Due to returning from vacation and pressing matters at work last week, I was unable to mark the 1st Year anniversary of the Iranian gay youth hangings. I did keep the emails I received from the British group, OutRage!
To mark the first anniversary of Iran’s hanging of two gay teenagers, Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni, gay campaign groups OutRage! and IDAHO have declared 19 July 2006 an International Day of Action Against Homophobic Persecution in Iran (IDAAHOPI).
They are calling for worldwide protests against the “murderous homophobic Iranian regime” and “in commemoration of Asgari and Marhoni, the two gay teenagers executed in the city of Mashhad on 19 July last year.”
19 July protests are confirmed in five cities: Amsterdam, London, Provincetown, San Diego and San Francisco.
How come there is no mention of the Iranian hangings at America’s Leading Gay Rights Organization’s website — Human Rights Campaign? Perhaps George Bush is too much of an enemy for them to battle and not Islamic fascist regimes actually murdering gays?
I don’t recall seeing much of this happening anywhere in the USA…
… of course I don’t live in the hateful and made-up world that the GayLeft Fundamentalists live in either…
