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

This is Ainara on behalf of MiraLES Magazine Madrid.

Our online magazine has the aim to promote lesbian visibility around the world, and obviously as a mean of information for the lesbian community. The issue is really spread out in Europe and South America, since the main language is Spanish, becoming the most read lesbian online magazine in Spain and South America. Now we have it in English too.

Next month we are doing a special number on Islam therefore all our sections will be oriented to cover women and lesbians life under this religion in order to create acknowledgement of this reality in Europe and South America.


I am in charge of "Lesbians around the world" section. Probably you are not aware of this section. Fortunately you can read some examples on MiraLES as there is an English version of them. This will give you an idea of the type of work we do. http://mirales.net/eng/?cat=12

So basically we are looking for a testimony, written on first person by a lesbian girl that would like to share her own experience. If any of you is interested please send us an email to the following address: directora@mirales.es

Many thanks in advance.

Regards from Spain.

MiraLES
