‘Stop Homophobia’ Graffiti in Beirut

In the wee hours of Monday morning, 2 Lebanese bloggers took to the streets to ‘stop hate’, the best way they know how: ART.

LM and Karim created this awesome graffiti in the Monot area (Petro Trad street next to USJ to be exact).

Go and check it out for yourself. Looks amazing.

While many people go out of their way to spread hate, ignorance, (fill in the paranthesis)-ism and (fill in the paranthesis)-phobia, it’s so refreshing to see what others can do to counter it, through art.

Really proud of you LM and Karim.

You gots balls and I’m inspayad!

    It would be more effective if done in Arabic and in a more visible spot.

    What is the translation of homophobia in Arabic anyway?
