I remember seeing this reported in the news. What a waste of life. Gay men should not be killed just for loving another man. Very provocative work.

Excellent work :clap: "There's a scapegoat around every corner", . . . a quote that might have arisen from any immoderate belief system.

this brings up a lot of emotion for me. i'm from california, where they just re-banned gay marriage. i was out there on election day campaigning against prop 8, i went to rallies, i donated as much as i could. i cried so hard the day after election day. to hear that these things happen makes me so angry and disappointed in people.

this is a very strong picture.

wow. great image and incredibly powerful message.

for some reason, I know this has nothing to do with the message, but this does remind me of Frida Kahlo

That's a beautiful, profound piece of work, *dsiqueiros! It is rare an image would cause me to shed a tear. Great job!

It's a very beautiful piece, but I do need to clarify about those two guys who were hung.

It's speculation that Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni were hung for being gay, but it was about a possible rape case involving another 13-year-old boy, there was no evidence that their acts were consensual. The International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission agreed that this wasn't a "gay issue." The issue more pressed in that case was execution of minors which violates international human rights laws.

Beautiful and disturbing...
It's jealousy of other people's love that brings out the worst in so many misguided souls... It's ironic that in a country and culture which idolizes martyrs, they have executed two people for love, thus making them into martyrs of love...

It's so sad that something like that happened, it's just plain horrible...


People who have those views are disgusting, and, maybe, even, should be the ones hanged... But that's me with my slightly more violent views, although shits like that diserve it...


Kudos for the homage!! :heart:
