.- The political party Tierra y Libertad (Land and Freedom) led by suspended priest Marco Arana is demanding that the Peruvian government embrace the homosexual agenda by allowing same-sex âmarriageâ in the country.
âWe demand that the Peruvian State guarantee the human rights of lesbian, gay, transsexual and bisexual persons through specific affirmative lawsâ in order to fight the sexual orientation discrimination âthat unfortunately exists in our country,â the group said.
Aranaâs party, which seeks to nominate a candidate for the presidential elections, said it recognizes the existence of âdiverse sexual orientations such as heterosexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism and bisexuality. Likewise we recognize that multiple gender identities exist. In relation to this entire range of sexual orientations and gender identities, our principle is total equality in diversity, including marriage.â
The party claimed that Peruâs public norms are currently influenced by âreligious fundamentalismâ that ârestricts free sexual orientation and gender identity,â and called for âsexual education based on principles of diversity, equality and non-discrimination.â
