IRAQ: Killed for Looking Gay

12 Mar

EmoI know a lot of the viewers to this site don’t particularly look or act “gay” – and here is a perfect example of why we are lucky that way. Kids in Iraq are actually being murdered for the way they dress or cut their hair, and it is happening right now.

Shi’ia militants are targeting youth who they perceive to be gay or emo, apparently for religious reasons.

The good folks at AllOut.org have set up an online petition calling on world leaders to intervene. It isn’t much, but every little bit helps.
