Daryll Rowe, 27, from Brighton has been handed a life sentence after deliberately infected 10 men deliberately with HIV. The man shows no remorse as he was charged with causing bodily harm, and five for attempting to do so.

The man branded a "sociopath" and  "grotesque" by his victims was diagnosed with the virus on April 2015 in his home city of Edinburgh, he later went on to have sex with eight of the men he had met on the dating app, Grindr.


Daryll went on the deliberate spree to infect his victims, refusing treatment and doctors advise. He would insist on unprotected sex, claiming he was clean. When the men refused, he would tamper with their condoms, and decieved them into believing he practise safe sex.

While delivering the sentencing, Judge Christine Henson QC; 

You are the first individual to be sentenced for section 18 offences in the context of infecting others with HIV.

With the full knowledge of the risk you posed to others and the legal implications of engaging in risky sexual practices, you embarked on a deliberate campaign to infect other men with the HIV virus. Unfortunately for five of the men you met your campaign was successfu

They describe living with a life sentence as a result of your cruel and senseless acts. Many of those men were young men in their 20s at the time they had the misfortune to meet you. Given the facts of this case and your permissive predatory behaviour I cannot see when you would no longer be a danger to gay men.

In my judgment the offences, taken together, are so serious, that a life sentence is justified. You will potentially remain a danger to others for the rest of your life.


The largest microblogging platform in China, Sina Weibo is currently doing a clean up campaign, and it will involve removing 'homosexual contents on their platforms. The company released a statement on Friday on its clean up exercise, and said illegal contents, including manga, videos promoting violence and pornography will also be removed.

   Volker Beck of the Green party, who is also an open gay person celebrated the new bill on his lasy day in parliament.

Explaining while she voted No on the bill, Angela Merkel said that she understood marriage to be an institution between a man and a woman, however, she said she believes the new bill will help promote "more social peace."

Merkel also said that she has come to the conclusion that same-sex couple should be able to adopt children, which is something the new bill legalizes.

The recent campaign against homosexual in Chechnya has led authorities to detain 100 gay men, and also 3 men killed in the anti-gay campaign. 

The recent crackdown on homosexuals had led police in arresting local television authorities and religious figures who are gays. The report has since been denied by Alvi Karimov, Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov spokesperson. 


Alvi while speaking to  Interfax news agency,claims the recent information is "absolute lies and disinformation" and claims that “You cannot detain and persecute people who simply do not exist in the republic,” Alvi said that there are no gay people in Chechnya. He added;

If there were such people in Chechnya, the law-enforcement organs wouldn’t need to have anything to do with them because their relatives would send them somewhere from which there is no returning.

Russia project director for the International Crisis Group, Ekaterina Sokirianskaia while speaking to the Guardian said that the report is true, and she has received information about the issue from different sources in the past 10 days. She said that authorities have denied the incident, and instead information has been coming in from second hand or third hand sources, she said;

I have heard about it happening in Grozny [the Chechen capital], outside Grozny, and among people of very different ages and professions. It’s next to impossible to get information from the victims or their families, but the number of signals I’m receiving from different people makes it hard not to believe detentions and violence are indeed happening.

The Chechnya community is a strictly conservative region, so unlike other cases where gay families or activist put pressure on government when gays go missing, those suspected to be homosexual are disowned by their own families. If the community get to know there is a gay member in a family, other member of that family will find it extremely difficult to get married due to "shame."

A St Petersburg LGBT centre has set up an anonymous hotline for gay people living in Chechnya to help them evacuate from the Republic.




Mexico President,  Enrique Pena Nieto has proposed to legalise same-sex marriage across the country. The law which is only legal in the country's capital and few states in Mexico is now set to be acknowledged in the whole state.

Mr Pena Nieto makes the announcement during the country National day against Homophobia. The President on Twitter said; 

For an inclusive Mexico that recognises in diversity one of its biggest strengths." He used a hashtag in Spanish saying: "Without homophobia"

Then add the rainbow gay pride flag as an overlay on his Twitter profile.
