Iranian and gay: silent or in exile

BBC interview with 'Farrokh', a gay Iranian teacher and activist in exile in Turkey.


I am an Iranian Gay. I am in the closet. I want to inform the other people, specially from middle east, about the gay people. We were born this way! Please, treat us as other str8 persons! We are the same as others, sexual orientation is just one part of each personality!

This video was produced to mark the The Day of Silence, 16 April, which originated with the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network's (GLSEN) in the US as an annual day of action to protest the bullying and harassment of LGBT students and their supporters.
