A Gay Girl in Damascus: My Brave Father
By A Gay Girl in Damascus on April 29, 2011
This riveting post will bring the recent events in Syria to glaring reality. The bravery of Amina and her amazing father is admirable and her writing, unforgettable:
"Did she tell you that she likes to sleep with women?" he grins, pure poison, feeling like he has made a hit. "That she is one of those faggots who fucks little girls?" (the arabic he used is far cruder ... you get the idea) My dad glances at me. I nod; we understand each other.
