Capital punishment in Iran Some human rights activists and opponents of the government in Iran claim between 4, and 6, gay men and lesbians have been executed in Iran for crimes related to their sexual orientation since According to Yahyavi, gays deserve to be tortured, executed, or both. Ten to fifteen percent of executions in Iran are for rape. The rape victim may settle the case by accepting compensation jirat in exchange for withdrawing the charges or forgiving the rapist.

A woman can also receive diyya for injuries sustained. Normally, the rapist still faces tazir penalties, such as lashes and jail time for immoral acts, and often faces further penalties for other crimes committed alongside the rape, such as kidnapping, assault, and disruption of public order. On July 19, , two teenagers from the province of Khorasan who were convicted by the court of having raped a year-old boy were publicly hanged.

As a year-old, he was ineligible for the death penalty under the law in Iran. On March 15, , the daily newspaper Etemad reported that the Tehran Criminal Court sentenced two men to death following the discovery of a video showing them engaged in sexual acts. Another two men were allegedly hanged publicly in the northern town of Gorgan for sodomy in November An on-line petition for their release began to circulate around the internet.

On May 10, , Isfahan police arrested 87 people at a birthday party, including 80 suspected gay men, beating and detaining them through the weekend. Neither this term nor the equivalent for "eunuch" occurs in the Quran , but the term does appear in the Hadith , the sayings of Muhammad, which have a secondary status to the central text.

Moreover, within Islam, there is a tradition on the elaboration and refinement of extended religious doctrines through scholarship. This position has been confirmed by the current Supreme Leader of Iran , Ayatollah Ali Khamenei , and is also supported by many other Iranian clerics.

The state will pay a portion of the cost for a gender reassignment operation. In , Khomeini passed a fatwa allowing gender reassignment operations as a cure for "diagnosed transsexuals", allowing for the basis of this practice becoming legal. Hojatoleslam Kariminia, a mid-level Islamic cleric in Iran, is another advocate for transsexual rights, having called publicly for greater respect for the rights of Iranian transsexuals.

However, transsexuality is still a taboo topic within Iranian society, and no laws exist to protect post-operative transsexuals from discrimination. Some homosexual individuals in Iran have been pressured to undergo sex reassignment surgery in order to avoid legal and social persecution. In order for the two to be in an open relationship, Sahar considers surgery to work within the confines of law which permits relationships after transitioning due to the relationship being between a male and female.

Family and relationships[ edit ] Same-sex marriage and civil union are not legally recognized in Iran. Traditional Iranian families often exercise strong influence in who, and when, their children marry and even what profession they chose.

No legislation exists to address discrimination or bias motivated violence on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

The artwork included explicit homoerotic artwork by Francis Bacon and the government in Iran stated that upon its return, it would also be put on display in Iran. While the interview never mentioned the sexual orientation of Saghi Ghahreman, it did quote her as stating that, "sexual boundaries must be flexible The immoral is imposed by culture on the body".

The Green Party of Iran has an English translation of its website that states, "Every Iranian citizen is equal by law, regardless of gender, age, race, nationality, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, or political beliefs" and calls for a "separation of state and religion". Voluntary relationship of adults with each other is their private affair and no person or authority has the right to scrutinize it, interfere with it or make it public".

In , scholar Saviz Shafai gave a public lecture on homosexuality at the Shiraz University and in would research sexual orientation and gender issues at Syracuse University. While the founder of this group had to flee Iran and continue his work as an exile, there is an underground LGBT rights movement in Iran. In all his shows, Ali mentions his status as an Iranian citizen and his commitment to being proud of who he is regardless.

Ali currently resides in San Francisco, California, which hosts a prominent gay community. During protests against the outcome of the Iranian election in July , it was reported that several openly gay Iranians joined crowds of protesters in the United Kingdom and were welcomed with mostly positive attitudes towards LGBT rights. The day is on 4th Friday of July Persian: Iraanse Boot in Amsterdam Pride and Publieksprijs award [56] [57].

A booklet was approved, with explanation of condoms, and distributed to high school students. By the late s, a comprehensive educational campaign existed. Several clinics opened up to offer free testing and counseling. Government funds were allocated to distribute condoms to prostitutes, clean needles and drug rehabilitation to addicts and programs aired on television advocating the use of condoms.

The Alaei brothers were joined in their educational campaign by Dr. Along with government funding, UNICEF has funded several Iranian volunteer based groups that seek to promote greater education about the pandemic and to combat the prejudice that often follows Iranians who have it.

While educational programs exist for prostitutes and drug addicts, no educational campaign for LGBT has been allowed to exist. In talking about the situation Kaveh Khoshnood stated, "Some people would be able to talk about their own drug addiction or their family members, but they find it incredibly difficult to talk about homosexuality in any way".

There is a small population of gay Iranian immigrants who live in Western nations. In , the Japanese government rejected an asylum plea from another Iranian gay man. The Netherlands is also going through a review of its asylum policies in regard to Iranians claiming to be victims of the anti-gay policies in Iran. In , the Netherlands stopped deporting gay men back to Iran temporarily. In March , Dutch Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk said that it was now clear "that there is no question of executions or death sentences based solely on the fact that a defendant is gay", adding that homosexuality was never the primary charge against people.

However, in October , after pressure from both within and outside the Netherlands, Verdonk changed her position and announced that Iranian LGBTs would not be deported.

Some cases have provoked lengthy campaigning on behalf of potential deportees, sometimes resulting in gay Iranians being granted asylum, as in the cases of Kiana Firouz [67] and Mehdi Kazemi.

The law does not distinguish between consensual and nonconsensual same sex intercourse, and NGOs reported this lack of clarity led to both the victim and the perpetrator being held criminally liable under the law in cases of assault. The law does not prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Security forces harassed, arrested, and detained individuals they suspected of being gay or transgender. In some cases security forces raided houses and monitored internet sites for information on LGBTI persons.

Punishment for same-sex sexual activity between men was more severe than between women. According to international and local media reports, on April 13 at least 30 men suspected of homosexual conduct were arrested by IRGC agents at a private party in Isfahan Province.

The agents reportedly fired weapons and used electric Tasers during the raid. According to the Canadian-based nonprofit organization Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees, those arrested were taken to Dastgerd Prison in Isfahan, where they were led to the prison yard and told they would be executed.

Hate crime laws or other criminal justice mechanisms did not exist to aid in the prosecution of bias-motivated crimes. The law requires all male citizens over age 18 to serve in the military but exempts gay and transgender women, who are classified as having mental disorders. New military identity cards listed the subsection of the law dictating the exemption. According to 6Rang this practice identified the men as gay or transgender and put them at risk of physical abuse and discrimination.

Additionally, the Ministry of Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare required health insurers to cover the cost of such surgery. Individuals who undergo gender reassignment surgery may petition a court for new identity documents with corrected gender data, which the government reportedly provided efficiently and transparently.


Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons in Iran face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. While people can legally change their assigned gender, sexual activity between members of the same sex is illegal.
