Young Gay Activist Dies in Azerbaijan

Chairman of the “Free LGBT” organization Isa Shahmarli committed suicide by hanging himself in his office. Prior to the act, he posted on his Facebook page: “I am leaving. This country, this world is not for me. I am going to be happy. 59 Islam Safarli Str. I am leaving the door open. Tell my mother that I love her. You are all to blame in my death. This world is not strong enough for my colors. Goodbye.”

Several days prior to his death, Isa wrote in his short story: “When my mother said ‘I do not have a homosexual son’ I swallowed it. Ever since that day I constantly feel this lump in my throat.”
