Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Lebanon, Arts & Culture, LGBTQ+, Youth

Ibrahim Arab [1] writes about the stunned reaction by the Arab youth to the news that Ricky Martin is a homosexual, using the Arabic word شاذ which means pervert or not normal. He comments “your perversion, Ricky Martin, is more merciful than our perversion,” pointing to issues of injustice and crimes around us.
