Yasamin Club House: There is no doubt that LGBTQI communities have encountered discriminatory behaviors in Iran in different settings such as educational settings, sports, healthcare systems, and government sectors. Pressure and repression divest us from recording the hostility and circulating it around society.
It is time that we speak out our experiences through recording and circulation of what has happened to us and inform people about our demands, concerns, and presence to let them know how their misbehaviors, judgments, and language could be offensive and harmful.
May 17th is the International day of standing up against discrimination, assault, and repression against LGBTQI communities. Such assignments in world calendar reminds us that many people have attempted over past years to stop repression against LGBTQI communities. Today, we are responsible for undertaking our duty to fight all the discriminations.
