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.
Regards
Ali Azawi

Hi All
I am Gay from Kurdistan/Iraq - Sulaymaniyah
I wanna tell you some information about been gay in my country
been gay is meaning you are a very (Cheap, ridiculous)person
every one will look to you like a very dirty thing if they know you are gay.

most dangerous is if your family know , may be they will kill you direct without thinking or they will kick you out
and if the government know they will put you at Prison like you did a biggest Crime in your life .

really I am dreaming about going out and go to country like Canada or USA but it seem that will stay dream for ever
I am communication engineer and I am working in the telecommunication company , if they know may be I'll be Tramp.

so what do you think about our story?

I shocked when I was in Iraqi Kurdistan region which is a secular part of iraq and its a very liberal place compare with other islamic countries, freedom is unlimited you could feel that you are not in east its almost like Europe! except only one point wich is homosexuality! Iraqi kurdistan region have a separate law and constitution which is most of the paragraph based on French and Scandinavian constitution with a little islamic liberal law but for the gay person still they use that paragraph of iraqi law against homosexual which is consider gay act as a crime and sickness and sentence them 2-4 years jail!!! I ask every one and ILGA to write a protest letter to the kurdish administration take away that craime and sickness in that paragraph against homosexual and freedom of homosexuality from 18 years of age ! there are some hidden gay organization in some cities but they need support from us ! if you care about others gay people in diffrent part of the world we appreciate if you write a protest letter to
