Under Islamic Republic of Iran law, LGBT face systemic persecution and are deemed to be criminals just for being who they are. As a result they face prosecution and punishment ranging from flogging to the death penalty. Many undergo forced sex changes to avoid the death penalty.
As a result, many LGBTs flee to save their lives, leaving their family, friends, love ones and everything else behind.Canadian Charitable Number: 848606067RR0001 (Click Here to See IRQR profile on Canada Revenue Agency
