Documentary 'Golf Alpha Yankee' Exposes Extreme Anti-Gay Laws In Iran: WATCH

Golf alpha yankee

The documentary Golf Alpha Yankee exposes extremely harsh anti-gay laws in Iran.

Homosexuality in Iran is legally punishable with imprisonment, torture and execution.

Golf Alpha Yankee "provides an intimate immersion into the world of LGBT people from Iran, who were forced to flee their home country, and are now waiting in limbo in conservative Turkey as asylum seekers with the United Nations. They hope to receive resettlement in the west, where they may one day be free to love without penalty."

A Kickstarter campaign has been set up to fund the post-production costs of the documentary

Watch the trailer for Golf Alpha Yankee, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. As an American I realize how privileged I am to not fear for my life for being gay. Stories like this remind me that for many worldwide we have so much more work to do. I am glad someone is sharing these stories through the medium of film. Bravo!

  2. It would be nice to get a recap of which Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaigns featured here were successful, every so often. I can't contribute to them all, but I'd still like to know which ones will be available.
