Dispute in the lesbian and gay association: more lobby for lesbians

Constanze Korner had headed the Rainbow Center since 2013. Then she quit in protest at the Lesbian and Gay Association.

Constanze Korner looks back somewhat wistfully. "I was a very loyal team member for many years and I think I contributed a lot to bringing the topic of rainbow families to the top, not only for the Lesbian and Gay Association Berlin Brandenburg (LSVD BB), but also socio-politically," she says. Korner had worked there in the Rainbow Families project since 2005, played a key role in setting up the Rainbow Families Center in 2013 and has headed it ever since. But already in the course of the past year, she could identify less and less with the attitudes of the state association.

There he is again. Fabian Hinrichs. In 2012, he was Batics and Leitmayr’s assistant in Munich, Gisbert Engelhardt, in the "Tatort" film "The Deep Sleep," constantly serving up spiny ideas. The two commissioners didn’t like him, but the viewers liked him even more. His return was not possible, because Engelhardt had not survived the encounter with the perpetrator.

The Federal Supreme Court (BGH) has overturned a tenant-friendly ruling by the Berlin Regional Court. If a tenant does pay his rent debts after being given notice, this only eliminates the termination without notice, the BGH said, while an ordinary notice of termination declared in parallel remains in effect.

Germany closes the borders, and I have to laugh, somehow inappropriate. Like when it briefly overcomes you at the funeral and you laugh off, although the occasion demands seriousness. I have to laugh about closed German borders because they are nothing new. Germany has had closed borders for a long time – apart from the political ones.

Germany’s smallest table tennis club was not lucky after all after four and a half hours. A 2:3 defeat went down in the annals of the club that had just been founded a few months ago. What made the defeat for TTC Neu-Ulm at ASV Grunwettersbach more bearable was that it took place right at the top, i.e. in the first Bundesliga. A novelty in the history of German sports.
