Have you experienced homophobia? We are all ears

Save the date: May 17th – The International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO)

Lebanon might not have a flashy gay parade with rainbow flags waving above our heads just yet. But many of us Lebanese, gay, straight or anywhere in between, are already actively engaged in a collective effort trying to raise awareness and fight homophobia.

Usually homophobia is just another by-product of ignorance. People remaining stuck with their pre-conceived ideas, their limited knowledge about how homosexuality plays out in real life. That’s where your stories, your personal experiences and your opinions can help a great deal.

Sharing some of your thoughts with the rest of us will help spread awareness within, as well as outside the community.

So here’s the deal: A coalition of Lebanese bloggers is asking everyone, gay or straight, to take a minute to think: How does homophobia affect you or someone you love? Write 150 words or less and email to raynbow.org@gmail.com You will be advancing the cause more than you think!
