Courage

Via a post on PZ Myer’s blog, I have discovered the blog of a lesbian in Syria: A Gay Girl in Damascus.

She has courage, and a brave father. I hope that they both manage to come through the current troubles in that country.

Update 13 June 2011: Sigh, the internet strikes again. The lesbian in Damascus turns out to be a 40 year-old American married man studying in Scotland: Tom McMasters.

While I don’t like to be fooled, his idiotic actions have not helped genuine LGBT voices in the Middle East to be heard. Shame, shame on him.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
