The fight for LGBT rights
Susanna Griso is very active in the fight for LGBT rights, which we can see on her social media. The presenter of ‘Espejo Público’ was very close to her brother, who died due to AIDS, and it was one of the hardest blows of her life. “I had a brother who died of AIDS, that experience was very painful and I know perfectly what it is like to come out of the closet, the rejection and the fact of having and suffering from a disease that was so stigmatized at that time like HIV,” she explained. That’s why Susanna is so committed to the collective and raises her voice for them whenever she can.
The current situation in Spain
Susanna is aware that Spain is a privileged country in terms of LGBT rights, far ahead of other European countries like Poland or Hungary. However, she is also aware that Europe does not represent the world, and there are countless places where LGBT rights are not respected, but are persecuted and punished with the death penalty. “That fight is still going on,” the journalist confessed.
The importance of raising her voice
The death of her brother was a painful experience, but Susanna knows how important it is to keep fighting for the collective. She knows that Spain is a privileged country, but there are still many places where LGBT rights are not respected, and that’s why she raises her voice for them whenever she can.
