Al Jaras Magazine Continues its Gay Bashing.

Al Jaras Magazine is apparently on a mission: to spread homophobia and encouraging gay bashing.

There’s a new headline 0n its cover (published on Friday):

“إلى الشاذّة: إن لم تعتذري سننشر إسمك وصورتك”


“To the dyke: If you don’t apologize, we will publish your name and picture”.


So the magazine is apparently not budging; it continues on using derogatory terms against gays.

Not only that. Nidal El Ahmadiyye is threatening the person who wrote a letter responding to Diana Wehbe’s gay bashing in last week’s issue.

Akh…as if gay bashing and spreading homophobia wasn’t enough. Now threatening?

Dear Al Jaras Magazine,

You’re using gay bashing to sell magazines and that is just not right. Stop spreading ignorance and hatred.

Dear Readers,

If you don’t approve of the message Al Jaras is sending, then it’s simple:

    This is a real shame for a magazine that considers freedom a main rule in its work, gay or not, lesbian or not , such articles , such tone in speech and used of words full of hatred are rejected

    Gay-basher or no, anyone who reads AlJaras is probably someone whose respect or support is something you shouldn’t care about.

    Hi BeirutBoy!
    Need your help!
    A friend of mine, Lebanese living in the US, has asked that we vote for him and his boyfriend. They are planning to be the first gay couple to get married in the air – on a plane.
    You can read more about it all here:

    And go to this link, search for Wojtek and Ashraf, and vote!!

    Please forward to all those who might be supportive and vote 🙂

      (you My Dear made exactly what I had in mind about that plane thing :p Quand les grands ésprits se rencontrent)

    How disgusting! But then again I would expect such atrociousness from a wanna-be tabloid mag headed by the freak of nature that runs it.

    It’s the hairdressers in Lebanon that buy these mags for their clients. so ladies everywhere should complain when they see them at the salons! That should teach those dirt-bags a lesson.
