Päivi Räsänen: Finland’s ex-interior minister goes on trial for anti-LGBT+ hate speech

Euronews says Finland’s former interior minister has gone on trial in Helsinki accused of inciting anti-LGBT+ hate speech.

Päivi Räsänen, an MP of the Christian Democrats party, is accused of describing homosexuality as a “disorder of psychosexual development” and labelling homosexuals as “dysfunctional”.

The charges relate to comments posted on Twitter in 2019 in which she criticised the Finnish Lutheran Church for associating itself with a Gay Pride event.
