it´s just disgusting, how some people have to...kill..the difference. I really like your art. Browsing it right now and this cought my eyes. I´ve seen something in the TV about this and firstly didn´t believe it.
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.
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...
