The talking points this weekend is whether or not a member of the Guardia Civil in Majorca should be allowed to live with his homosexual partner in the Guardia Civil barracks as a couple. Yesterday the Federation for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transexuals along with the Guardia Civil Association, demanded “equal rights for homosexual couples in the Guardia Civil.” In an official statement both associations said that the norms and regulations on which accommodation in Guardia Civil quarters is awarded to couples “discriminates against homosexuals.” For the first time ever, a member of the Guardia Civil will next week apply for permission for his partner to move in to his barracks accommodation with him. The application was yesterday backed by the two associations which praised the Civil Guard's determination.
