Original Headline: Video: Iran’s Punishment for Gays


See Box Turtle Bulletin for explanation on how this ended up at Gays Without Boarders.  Posting this without checking further was lazy and out of character for XGW.  We apologize for inadvertently mischaracterizing the nature of the video, but nonetheless it is still an awful example of cruelty.

The sentence for consensual sexual acts between adults of the same sex in Iran it being thrown off a roof.  This is not easy to watch so be warned.  We have included it because, as with all human rights abuses, it should be impossible to ignore.
