Reports: Iran hangs gay man on sodomy charge

The killing of gay men continues in Iran, with little or no coverage by the MSM. This is from Iran Focus.

A gay Iranian man was hanged in public on Tuesday in the western city of Kermanshah on the charge of sodomy.

Shahab Darvishi was charged with organising a “corruption ring”, deliberate assault, and “lavat”, which means homosexual relationship between two men or sodomy, the official news agency IRNA reported.

Darvishi was hanged in the evening in Kermanshah’s “Freedom Square” in front of hundreds of people, the report said.

Activist Michael Petrelis is organizing a vigil in S.F.

This was also reported by the Agence France-Presse news agency, which said the execution “drew hundreds of cheering people.”

H/t, Paul.
