The revolutionary protests sweeping across the Arab world has left me wondering if this is one step closer to gay rights or if we have yet to reach that stage of tolerance, open mindedness and acceptance in our lifetime.
The protests are inspiring and each day millions are risking their lives to publicly demand freedom and their rights. It makes me proud to be an Arab and prouder to have witnessed and taken part in these historical moments.
A part of me can't help but wonder if those protests succeed, whether or not we will have any presentation in these movements and new societies or if it will be better or worse or.... ? What does all of this mean for gay rights?
Religion and certain traditions still play a major role amongst the protesters and once new governments are formed I believe the mindset behind gay rights will not change and we will still be denied the freedom to express our own demands for freedom and equality.
Curious to know what everyone else thinks. .
