Secretary Rice Urged to Condemn Execution of Gay Iranian Teens

The Human Rights Campaign sent a letter today to Secretary
of State Condoleezza Rice asking her to condemn the recent execution of
two gay teens in Iran as well as other horrific human rights abuses
against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people across the globe.
The text of the letter follows:

July 22, 2005

Dear Madam Secretary:

This week, the world learned of a horrific case of brutality
against two young Iranians. This crime warrants an immediate and strong
condemnation from the Department of State.

This week, two Iranian teenagers were hanged in a public square
after being tortured for 14 months, simply for being caught having
consensual sex. Pictures of their execution have been published in
various newspapers around the world and can be found at the following
