Stop homophobia. Why can't people just get over this?! Men slept with men since ancient times (e.g., Hellenic civilisation).

I give the protestors a lot of credit for protesting in such a hostile country with such a repressive regimen and strict religious fundamentalism. They exemplified great courage.

Can anyone explain why their rainbow has different colors than ours?

Is this just an LGBT flag and the colors hold specific meanings, or do Persians in general have a different cultural standard of what colors represent a rainbow?

I know that a "rainbow" as we paint it is an imprecise adaptation of an actual rainbow, because it's a matter of choice whether to include the bands where two colors meet as a separate color or not, so I'm very curious about this.

It's so great to see images like this from places like Tehran.
