Rainbow flag flies in Beirut


The Babylon & Beyond blog at the Los Angeles Times passes on this picture along with news that Helem, a Lebanese organization dedicated to the protection and empowerment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered individuals, had pulled off a successful celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia.

LGBT folks told their stories, displayed their art, and asserted their pride in their community.

My friend who pointed me to the story reports that around 200 people attended.
