Iran's Anti-Gay Pogrom

The excellent Doug Ireland (see links on the left) writes: "The Islamic Republic of Iran--under the new government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad--is engaged in a major anti-homosexual pogrom targeting gays and gay sex. This campaign includes Internet entrapment, blackmail to force arrested gays to inform on others, torture and executions of those found guilty of engaging in 'homosexual acts.'"

And, on a more hopeful note: Cambridge, MA re-elected Mayor Ken Reeves, the first Afrikan mayor in Massachussets and the first Black "out" mayor anywhere in the US. Thanks to Black for both these stories.
