Human Rights Watch accuses Iran of homosexual segregation

The same international organization that busted Israel for human rights violations on the West Bank is now accusing Iran of harassing gays, according to the Washington Post.

According to a report made by the non-profit organization, thousands of people have been sentenced to death for homosexuality since 1979, the Iranian revolution.

As of right now, there are several gays among 130 that are awaiting the death penalty.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was snickered at when he said that homosexuality did not exist at a speech at Columbia University.
