Oct 17, 2007 Quickie Link: Two 'Safe Houses' for Gays in Iraq Set To Close
By vanrozenheim

(Iraq) - Up to 25 Gay men will next month have to 'take their chances' in Iraq where religious militia regularly seek out Gays and execute them. Two 'safe houses' for Gays will be forced to close at the end month – due to lack of cash, it was learned last night. And appeal for funds was made last month by the London-based IraqiLGBT group, which runs the five safe houses. The appeal was promoted on a number of LGBT online sites and blogs in several countries. But just under £1,000 ($US2,000, €1,400) is all has been raised as a result of the appeal. The amount barely covers the cost of running one safe house for a month.
