Googoosh: Iranian pop star sings about same-sex love

*******

An Iranian singer — in exile — has addressed same-sex love in a new song and video that, reportedly, is causing a stir in her homeland as well as abroad. I’ve watched the video and was touched by the message, and by singer Googoosh’s beautiful voice and presentation. Near the end of the video, the following words appear while two young ladies clasp hands: “Freedom to Love for All.”

The song is called Behesht, and the YouTube version above features English subtitles. Enjoy .  . .

Love to all

– Jillian

P.S. My Gazette blog post on this also features a report by The Associated Press about the video.
