Alireza Fazeli Is the Gay Man Who Was Beheaded In Iran Recently, 13 Countries Where Being Gay Is Punishable by Death, Ryan Field Books

 Alireza Fazeli Is the Gay Man Who Was Beheaded In Iran Recently

I’ve already posted about this a few times and I’ll keep posting about it for as long as I can. This sort of thing cannot be ignored any longer. 

Alireza Fazeli was a beautiful young gay man in Iran who simply wanted to escape the horrors of Iran and live his life as an openly free gay man in the west. And he was so close to getting out of that hideous country, too. However, his own barbaric family beheaded him in what’s being termed an “honor killing.” 

But five days before he was due to leave Iran, his half-brother discovered paperwork for his military exemption detailing his sexuality. 6Rang’s executive director, Shadi Amin, said that triggered some relatives to take Monfared to a remote village and end his life.

Here’s more. The article goes into more back story about Fazeli and his family, and it also talks about what it’s like for gay people in Iran. For one thing, homosexuality is illegal and punishable by death. It’s also considered a psychological disease. 

His mother found the body and she was hospitalized for shock. 

May he RIP eternally. 

13 Countries Where Being Gay Is Punishable by Death

After I read the article above I was curious so I did a simple search and found this. 

The sentence for the crime of being gay in some countries is rooted in the interpretation of Sharia law, according to the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association’s (ILGA) report on state-sponsored homophobia.

Here’s more. The 13 countries include Yemen, Iran, and Nigeria. I highly suggest readig this.

“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.”
