Voices for Equality: Ayaz Shalal, Iraq

Each month, we highlight the crucial contributions of human rights defenders to the global human rights movement by profiling an activist working on behalf of equality for all. Human Rights First  share these profiles with U.S. government leaders and lawmakers and use social media to amplify the important voices working on the ground and to encourage U.S. action to protect and promote the rights of LGBT people worldwide.
