Lebanon Speaks Up Loud Against Homophobia

Save the Date.
May 17: The International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)

Lebanon might not have a flashy gay parade with rainbow flags waving above our heads just yet. But many of us Lebanese, gay, straight or anywhere in between, are already actively engaged in a collective effort trying to raise awareness and fight homophobia.
More often than not, homophobia is just another by-product of ignorance. People remaining stuck with their pre-conceived ideas, their limited knowledge about how homosexuality plays out in real life.
That’s where your stories, your personal experiences and your opinions can help a great deal. Sharing some of your thoughts with the rest of us will help spread awareness within, as well as outside the community.
So here’s the deal: As Lebanon’s LGBT blogosphere, we are asking everyone, gay or straight, to take a minute to think: How does homophobia affect you or someone you love?
Write 150 words or less and email to: myidahostory@gmail.com
You will be advancing the cause more than you think!

    Ive never been to lebanon but I really want to go... I'm not gay or even a little bi curious, but It just really puts me off going to the country when you hear being gay is illegal. If a country is that backwards, then I really don't want to waste my money going. However all my lebanese friends say they go every summer and that they have the best time. But they are lebanese and it seems that only lebanese people go to lebanon. I really hope Lebanon catches up soon to the rest of the world so that I can come visit
