GiL comes to GiB with a seven-post series retracing his experience being arrested in Lebanon under charges of homosexual activity, followed by charges of drug use.
Lucky he took only a week for it.
Only it takes more than a week to recover. GiL decided to write it down to help himself move on from this dreadful experience.
As a testament of GiB’s full support for GiL, for the next couple weeks GiB will be the outlet for his story. A tribune for his cause. A loudspeaker for his call.
But GiL’s wake up call is actually two-fold:
- One to the local GiB community saying: “Stay Careful and Hang in There”,
- and the other to the rest of the world out there: “Beirut Ain’t Gay Heaven on Earth, Dude”.
… Two messages that were well relayed by Helem at the IGLTA (gay travel) conference that was held in Beirut two weeks ago .
Now without further ado… the seven-post series by GiL.
