Streets Of Beirut: Speaking Loud Against Homophobia

While taking a walk with my boyfriend in the streets of Hamra last night, some colourful flyers caught our attention. They're in support of  the Leb IDAHO blog. Good work guys!

When I was 19, my father pulled a gun in my face

You're afraid of the dark? Try living in a closet

My mom tells me: Live you life, just don't let anyone know

I'm completely normal: The Lebanese law disagrees

Hehe relax Gaga. Flyers are always ripped on the Lebanese streets!! Hatred is everywhere...If we get angry, it won't lead us anywhere

@Karim We're doing a gr8 job! These flyers in this post are thanks to @Zoozel and his friend! They posted them in Hamra :)

@Lebagaga LMAO. yeah some flyers we posted in Gemmayze were also ripped. But that's still considered feedback and we're getting attention ;)

@BeirutBoy you're right... they were ripped because they moved something in people... they challenged the way they think and what they know about homosecuality...they ripped them becase the truth sometimes stings but nonetheless it is the truth
