    Nice to see them happy and self-affirming.

    The three Kurds that I’ve known have all been closeted, self-hating and squirming.

  2. This emerging LGBT group is struggling and I don’t understand why it is not receiving support form international gay organizations.

    They should at least have a web site.

  3. We owe them help people. We have no idea what their life is like. From words to action.Me first of course.

      With internet spying technology available to police forces, it would be a very short time to locate the source of the website. This would place themselves in a great deal of danger. Even though Turkey has officially decriminalised homosexuality, there are countless stories of police harassment for other “crimes”.

  4. Very brave people! The International community should be assisting them.

    1. Pink News should publish more and more often on the matter.

  5. Supporting the film would be a small, easy way to help raise the profile of these people and win support.

  6. Where is the “honor” in killing your own son? To be more concerned about what other people think over loving your own children? Twisted.

  7. Being gay in easy in the Muslim world.

  8. Sorry, I meant being gay is not easy in the Muslim world.
