Being Gay: It Could Cost You Your Life in Iran

In light of the Holocaust of Nazi Germany, in which hundreds of thousands of gays and lesbians, bisexual and transgender people, were murdered, killed, because of who they are, it is fascinating to read of those who are GLBT being killed because of who they are in Iran. The story of Mehdi Kazemi is truly heart-wrenching as he struggles with the courts in the Netherlands and the U.K. in terms of seeking asylum in the U.K. rather than go back to Iran, where he would be killed, just like his boyfriend.

Being killed simply because of who we are: this is wrong.

It is time to change.
