LGBTQ People Speak of Sex Abuse In Syria

Here’s more about what’s happening on the global front. Not good, either.

Beirut, Lebanon – Gay and bisexual men and transgender women (GBT) have been subjected to increased violence at the hands of Syrian state and non-state actors… 

Here’s a link for more.  They get into a story about a 21 year old gay survivor that was captured by ISIS. His boyfriend was captured, and then killed by being thrown from a high building. 

These people are despicable. 

They’ll Kill You For Being Gay

Here’s another disturbing story about what happens to gay people living in places where the courts support Islamic Law…Sharia Law. This horrible, backward culture considers homosexuality illegal and gay people have to hide who they are, and live in total fear. 

For years Mohamed’s family tried to make him more like other boys – tougher, more “masculine”. They even sent him to have a female spirit driven out with hallucinogenic drugs. Eventually, writes Layla Mahmood, they decided to kill him.

The whole piece is definitely something that should be read so people see what’s happening in parts of the world, and so they understand it. Here’s the link. 



“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
