|June 26, 12:00 h||Mahmoud Hassino (Syria)||Conversation with @SyrianGayGuy in English|
Mahmoud Hassino is a Syrian journalist; he started blogging about LGBT rights in 2006 while he was still in Syria. Due to the Syrian regime's crackdown on nonviolent protests, he fled to Turkey where he worked on journalism and documenting human rights violations, and started the first Syrian LGBT online magazine, Mawaleh. His participations in Istanbul LGBT pride and advocacy for LGBT rights put him under serious risk. He had to flee to Germany where he continued working on Mawaleh and organising Mr. Gay Syria competition in Istanbul. He is now working at Schwulenberatung Berlin with their LGBTI refugees project. In the meantime, he is still going to Turkey despite all the risks to help the Syrian LGBT refugee community there.
