With the hashtag #Metoogay, gays in turn tell about sexual violence on Twitter

Thousands of gays testify, Friday January 22 on Twitter, under the hashtag #Metoogay, the sexual violence they have suffered. This comes in the lineage of the #Metoo and #Metooinceste movements and after accusations of rape against an elected official from Paris and his spouse, which they deny. Appeared Thursday evening, the hashtag #Metoogay counted Friday morning among the trends in France on the social network.

These testimonies come a few days after the #Metooinceste movement, which has seen thousands of people recount the sexual violence suffered within the family circle in childhood or adolescence, in the wake of the accusations made by Camille Kouchner against Olivier Duhamel.

Friday morning, Marlène Schiappa, Minister responsible for Citizenship, assured of his “full support” victims of sexual violence. “If you wish, police officers, gendarmes and psychologists are available for you via http://arretonslesviolences.gouv.fr 24/24”, she wrote on Twitter.

Likewise, for SOS Homophobia, “the #Metoogay movement marks a necessary release of the voice of victims of sexual violence”. “These people must be heard and protected. We believe you and we support you”, wrote the association.
