It's no secret that LGBT life in Iraq these days is as dangerous as it gets - quite possibly the most dangerous in the world. Secret underground networks have emerged to help escort LGBT Iraqis out of the country. Since the fall of Saddam Hussein (no friend to LGBT rights himself), the safety situation for LGBT Iraqi citizens has become even dire. And there's concern this week that the Iraqi government is going to start executing LGBT people.
