Iraqi actor tortured and murdered because he ‘looked gay’

An actor in Iraq has been kidnapped and killed because he looked gay. Karar Noshi who is a graduate of Baghdad’s University of Fine Art was found dead on a busy road in the capital yesterday – two days after the aspiring actor was reported missing. According to the news website Kurdistan 24 there was ‘evidence he had been tortured and viciously stabbed.’

It has been suggested that he was targeted because of his long hair and effeminate appearance. After previously being subjected to a torrent of abuse online, Noshi hit out at those who attacked his look and perceived sexuality. ‘I cherish my personal freedom to build a unique external appearance. I remain silent about the abusive responses that undoubtedly reflect the level of their writers.’
