A new report, released by the group IraQueer, has revealed the state of LGBT rights in Iraq. It found 96% of LGBT Iraqis have faced physical or verbal violence because of their sexuality or gender identity. The study explained that the queer and trans community faces violence from armed groups, the government and families, friends and neighbours. Every year since 2006, there has been at least one killing campaign against the LGBT community in the country.
