Lebanese LGBT Blogs On The Rise

Lebanese LGBT Blogs On The Rise.

Two years ago, I stumbled upon a gay Lebanese blog, Gay in Beirut, which inspired me to create my own blog.

So it excites me when I see Lebanese LGBT bloggers and activists who are putting their experiences out there for the world to see (or in this case, read). I know that will only encourage other Lebanese gay readers to be brave and make their voices heard.

Here are some (of many) Lebanese LGBT bloggers that I’m proud of. Thank you for blogging, for making a difference, and for giving hope to confused 14 year olds who are sitting in their room wondering if there are other people “like them”.

On TV shows, bullying, and frogs

On TV shows, bullying, and frogs.

Some background info on this post: A “comedy” TV show in Lebanon has recently been airing skits that ridicule a number of minorities, be they domestic workers, Palestinians, or gay people. In last night’s episode, they featured a stereotypically gay man singing a love song to another man in a mocking way. A number of people voiced outrage about this on social media outlets today. Another group voiced outrage at the outrage.

Growing up, I had my fair share of bullying.

I was teased constantly, called a fag (or its French or Arabic equivalent), made fun of, etc.

I was once beaten up, not that badly, but it scared the shit out of me.

I spent one night in jail for some LGBT work I was doing.
