The Association of Homosexuals of Acre (Ahac) issued a statement of repudiation this Friday (2) against the installation of special chemical toilets for the LGBT+ public, during the Family Carnival, promoted by the Municipality of Rio Branco.
In the note, the entity says that the LGBT+ population does not need the capital of Acre “to become a Nazi Germany of Adolf Hitler, with its genocidal, separatist culture of peoples, cultures and identities” and recalls that “there is no law in Brazil, in the municipality of Rio Branco, in the State of Acre, or anywhere in our Brazilian federation, which legislates which bathrooms people have to use for their special needs”.
The association’s text adds, clarifying: “LGBT+ are not in the PCD quota, they are not extraterrestrials or different from being human to go to the bathroom, especially in a non-binary festival such as carnival parties. This statement about separating bathrooms is strictly Homophobic, Transphobic, and Racist. If this prevails, in a while we will have classrooms for LGBT+, queues at the bank for LGBT+, hospital beds only for LGBT+, supermarket cashiers only for LGBT+, SO AS A CONSEQUENCE of this culture of believing that we are abnormal people and deserve this type of exclusion, which constitutes “apartheid”.
The entity asks the Federal and State Public Ministries, the Public Defender’s Office of the State of Acre and the Brazilian Bar Association to speak out and assist the LGBT+ public.
