Washington, DC — Since 1979, the regime in Iran has violently oppressed the LGBTQ+ community, executing more than 6,000 LGBTQ+ persons.

While Iranian-Americans live in a world where they can freely be who they are, Iranians in the LGBTQ+ community in Iran continue to flee the dictatorship and its arrests, torture, and execution.

As Pride Month begins, NUFDI stands with Iranians fighting for their basic dignity and the right to life. Iranian-Americans who stand for LGBTQ+ rights must stand up in opposition to this criminal regime and its reign of terror against this community.
