Spain May Compensate Persecuted Homosexuals


Homosexuals persecuted in Spain under the dictatorship of General Francisco Franco may be compensated and given a pension of 800 euros per month. Last year the Spanish government legalised same-sex weddings and adoptions.

During the Franco era being homosexual was criminalised. Gays were either sent to prison or to "correction camps" where they were electrocuted and forced to watch heterosexual pornography.

Even with the fall of Franco many homosexuals were left in prisons or institutions. Some gays had 'criminal records' as late as 2001. A survivor of the era welcomed the move saying it was about remembering those who suffered under unjust laws.

This is nice and all, but how many straight guys are going to claim gayness in order for those 800 euros?

i'd assume they have records of who was sent to the camps.

"Some gays had 'criminal records' as late as 2001."

Jeeze. Read the article. 'nun goes straight to police'. Oh, and they were unhappy when Spain legalized ss couples and adoptions. Effemenent men 'a threat' to machos? Sounds like some people with real insecurity issues. Typical fascists.
