"Under Iran's current fundamentalist rule, a homosexual may be harassed, arrested and punished with the most extreme measures possible.

So, to avoid constant persecution and possible death, a high percentage of the nation's next-generation gay population opt to willingly sign up for costly, traumatic sexual-reassignment operations. For some, these state-sanctioned surgeries are excruciating ordeals that ultimately aren't worth the agony; for others, the medical procedure is the first step toward complete, personal liberation."--Frameline website
