Gay Reporter Returns to Iraq

Gay Reporter Returns to Iraq


Reporter Michael Luongo checks in with part two of his series about what has and has not changed in the gay environments of Iraq since he last visited the country in 2007.

In part two of the series, published in Gay City News, Luongo writes, "I interview a man (pictured) on the Sadr City Death lists and others who talk of a gay cafe firebombing and machine gun attack, interview Iraqi and Western politicians on Iraqi views of violence against gays, and meet a young gay Iraqi who became friends with a gay U.S. soldier who patrolled his neighborhood and who hopes to help other gay Iraqis."

Read part one of the four-part series launched earlier this month. Part three will explore a gay safehouse, a gay cafe, and the perspective of a man tortured in Abu Ghraib who blames gay Iraqis for what he endured.
