  1. I have a lesbian Iranian friend who lived most of her life in Iran and the stories she would share of life for LGBT in Iran is heart breaking. Truly. It is as much an emotional persecution s physical, seeing how you have no one to turn to for comfort and support.

  2. Lovely, and very moving. It's good to be reminded, as we fight our own battles in relative freedom, how much worse challenges our brothers and sisters face in many places.

  4. My heart breaks for our brothers & sisters that have to live a life of fear & repression.

    Stay strong. Don't ever give up hope.

  6. This is why we as a global LGBT need to realize we're a family and always stick together unified. Thanks to our brave Persian LGBT!
