What is incomprehensible, talking about the coalition agreement,  is the fact that semi-governmental institutions such as Chata and CTDB, without a prior agreement or a public discussion, started selling Curaçao as a 'gay friendly island' with a view to economic benefits, and that Ministers feel called to support this sex form, whether or not under the assumption that they are doing it for the sake of fighting discrimination."
