|Matthew Wayne Shepard, 1976-1998|
We ARE everywhere, and we are ONE family! LGBT Shi'ih and Sunni Muslims, Baha'is, Africans, Zoroastrians, Atheists, Pagans, Arabs, Christians, Persians, from the Americas, Russians, Tibetans, Jews.....All One.
We need our friends everywhere to pressure their governments and religious authorities to end their relentless persecution against us, and for so-called free nations to stop deporting us when we are trying to flee regimes that are killing us.
We deserve and demand the same equality that all heterosexuals have always enjoyed. We all speak with one voice and one heart.
Mehdi and I wish to dedicate this video to three of our gay brothers who were been murdered by homophobic monsters; Mahmoud Asghari and Ayaz Marhoni (they were executed together in 2005, by hanging, in the city of Mashhad, Iran), and Matthew Shepard, tied to a fence, tortured and murdered in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998 by Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson.
I am my Iranian brothers and sisters. I love all of you!
