An Iranian court has sentenced a teenager named Ebrahim Hamidi to death for having "homosexual relations." Three of his friends were acquitted, and all four teens claim the charges are phony. Regardless, the court ordered Hamidi to be hanged, in what is scheduled to become yet another execution in Iran of someone who is gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

Both those in Iran and the international community as a whole must condemn the Iranian regime's continued sexual policing. Indeed, last month, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made headlines for stating that the position of the U.S. government is that "gay rights are human rights." Now is the time to back that statement up with a strong condemnation of Iran's scheduled execution, and tireless work to help stop Ebrahim Hamidi from being killed.

Send Secretary of State Clinton a message, and urge her office to do whatever it can to help shed light on Hamidi's situation, and the plight of LGBT people living under the threat of death in Iran.


Secretary of State Clinton,

In early July, an Iranian court ruled that a teenager, Ebrahim Hamidi, should face the death penalty for charges that he engaged in "homosexual relations" with others. Hamidi was charged with three other teenagers, all of whom have had their charges dismissed. These teenagers have said that the charges were bogus; yet Iran still plans to move forward with executing Hamidi.

Last month, you gave an historic speech where you said that gay rights were indeed human rights. That speech reverberated throughout the world, giving hope to millions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people struggling for equal rights in the face of oppression.

Now is a chance to take those words, and organize the international community to condemn gay executions in Iran, as well as the planned execution of Hamidi. Here is a teenager being sentenced to die, solely because of his perceived sexual orientation. We can't let this happen in silence.

Thank you for your time and we hope you do all in your power to push for equality.
