Better to be a Jew Than Gay in Gaza, Says Gazan LGBTQ Man

07/10/2022 | The Jewish Press

“The lives of LGBTQ young people on the Palestinian streets, and especially in Gaza, are hell,” Ahmad, a 27-year-old from Gaza, a gay man who conceals his orientation and any sign that might identify him, told TPS. Ahmed, a resident of a neighborhood near Gaza City, told TPS in a phone call, after promising to hide his identity, that “here in Gaza under Hamas rule, it is better for you to convert to Judaism and leave Islam and even better to be perceived as a spy for the Israeli Shin Bet and not declare your gay. Hamas may hang you from the lower part of your body.”
