wheelchair basketball and tennis, eventually focusing solely on tennis. She faced challenges, including the pressure of maintaining her winning streak and learning to live a non-sporting life after retirement. Vergeer has been praised by notable figures like Novak Djokovic and has worked to promote sports for disabled individuals, aiming for greater public attention and integration of Paralympic sports.
