Iraqi LGBT’s new website was launched June 12 2010 at Habibi Club London.
The website has been developed Pro Bono by Second Variety, “a web company with a difference”, with particular thanks to Jamie Archer and Erez Odier, as well as Paul Canning and Matthew Heckart who have helped develop the website.
The website development has been made possible by funding received by the Netherlands-based group Hivos, the Humanist Institute for Development Cooperation. Their support for Iraqi LGBT is now in its second year.
Hivos also help to support Iraqi LGBT’s ‘safe house’ project, which shelters many lesbians, gay men and transgender people in Iraq from attack and potential murder.
Iraqi LGBT has documented over 700 murders in Iraq.
