War Torn Nation No Longer So Queer Friendly...

‘NY Times’ Spends Time With Gay Iraqis

We’re absolutely astonished this morning. The mainstream media – namely: the New York Times – has turned its attention to the plight of gay Iraqis. Here’s but a taste of Cara Buckley’s piece:

…Until recently, Mohammed and many of his gay friends went one step further, slipping into lovers’ houses late at night. And, until the American invasion, they said, Iraqi society had quietly accepted them.

But being openly gay is not an option in the new Iraq, where the rise of religious extremism has left Mohammed and his gay friends feeling especially vilified.

Wait, the American-led invasion didn’t bring peace and queer prosperity? Preposterous!
