Worldwide, hundreds of people are in prison or awaiting trial for allegedly violating laws that punish those who are born gay, lesbian or bisexual.

The prison sentences that have been imposed range up to nine years, which is actually toward the lower end of punishments that are on the books in the 70-plus countries where homosexuality is currently illegal.

In the past, this blog tried to keep track of individual cases of LGBTI prisoners and defendants, but the number of cases turned out to be too great to continue. Now, the blog will provide an overview of the most repressive countries and, when possible,  will update the list with news of arrests that violate the human rights of LGBTI people.

Finding out about specific cases remains difficult, especially in countries without a free press. Even though this list is depressing, it provides only a narrow window into one of many types of injustice affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, sometimes with fatal results. (See the section “Other injustices facing LGBTI people” below and the separate article “10 nations where the penalty for gay sex is death.”)

At present, the most egregious violators of LGBTI peoples’ human rights include these countries:

  • Egypt (“one of the world’s biggest jailers of gay men,” where LGBTI community leaders estimate that as many as 500 LGBTI people have been sent to prison.)
  • Saudi Arabia (In one recent year, religious police reportedly arrested and convicted a total of 260 people.)
  • Morocco (Dozens of trials for same-sex intimacy are cited by LGBTI rights advocates each year, but are rarely reported in the media.)
  • Nigeria (Dozens of arrests have been reported, as well as several mass arrests, but Nigerian media rarely follow up with reports about any subsequent trials).
  • Tunisia (Arrests and trials of Tunisian citizens on homosexuality charges occur often, despite being strongly criticized by local and international human rights groups.)



Algerian law provides for prison sentences of two months to two years for homosexual activity.

“In July 2020, 44 people in Constantine province were arrested and charged for allegedly organising and participating in a ‘same-sex wedding’ between two men. In September 2020 two individuals from the group were sentenced to three years in prison, and two others to one year in prison each, despite the group reportedly claiming that the event was a birthday party, and not a wedding.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Burundian law provides for prison sentences of three months to two years for homosexual activity.

“In October 2017, several outlets reported that numerous people had been arrested for ‘engaging in homosexuality’ and forced to pay exorbitant bribes for their release after a ‘hunt’ was announced that month.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)

LGBT prisoners often were imprisoned at Yaounde Central Prison. Only three gay prisoners remained there as of summer 2018. They were released in September 2018, but by December 2020, a total of 11 LGBT people were serving homosexuality-related sentences in Yaoundé. (Photo courtesy of Camerpress.com)

Cameroonian law provides for sentences of up to five years for homosexual activity.

Not Alone Project

As part of its Not Alone / Pas Seul Project, this blog and its donors assisted three gay prisoners in Yaoundé in 2018, three gay prisoners in northern Cameroon in 2019, and two lesbians and a trans woman imprisoned in eastern Cameroon in 2020. All had been sentenced under the nation’s anti-gay law. As of May 2021, a total of 11 LGBT people were serving time in Yaoundé under the nation’s anti-homosexuality law. The Pas Seul Project raised money to pay their fines so they could leave prison early.

5 gay-rights arrests; 6 days in jail and counting
April 2018: Five LGBTI rights advocates in western Cameroon were arrested and held for days at the local police station on suspicion of homosexuality.

Cameroon: Four gay men arrested, beaten in Kekem
June 2020: Police in the western region of Cameroon arrested four men  who were beaten until they acknowledged that they were gay. They  pleaded guilty and were given light sentences (a month in prison for one man, fines of about $91 for the others). 

Teenage boys arrested

In February 2021, police in eastern Cameroon arrested 12 boys for suspected homosexuality after some of them were seen kissing near a popular restaurant. After parents and LGBTQ rights activists intervened, they were released.

Trans celebrity Shakiro arrested in Douala, Cameroon

Online celebrity Shakiro and her friend Patricia were arrested Feb. 8, 2021, and imprisoned awaiting trial on homosexuality charges. 

In May, Shakiro and Patricia were sentenced to five years in prison.

Arrests during HIV/AIDS training session

In March 2021, police in western Cameroon arrested 13 people on homosexuality charges in connection with an anti-AIDS training session. After police were contacted by human rights advocates, all but two of the arrestees were released the next day.


Egyptian police typically arrest LGBT people on charges of “sexual immorality” or “debauchery,” which Egyptian courts have ruled includes consensual homosexual activity.

One of the world’s biggest jailers of gay men
Leaders of the underground LGBTI community in Egypt say that their country has become one of the world’s biggest jailers of gay men, with as many as 500 behind bars on “morals” charges. The New York Times estimates that “at least 250 lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have been arrested in a quiet crackdown” since 2013.
Egyptian police forces arrested about 76 LGBT Egyptians in October 2017 in connection with the display of rainbow flags at a concert in New Cairo.Human Rights Watch stated in October 2017:
“In Egypt, police routinely round up gay and bisexual men and transgender women, actively seeking them out and entrapping them on dating apps and through social media. One Cairo-based organization has documented the prosecution of at least 34 people for consensual same-sex conduct in the past 12 months.”Police made several more arrests after rainbow flag was hoisted during a concert on Sept. 22, 2017.
In 2016, the advocacy group Solidarity with Egypt LGBTQ+ published a tally of 274 victims of anti-gay trials and hate crimes that made the news. Some of those arrests are listed below:
14 unidentified men arrested in gym/sauna
On Oct. 11, 2013, 14 men were arrested for allegedly engaging in gay sex at a gym/sauna in the El-Marg district in northeastern Cairo. No report of their release has been received, so they are included here as still in prison.
4 men sent to prison for 3 to 8 years for ‘deviant parties’
A court sentenced four men to up to eight years in prison on April 7, 2014, for practicing homosexuality, a judicial official said. Prosecutors had accused the men of holding “deviant parties” and dressing in women’s clothes. Three were sentenced to eight years and the fourth to three years in prison.
3 to 9 years in prison after police raid a party
Ten people were arrested in November 2013 at party in a residential area of the western Cairo suburb known as 6 October City. One male defendant was sentenced to nine years in prison; other male defendants, to three years. One woman was acquitted.> GAMBIA

Gambian laws provides for prison sentences of up to 14 years for homosexual activity among men; up to 5 years for women; and life sentences for “serial offenders” and people spreading HIV through gay sex.

“In 2019, media outlets reported that up to 16 Gambians were arrested for “alleged homosexuality”, and while most were released, a small number have faced incarceration into 2020 and alleged torture, before being acquitted. Further, a Senegalese national accused of being gay was arrested in June 2020. Due to the postponement of trial dates and limited reporting on the matter, the outcome of this case is unknown. …” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Ghanaian law provides for sentences of up to three years for homosexual activity.

“Several arrests of adults for consensual same-sex sexual acts have been documented in recent years. Detentions oftentimes involve psychological abuse, damaging media exposure and medical examinations. Local police are reportedly known to entrap and lure LGBT individuals (predominantly gay men) through social media. In September 2020, local media indicated that 11 lesbian women were arrested in the city of Aflao, in the Volta region, after a video of two of them reportedly engaging in sexual acts became known. (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)

In March 2021, Ghana police arrested 14 LGBTQ people at an event what they mistaken thought was a “lesbian wedding”. The arrestees were released after police realized the event was actually a birthday party.

In May 2021, Ghana police  arrested 21 people during a raid on a training session on  documenting violations of the human rights of LGBTQ Ghanaians.


The country as a whole does not have a law against same-sex intimacy, but two large provinces and several cities do. These are the punishments they call for:

  • Aceh Province: 100 lashes, up to eight years in prison.
  • South Sumatra Province: Punishment unspecified.
  • Padang Panjang, West Sumatra: Up to three months.
  • Pariaman, West Sumatra: Punishment unspecified.
  • Tasikmalava, West Java: Punishment unspecified.
  • Banjar District, West Java: Punishment unspecified.

Arrests have included these:


Iranian law provides for the death penalty in some cases of consensual same-sex relations both for men and women. Overall, Iran imposes the death penalty more often than any other country except China, but it is unclear how often — or if — it is applied for consensual homosexual activity.

24 reported arrested and detained
Arrests were made Oct. 8, 2013. The 25 people arrested were reportedly blindfolded and taken to an unknown location. Within a few days they were freed on bail to await trial.

Revolutionary guards in Iran’s Kermanshah province made at least 24 arrests (“dozens”) at a birthday party. They claimed that the arrests resulted from a lengthy investigation into a “a network of homosexuals and devil-worshippers.” In an update several weeks after the arrests, activist analyst Scott Long noted that “these cases can drag on for years without a hearing.” He added, “My guess is that a lot of [the people arrested] have gone into hiding (i.e. moved to other cities) or, since Kermanshah is near the border, crossed into Iraq — or even to Turkey to claim refugee status.”

“There have been reports of executions by hanging for consensual same-sex sexual relations and alleged same-sex rapes. There have been
several confirmed reports of state-led raids on private parties followed by mass arrests of those suspected of homosexuality. In September 2020, 6Rang released a report with testimonies of people who had been arrested by the police because of their diverse sexual orientation or gender identity.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Under Malawian law, homosexual activity is punishable by up to 14 years in prison.

3 men serving prison terms of 10 to 14 years
LGBTQI advocates fault police actions

Amon Champyuni, Mathews Bello and Musa Chiwisi were convicted and sentenced in 2011 for violating Malawi’s anti-sodomy law. They are now serving sentences ranging from 10 to 14 years. The country’s High Court supposedly is reviewing the constitutionality of the anti-sodomy law, and Malawi’s justice minister has responded by instructing police to stop making arrests for alleged violations of it. But the three men remained in prison on the basis of the previous convictions while the High Court reviewed their cases.

Under Malaysian law, a prison sentence of up to 20 years is provided for “intercourse against the order of nature,” including homosexual activity.

Opposition politician stymied by prison sentence for sodomy
A Malaysian court in March 2014 sentenced opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to five years in prison on sodomy charges, overturning an earlier acquittal and ending his hopes of contesting a local election. He was offered asylum abroad, but declined. His conviction was politically motivated, he said.

In 2018, after a new prime minister took office, Anwar was set free. In the fall of 2018, as president of the People’s Justice Party, Anwar said Malaysia’s anti-sodomy laws are unfair, outdated, and need to be reviewed.


Mauritanian law provides for the death penalty for homosexual activity between men, but no one has actually been executed, at least not since the 1980s. For lesbian activity, the law provides a penalty of three mnths to two years in prison.

In January 2020, 10 men were arrested at a suspected “gay wedding” that turned out to be a birthday party. Eight of the men were given a two-year prison sentence that was reduced to six months with a warning that the original sentence would be restored for anyone who “reoffended” within the next five years.


Under Moroccan law, a prison sentence of up to three years is provided for homosexual activity.

Dozens of arrests go unreported in Morocco
Most homosexuality-related trials in Morocco are not publicized. According to an Associated Press account, the Ministry of Justice reported that 81 such trials occurred in 2011. The Moroccan LGBT activist group Kifkif says that more than 5,000 homosexuals have been put on trial since the country’s independence in 1956. That’s an average of about 86 per year. This blog has not been able to verify those figures.

The LGBT support group Aswat said that it tallied 19 prosecutions on homosexuality charges during the first three months of 2016.

A report from the Chief Public Prosecutor stated that 170 people faced homosexuality charges in 2018.

Nigerian law provides for sentences of up to 14 years for homosexual activity. In parts of northern Nigeria where sharia law applies, the death penalty can be applied for same-sex intercourse between males, at least in theory. A 2014 national law provides for prison sentences of 14 years for getting married to a member of the same sex and 10 years for belonging to a gay organization, supporting same-sex marriages, or making a public display of same-sex affection.

Compiling a comprehensive list of people incarcerated for violations of anti-gay laws in Nigeria is currently impossible. Nigerian newspapers typically report arrests and sometimes the opening of trials of LGBT people, but not the outcome of those events.

Police arrested 57 men on homosexuality charges at a birthday party in August 2018.

Police arrested 42 Nigerians on homosexuality changes at an anti-HIV event in July 2017.

Arrests linked to the “Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Law”

A wave of dozens of arrests were reported during an anti-gay frenzy related to the enactment of the so-called Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Law in early January 2014. That sweeping law provides for 10-year prison sentences for public displays of same-sex affection, belonging to a gay organization, or supporting same-sex marriages. About 32 were reported arrested in southern Nigeria — the Christian section of the country. No further information or updates were available. For purposes of this list, half of them are assumed to have been freed without further legal constraints; of the other half, six are assumed to be in prison awaiting trial and 10 freed on bail awaiting trial.

Among the reported cases:

Nigerian police often launch raids and make mass arrests at parties where informants have alleged that that homosexuals are present:


Under Pakistani law, a sentence as harsh as life in prison is provided for “carnal intercourse against the order of nature”.

“In August 2020 an arrest warrant was reportedly issued for a trans man who married a cisgender woman, for what authorities viewed as a same-sex wedding. [In] October, a Pakistan-based digital media platform reported that two lesbian women were “arrested by the police after their relatives and friends reported about their relationship and marriage plan.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Same-sex intimacy is legal in Russia, but the country’s anti-“gay propaganda” law sometimes leads to the arrest of people who publish positive information about homosexuality.

The greatest human rights abuses against LGBT people have occurred in Chechnya, where about 100 allegedly LGBT people were reportedly detained in early 2017 and at least three reportedly were killed.


Under sharia law, the death penalty can be imposed for homosexual activity in Saudi Arabia.

News of arrests for homosexuality is rarely reported in Saudi Arabia, but the practice is reportedly common. In one year recently, religious police reportedly arrested and convicted a total of 260 people on homosexuality-related charges, including charges of cross-dressing, wearing make-up and seeking homosexual encounters.

35 arrested at party
Police and security officers of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice arrested 35 people on April 4, 2014, at a party near Jeddah that was allegedly for homosexuals. No further word of the arrestees has been received. For this list, with some basis in previous incidents, it is presumed that 20 of them remain in prison and 15 were foreigners who were soon deported.

Twitter user sentenced to 3 years
Prison and whipping for seeking men online

In July 2014, a 24-year-old man was sentenced to three years in prison and 450 lashes by a court in Saudi Arabia for using his Twitter account to meet with gay men.


Under Senegalese law, a prison sentence of one to five years is provided for homosexual activity.

Ten suspected homosexuals were arrested in September 2020 by religious militia in the holy city of Touba. They were released and escaped to other countries with assistance from local and international LGBTQ rights activists.

Seven men were sentenced to prison after they were arrested at an October 2020 celebration that police claimed was a gay wedding. Two of them were sentenced to three months; five men got six-month sentences.


Under an 1861 British colonial law that is still in effect in Sierra Leone, a prison sentence of 10 years to life is provided for homosexual activity.

“In 2019, two men were reported to the police by their family members in Sierra Leone, after being caught having sex in their house. The couple was able to escape and managed to leave the country before they were arrested. As of November 2020, their location is uncertain.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Homosexual activity in Sri Lanka is punishable by a prison sentence of up to 10 years.

“In 2020, there have been several reports of arrests and prosecutions
pursuant to Articles 365 and 365A of the Penal Code, with forced anal
examinations reportedly used in the gathering of evidence of
homosexuality.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Under Tanzanian law, at least on paper, same-sex intimacy between men is punishable by prison sentences of 30 years to life.

The Tanzanian government began an anti-homosexuality campaign in 2016, including arrests of people seeking to fight HIV/AIDS in the LGBT community. Dozens of men suspected of being gay have been arrested and taken hospital for anal exams that allegedly confirm their homosexuality.

In July 2016 sexual lubricants were banned by the government on the theory that they encourage homosexuality.

In September 2017, eight men and 12 women were arrested in a hotel in Zanzibar, where they were attending an HIV/AIDS training session.

In October 2017, police in Dar es Salaam arrested 12 men on homosexuality charges, accusing them of “promoting homosexuality.” In fact, they were lawyers and activists preparing for a lawsuit seeking to reopen HIV clinics that the government had shut down.


The laws of Togo provide for prison sentences of one to three years for homosexual activity.

“In recent years, several arrests have been documented, with reports
including instances of police harassment, blackmail and arbitrary
detention.” (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Under Article 230 of the Tunisian penal code, same-sex intimacy is punishable by up to three years in prison. In addition, people convicted of intentionally and publicly promoting “indecency” can be imprisoned for six months and fined 48 dinars (about US $30).

Among the recent incidents in Tunisia:

Two men were sentenced to two years in prison for sodomy in June 2020.



Under Turkmen law, “sexual intercourse between men” is punishable by up to five years in prison.

A Turkmen entertainer identified as “G.S.” was sentenced in May 2020 to serve two years in prison for homosexual activity. An unspecified number of co-defendents were sentenced at the same time but no further information about them was available.


Ugandan law provides for up to a life sentence for same-sex intercourse. (The new Anti-Homosexuality Act of 2014, before it was overturned, also provided for a life sentence for anyone who “touches another person with the intention of committing the act of homosexuality.” That law also provided for sentences of five to seven years for “promoting homosexuality” and for any action that “in any way abets homosexuality and related practices.”)

Despite that law, arrests for homosexuality are rare in Uganda. Other forms of homophobic harassment are common.

In the spring of 2020, police arrested 23 people on charges of violating Covid-19 lock-down rules by staying at a homeless shelter for LGBT Ugandans. A total of 19 of them were held in prison for 50 days without access to an attorney or a chance to apply for bail.


Yemeni law variously provides for “whipping of 100 strokes” for homosexual intercourse by unmarried people, or up to a year in prison; death by stoning if married; and up to three years in prison for lesbian sex.

“In October 2020, a newspaper reported that a man had been punished
with 100 lashes in a public square after the Specialised First Instance Criminal Court of Sana’a (a court reportedly run by Houthi militia), found him guilty of practicing sodomy with another man (who was himself sentenced to death for other crimes). (State Sponsored Homophobia, ILGA, December 2020 update)


Zambian law provides for up to 14 years in prison for homosexual activity (“acts against the order of nature”).

A gay couple was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2018 for “acts against the order of nature”. The sentence was affirmed on appeal in 2019. Along with about 3,000 other convicts, they were pardoned in May 2020 as part of Zambia’s Africa Day celebrations.


Here are some ways to give a boost to the struggle to release these prisoners and to repeal all anti-homosexuality laws:

Readers, please suggest other steps to take.


Of necessity, the lists above omit many types of injustices that confront LGBTI people worldwide. Here are a few of the omissions:

The lists above do not include people who were executed in one of the seven countries where homosexual activity is a capital crime. (In Iran, three people were executed in 2011 for homosexual activities, according to Amnesty International.)

The lists do not include the dozens of gay men who reportedly have been killed by death squads in Iraq without any government interference and sometimes with help from police.

The lists do not include the many people who die of AIDS each year in countries where LGBTI people are excluded from HIV prevention programs. Nor do they include the countless heterosexual women who die of AIDS after contracting HIV from their closeted gay or bisexual husband in countries where homosexuals are stigmatized.

The lists do not include lesbians and gays, such as Tyler Clementi of Rutgers University in the United States, who commit suicide because of the scorn they suffer or the unwarranted shame they feel because of who they are.

The lists do not include people killed by bigots because they are gay, such as Matthew Shepard in the United States in 1998, and an alleged 249 people in Peru during 2006-2010.

They do not include people killed because they are working for gay rights, such as Daniel Zamudio in Chile and Thapelo Makutle in South Africa in 2012 and perhaps David Kato in Uganda in 2011.

They also do not include lesbian and bisexual women who suffer “corrective rapes” or sexual assaults because of their sexual orientation.

  • Great work you’re doing Colin. One question: You concede that your figure of 27 is probably an extreme understatement of the number of people who are behind bars or awaiting trial on anti-homosexuality charges. But if you had to hazzard a guess – and allowing for detentions on other pretexts such as loitering, lewd behaviour, inappropriate touching, same-sex co-habiting, publishing pro-gay statements, corrupting public morals, outraging public decency, licentious dancing, cross-dressing, wearing v-necks (!), etc, etc. – do you think the actual figure would be well into hundreds, or even thousands?

    • It would be purely a guess, and not even a very educated guess, because there’s so little to go on — I would guess 100s. So little is known about what happens in Saudi Arabia, but I’ve seen an unconfirmed report of 100 actions against LGBT people in a year. Multiply that unconfirmed number by the number of other strict Muslim countries without a free press. Then add in detentions on pretexts such as those you list. We can easily imagine a total near 1000 or more.

      • I guess there’s far more than 1000… Much much more… So saying “19 in prison for being gay, 15 more awaiting trial” is just confusing and diminishing the importance.

        • Hi, Charles,

          I almost agree with you. As the article stated, “Listing 37 people is probably an extreme understatement of the number of people who are behind bars or awaiting trial on anti-homosexuality charges, but finding out about specific cases is difficult, especially in countries without a free press.” But can you provide any specifics that the article could include? Conceivably a headline could say more, but it would need to be based on more than a guess.

  • I agree with these laws. America was founded as a Christian nation. People today spit on our ancestors graves by letting this country fall apart the way it is. And now it the “in” thing to be homosexual or bisexual. I’m not the morality police but it doesn’t take a genius to know that homosexuality is immoral and unnatural. Now in America people are forced chemicals and endocrine disrupters hidden in food, drinks and “medicines” that is changing the male brain making them to act and think more feminine and inhibiting testosterone. More people then ever are becoming gay and it’s not because they were born that way.. Do your homework even animals frogs and polar bears are becoming transgender from the contaminants in the water.
    Each country and nation is its own and no other country really have no business interfering with another country’s laws but everyone knows Americans can’t mind their own business with their “white hero” complex. And that’s not racist “white hero” is an actual term. I don’t know that these people should be murdered but they certainly need to be told that it’s wrong.. When you break the law their are consequences, they knew the law and decided to break it but now they don’t want to deal with the concequences. Would this be a story if it was about people imprisoned for stealing food? Probably not a story, and yet food is a necessity, but having sexual intercourse out of lust is not a necessity and yet these lusty people chose to break the law and do so.. It’s not about love. I love my friends dearly but I would not engage in sexual acts with them. In short, this isn’t a story. Being gay is immoral and how a country deals with that is its own issue. You don’t see spokes people from other country’s coming to America to try to stop gay marriage, gay tv, gay agenda and the teaching of gay sex ed in our public elementary schools.. At least these other country’s stand for something… What do you stand for? You can’t be okay with everything because there is a difference between right and wrong and today nobody wants to hurt anyone’s feelings and just say no, but you have to, their has to be boundaries or else chaos will consume..

    • Very interesting opinion, “Stand for something”.
      Let’s not forget there is heterosexual lust too (e.g. pornography); also, is it lust if a man and a woman have a relationship when they are infertile so can’t have children?

      What I would like to know though is how these chemicals in food/drink/medicine are only turning a minority of people and animals homosexual. How do you explain that?

    • Yes, lets all stand for bronze age ignorance and bigotry in a modern world that understands the very scientific reasons for homo sexuality. As you type away on your computer, hypocrite!

    • yes it is immoral to me it is also even I am a gay,, i dont engage to sexual acts that fast,,, I think of the consequences too,,but lets see the other side,, If you a STRAIGHT guy engaged on a sexual act with other woman even if your married or not,, what would be the consequences?? is it not immoral also??? IF your a good thinker about your article,, you should take into consideration the depth of punishment or that CONSEQUENCES fair on both sides,, YES it IS IMMORAL but WILL YOU KILL THEM??? A MOB HITTING YOU TO DEATH???WHAT IF A STRAIGHT GUY WHO IS IMMORAL OF BEING SEXUALLY ATTRACTED TO OTHER WOMEN AS MY FATHER DID SUFFERS THE SAME PUNISHMENT? AND IF YOUR A GENIUS TO SAY THAT IT IS THE CHEMICALS IN THE FOODS AND WATER,, THEN WHY ARE THErE so many NO DRUGS to prevent becoming feminine or GAY, LESBIAN, etc..NO GENIUS EVER DISCOVERED THAT AND THAT THEORY OF YOURS,..
      lets talk about government too,, you said that America was founded as a Christian nation,, and You stand for something that being GAY is immoral,, but isnt it written that judging your brothers sin is immoral too though your are a sinner also?? wow what a genius you are, it is simply if you dont like it,, go away but do not hurt them.

  • im also a gay,,they did discriminate you, even your family,, I dont know why cant we just be Straight and be Straight, but I cant,,Is it Gods plan??? it is written in the BOOK that we shall die,, BUt by what mean?? it is not death that they take out our life literally but by just simply discriminating us, hurt us,, ItS already DEATH isnt it?? when God said that we are the GRAPES of this world,, so that means we are GRAPES??? of course not,, MISUNDERSTANDING that leads to DEATH,, and as it is written you shall not judge one another because no one not one is righteous that there is only one judge and its GOD,, who are you to decide what God did to us??? its our sin if you think it is but when you look into a woman and imagined sex with her, isnt that already a sin?? as it is written??? YOU STUPID PEOPLE DONT KNOW ABOUT THE PARABLES OF GOD WHICH IS A SECRET OF HEAVENS HE REAVEALED TO US,,, He said that if your arm cause you to commit sin,, will you literally cut it?? if your eyes cause you to commit sin, will you take it out and burn it?? waht it means is that the wrong deeds is what you gonna cut and burn,,IGORANCE,, so IGNORANT PEOPLE THAT EVEN A PRESIDENT OF THOSE COUNTRIES DONT KNOW how come you became a president??,, you really want war?? lets create a bigger, wider war,,is a vial of virus more powerful than SARS or MERS enough in each of those country to have our revenge for them?? we cant create a nuke or abomb, so lets make some more research,, what about a toxic chemical into their water supply?? YOU THINK WE ARE EVIL? so be it,,,,,,,,.

    • The debased mind cant even understand the ways of the creator because he gave you over to your own ways because of your sin and turning away from HIS ways. I can see you really haven’t a clue about your creator and don’t know HIS word but only what you like to think, the debased mind. If you want to stay in your sin and lose the rewards of what Messiah died for it is your free will and Yah will let you have because HE’s disgusted with it, An abomination as HE put it. But don’t try to sell that debase mind on others that truly Love OUR Creator. Quit doing Satan’s Bidding. Below is scripture pertaining to Gay behavior

      Rom 1:22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools,
      Rom 1:23 and changed the esteem of the incorruptible Elohim into the likeness of an image of corruptible man, and of birds and of four-footed beasts and of reptiles.
      Rom 1:24 Therefore Elohim gave them up to uncleanness in the lust of their hearts, to disrespect their bodies among themselves,
      Rom 1:25 who changed the truth of Elohim into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amĕn.
      Rom 1:26 Because of this Elohim gave them over to degrading passions. For even their women exchanged natural relations for what is against nature,
      Rom 1:27 and likewise, the men also, having left natural relations with woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing indecency, and receiving back the reward which was due for their straying.
      Rom 1:28 And even as they did not think it worth- while to possess the knowledge of Elohim, Elohim gave them over to a worthless mind, to do what is improper,

    • so geisha dat what you think and knw. Normally is asin before God for being a gay. so if i were you i will withdraw that statement.

    • That’s not your decision to make,Only God’s decision to make that judgment.I’m gay and God has no problems with gay lifestyles because if I die from him for being a homosexual then why am I still alive?You Christian homophobes make it very difficult for us to live our lives as who we are that you will initiate hate,ignorance and violence and spreading it nationwide all around the world including on online social media websites like Facebook and Yahoo.And you dare call us perverts and say that homosexuality is disgusting?You homophobes are always repeating yourselves in your homophobic speech thinking that heterosexuals are saints compared to homosexuals and saying that God created Adam and Eve,not Adam and Steve.Is that all you homophobes can come up with to say to us?Damn,you homophobes are not only ignorant but also annoying.I hope the LGBT organizations repeal all anti-gay laws in foreign countries like Iran,Nigeria and India,free the people who was arrested and attacked by homophobes and avenge the ones who died in the hands of homophobes just for being gay.

  • In USA people loose their jobs if they say openly that they support traditional marriage. The US LGBT Nazi movement is behind all the heterophobia propaganda.

  • This is due to ISLAMIC Sharia Law. The Quran called for killing homosexuals. If you let Muslim Syrian Refugees into USA, the same thing that happens in Muslims countries could happen to the homosexual communities here in America. It already has. San Bernardino attackers killed a gay man. I don’t believe it was on accident.

    • Just an FYI, the Quran is the Old Testament (Christian holy text), the Old Testament is the Torah (Jewish holy text). It’s literally all the EXACT.SAME.BOOK. You can’t pin these things on one population of people and their religion and say their book tells them to, because it’s not true. The Old Testament in the Bible DOES NOT call for the killing of homosexuals, and neither does the Quran, and neither does the Torah. The “rules” in those books may mean a totally different thing than what we say they mean because it was written by different people in a different time and society. It’s also not OK in any way to say “If you let Muslim Syrian Refugees into the USA, the same thing that happens in Muslims countries could happen to the homosexual communities here in America.” because it won’t. If that were the case, it’d already be happening here, because our books are the same, and are therefore calling for the same thing. I don’t care what your religion or political preference is, you have no scapegoat for your hate. It’s simply there. And if you own up to it, you’ll be a step forward for this country. And the thing I’m talking about, in your case, is the fact that you’re using your fear of the Muslim religion as an excuse for a prejudice against people from Syria, and your prejudice against the Muslim religion and it’s people.
      Also, the only Muslims harming people (i.e. ISIS, Al Qaeda, etc.) are extremists. That’s not what the Quran calls for; it calls for peace and love and justice and equality, just like Christians and Jews do.

  • Life is one big joke where people have no feelings about what they do to their own brothers and sisters friends family whatever we are someone’s son or daughter. what type of person can hurt another person just for the pleasure as there is no reason to be inhumane or cruel. United States of America celebrates they’re new Embassy in Israel as the Jewish community believe that God’s next child is coming. but what if that child was a Palestinian boy it would be executed like Jesus Christ was on the cross by the Romans. you would think by now since the Romans run the world in 300 BC things would had moved on and people could accept people for who they are but the humankind just has a cruel and bloodthirsty streak of cronus growing through its body. I often think what if Jesus wasn’t godson but instead it was Mary Magdalene God’s daughter would women be Bishops instead of men would we have a pope that was a woman how things could be so different if only humankind could grow away from its destructive ways and cruel sad life’s. we tried to look to move to Mars but destroy the planet that we have and sadly hurt people in the process. if only religion could stop trying to destroy itself and accept that all religions have one purpose and that is to show love to human Kind and respect the beautiful Planet We Live in and on. But we all must hope one day for change in mankind to wake up . how many of us have to see the tiers in a mother’s eyes after all we are all born from someone who had love in her heart.
