World LGBT blackspots

  • Brazil’s military and paramilitary groups engage in ‘social cleansing’ against urban poor gay men and transsexuals in its favelas.

  • Shia paramilitary militia prowl the streets of Baghdad and either abduct or murder lesbians and gay men.
  • Iran’s government orders flogging and execution of LGBT Iranians.
