World news: A German court denied a request by a transgender man to be registered as the father of a boy he conceived in , according to NewNowNext.

Whatsapp Recall the media coverage at the height of the Jimmy Savile scandal, times it by about a thousand, and you get an idea of the hysteria currently surrounding gay men in Egypt. Two detained gay rights campaigners who waved the rainbow flag at a recent Cairo pop concert, and thus provoked the clampdown, are presently learning that the hard way. We should recall, though, that Egypt is a country of 95 million people, and those arrested mostly deny being gay. As someone who lived in the country for more a decade, is fluent in Egyptian Arabic and has written a book on the country that includes a chapter on male prostitution, I can testify quite emphatically that the exact opposite is true. And therein lies the rub, as it were.
In exclusive interviews with Morning Star News, the boys said they made their video before the release of the Islamic State IS mass execution video they were said to be mocking, and that at the time they had never even heard of the group. Sentenced to five years in prison, the boys fled Egypt in April and, with the backing of Christian and human rights organizations, lived in secret for five months in a safe house in Istanbul. Albir Shehata, 17, told Morning Star News that the ordeal was unfair and has been crushing, but that the opportunity to start again in Switzerland gives him new hope.
Of all the problems that I wrote about in my last post , things in Lebanon are certainly not as bad as they are in Syria, where no one has any freedom to speak out. For while we have the limited freedom of having semi-open places like Acid and X-OM, Syria has nothing of the sort. I did see one thing of note, however. I wanted to see the gay hammams that I had heard about in Syria, but due to their extremely secretive nature, I couldn't find them. So I visited the famous Nour al-Din hammam in the old city of Damascus.
