I’m Here, I’m Queer, And I’m From Iran

WEST HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is facing the manly music for his ignorant assumption that Iran has no gay people.

The controversial comment came this past Monday (Sept. 24) in a speech at Columbia University, where Ahmadinejad said, “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” but one queer competition hopes to set the record straight.

The Mr. Gay Competition is an international search for the man that best represents the gay community, and executive producer Don Spradlin says he wishes Iran’s homophobic head honcho could have seen Mr. Gay Iran, Kaveh Ghaderi, before making his questionable comment.

Spradlin says, “These guys from countries where it’s illegal to be gay, like Iran, Egypt, and Syria, are really putting it on the line. It’s admirable.”

And while Ahmadinejad’s scandalous speech sent shockwaves through the captive crowd, Spradlin says it was a blessing in disguise.

He says, “It’s a gift he gave us with these insane remarks. The fact that students at Columbia were so outraged indicate that there are gay people in all cultures. It was a very telling moment.”

The Mr. Gay Competition is January 17-20, 2008. For more info, check out
