Subhi Nahas escaped from Syria and started the brand new life in San Francisco. But it does not mean that the villain treatment of the ISIS regime towards gay people of his country is erased from his mind and he is going to leave it the way it is now. He helps other refugees to adapt to their new life.
He still remembers Islamic fundamentalists who forced his family to move to Lebanon and then to Turkey.
The activist addressed the United Nations and talked of the brutal attacks gay people were facing in Syria and Iraq, in areas controlled by ISIS. He said he was “terrified” as the group began throwing gay men off buildings, adding, “This was to be my fate too.”
Nahas told his story in the video filmed for Great Big Story project, in which he wished all the gay people to feel safety.
