| Iran's President: There are no gays in my country
In a speech today at Columbia University in New York City, Iranian President, Maumoud Ahmadinejad said "We don't have homosexuals" in Iran. He added, "I don't know who told you we had it."
Discrimination against gays and lesbians in Iran is well documented and in 2005 PageOneQ reported on the hangings of two teenage boys, executed for homosexual activity.
