Real Bravery Shown by LGBT+ Afghans


Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist activists rallied on Sunday 5th February to the gleeful endorsement of their right wing allies in the press, who claimed that they were “brave”. But they were shamed by the very real bravery exhibited by LGBTQIA people living under the Afghanistan state ruled as a clerical-fascist dictatorship by the Islamist Taliban. Pink News, the top gay newswire, takes up the story, reporting that a protest conducted at a private residence and transmitted over the free internet, accused the United States of abandoning LGBT+ people. “This is a regime that doesn’t believe in LGBTQ+ rights, human rights and the rights of women,” said Qadamshah, an activist who has since fled Afghanistan. “My last message is that the world, the USA and western countries should help LGBT Afghans to flee because they are in a very bad situation here.”  Pink News notes, “While countries like Canada have offered specific schemes for LGBTQ+ Afghans, others have yet to recognise the danger queer people face under Taliban rule.”
