GAYS OF THE WORLD: LET’S UNITE SO THAT BARÇA DOES NOT WEAR HOMOPHOBIC QATAR FOUNDATION IN ITS TSHIRT
[On September 24th 2011 Barça compromissaris voted in favor of Qatar on the tshirt. So this post is not to challenge the democratic decision of wearing an ad from a dictatorship. It is just the post I wrote some months ago that I wanna keep as a way to remeber what I wrote]
Dear Gays of the World
In some months one football team of Barcelona, FC BARCELONA or BARÇA will wear an ad in its tshirt. It will wear the ad of QATAR FOUNDATION.
As you may know homosexuality is forbidden in Qatar and you may go to prison for being gay there.
As you may know the world of football is a very homophobic one where gays people have to hide.
To add to an still homophobic sport an ad related to a homophobic state seems to me too much?
As you may know too Barcelona City is a very gay friendly city. So now in Barcelona we are going to have a very gay-friendly city with a football team carrying a very homophobic ad!
It is months since I am protesting about that but my fellow men don’t do much. So, I need the help from the world lgbt community!
Please spread the world!
If Barça was a gay team the Qatar Foundation would have never sponsored it! It is sponsoring it because in the West, the football it still remains very homophobic so it suits perfectly well a foundation from a very homophobic country.
I do not know what else to do! I feel so offended.
What could be done? The only thing I can imagine now it is just to spread the word! In this way we can do the opposite of what Qatar Foundation ad means. We can do that when the people around the world see the ad of QATAR FOUNDATION they do not think about this homophobic emirate but about the milions of lgbt people around the world against this homophobic ad in a tshirt!
