This is a very important video. In this video, I have documented some of the suffering that Iraqi homosexuals facing in everyday life.
The government does not care about their suffering, because they consider them as a sick people or mentally ill, which is not true. In addition the Iraqi police have the right to arrest them and film then to publish it on internet and it goes beyond sexual harassments. The content of these videos are very sensitive that’s why it is private.
All we asking for right now is more pressuring on Iraqi government especially when it comes to homosexual rights. The ignorance of all international organizations is not acceptable, people are facing death and different threats because the human rights organizations do not show any attention and do not highlight the suffering of homosexual people in Iraq and in other Islamic countries.
Your help is needed.
