Being Gay In Iraq’s Bad News


British activist Peter Tatchell informs us that an Iraqi gay activist was gunned down at a barber shop this morning. This is only one of many, many murders carried out since the American invasion, most of which are carried out by organized death squads.

Tatchell wrote a good summation of the violence in today’s edition of the Guardian, which went to press before the most recent assassination.

After the jump, a video on the “sexual cleansing.” It’s very depressing and called Gay Life, Gay Death in Iraq.
