Residents light fires in homophobic protest at gay cruisers on Spain’s Costa del Sol

‘HOMOPHOBIC’: Fires lit by residents to put gay cruisers using an area of natural land in between Torremolinos and Malaga Airport

AN ugly battle has arisen between gay cruisers and some residents of Arraijanal, Malaga, leading to several homophobic attacks.

The Ciriana Association, a non-profit association for the preservation of animals and plants, operating in Churriana, Malaga, have reported there has been a series of attacks committed by some residents on homosexuals who use the area for cruising. 

Mari Cruz Torres, secretary of the Association said: “They insult them and set fire where they are.

CONDOM BINS: The association had placed bins in the area for cruisers, as so they can discard of used condoms and wipes.

“They do it to get them out of there. It is gross.” 

The most common form of homophobic protests has been residents setting fires in the woodlands, with the fifth one occurring this week. 

“We knew that the fires were lit by locals, but we thought it was because of us, asking for the protection of the area – but it is a homophobic issue. They want to kick gays out of there,” Torres said. 

The Association has now set up an awareness campaign to attack homophobia.
