Like many parts of the world, the life for a lesbian or gay person living in Iran can be incredibly dangerous -- oftentimes even horrific.

In an effort to artistically contextualize the life of a queer person in Iran, a group of LGBT Iranians have put together a visual poem, titled "I," and written by JD Kamran. Produced by the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC), "I" is a beautiful and touching attempt to communicate the pain and resilience of LGBT individuals and their families living in Iran.

Check out the visual poem above, and head here for more information about the IGLHRC.
