Sexual Identity is a subject to comment on Syria-News website

One of Syria-News readers visited the site requesting some guidance about her female friend's case of sexual identity. The news website asked its visitors to comment and help the girl in a way of confirming the social belief of "psychological disorder" in these cases. This case of sexual identity is the first in years that is published in Syrian media.

Reading the comments, one can understand how ignorant and uneducated people are about all LGBT issues, but some comments reflect the social bigotry and discrimination against LGBT people.

This case of sexual identity is the first in years that is published in Syrian media.

Syria-News website is a semi-official news website that has published ‘media leaks’ which SANA, Syrian Arabic News Agency, did not want to publish on its official website during the protests in Syria.
