It is a truly poignant and moving documentary about the terrorisation and murder of Iraqi lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. >>>>>
How many people in Iraq are dying over a choice to remain chaste, protect their virtues and seek freedom from being occupied? This is an attempt to gain further attention and sell an independent film. These same open-minded attitudes are amongst the first to attempt to ridicule or protest against polygamy or virginity, family values and the like. There is no way for pro-LBGT to determine the true plight of gays in Iraq, for many gays have died simply because they were being occupied by a foreign nation and were caught in the middle of a war. This lends itself to exploitation. Just remember, under Saddam Hussein’s SECULAR Iraq, they felt free enough that they took their not-so-genetically-inclined attributes and flaunted about with themselves — and essentially thrived. If anything, it is the occupation that has caused their plight.
