Hello ... I'm from Iran .. As we know homosexuality is illegal in Iran and is punished very hard.For the first time in Iran's history the famous Iranian singer "Googoosh"singing in her new album about free love for all and in the background you will see a film about two lesbiens wich loves eachother...It is the first person ever in the iranien history who dares in a video fighting against homophobia.You can watch her new song "Behesht"named paradis on youtube.I really hope that she will get a price for her power and her mission for iranien homosexuals.
Greetings from Berlin
