The Sexual Cleansing of Iraq

Part One. Queer Fear 2 - the sequel to 2007's Queer Fear: Gay Life, Gay Death in Iraq. In Iraq the killings continue. LGBT people are being murdered by Shia death squads, now increasingly integrated into the forces of the Iraqi state. Amd encouraged by leading Shia clerics. Meanwhile the democratically-elected government denies there is a problem.

Part Two. What is being done to protect LGBT people in Iraq from the death squads. How you can help provide safe houses and save lives.

Please support Iraqi-LGBT

The immediate urgent priority is to Support and Donate Money to LGBT activists in Iraq in order to assist their efforts to communicate information about the wave of homophobic murders in Iraq to the outside world.

Funds raised will also help provide LGBTs under threat of honour killing with refuge in the safer parts of Iraq (including safe houses and food), and assist efforts help them seek asylum abroad. Donations to Iraqi LGBT are not tax-deductible for income tax purposes.
