An interview conducted for
iDeas 4 Minorities
In a democratic country you have the right to vote. In Slovenia, on the 20th of December, a referendum will be organized about gay marriage. I met a Ljubljana citizen who is studying in Paris. She decided to participate in this referendum from France and wanted to speak about her iDeas 4 Minorities.
1/ Would you like to introduce yourself?
Through this blog, I have discovered that I love writing. It is a way to express myself. I chose Internet instead of a diary because I want to make my thoughts visible and to help my followers somehow. However I do not want to make my website a self-promotion. I am not posting every thing on Internet, there are secrets I keep for myself.
2/ What is the situation for homosexuals in Slovenia?
Currently, the government is planning a referendum because of a law adopted in February. A large majority of Members of Parliament (MPs) opened marriage for lesbians and gays at the begging of 2015.
3/ What will happen for Slovenes in few days?
4/ Why do you care about this gay marriage referendum?
5/ From your answers above, what have you planed to do for gay and lesbian rights?
6/ Do you think a lot of Slovenes care about gay marriage?
However, the opposition in my country is not so strong as it was in France in 2013. We do not have strong demonstrations like the Manif Pour Tous or little riots in front of the national assembly.
I just hope that Slovenes will vote and that they will vote in favor of gay marriage.
