Awful! Kidnapped Lesbian Blogger Story Was A Hoax By A 40-Year-Old Married Man!

lesbian blogger kidnapping a hoax

This is deplorable.

Last week, we heard that Lesbian blogger Amina Araf, who writes the blog A Gay Girl in Damascus AND is a voice for anti-government opposition in Syria, was kidnapped in Damascus.

Now, we've learned that the A Gay Girl in Damascus blog is actually just a 40-year-old married man who lives in Edinburgh, and the entire kidnapping story was a hoax.

The awful man behind the blog, Tom MacMaster, is a grad student working on his master's at Edinburgh.

It gets worse, though! Apparently, Amina Arraf Tom pursued a "six-month online relationship with a woman in Canada" via email while in character. Sickening!

Here's what Tom wrote about the hoax in a final blog entry entitled "Apology to Readers":

"I never expected this level of attention. While the narrative voıce may have been fictional, the facts on this blog are true and not misleading as to the situation on the ground".

We cannot emphasize enough how disturbed we are by all of this. Yuck!

What do U think about this hoax? Deplorable? Forgivable?

Lesbian Blogger Has Been Kidnapped In Syria

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikSad Sad

lesbian blogger kidnapped

Such a sad, scary situation.

Lesbian blogger Amina Araf, who writes the blog A Gay Girl in Damascus AND is a voice for anti-government opposition in Syria, was kidnapped yesterday in Damascus.

According to reports, she was grabbed by "three armed men" in their twenties, who forced her into a vehicle.

Amina's cousin Rania Ismail posted the following about the kidnappers on the blog:

"The men are assumed to be members of one of the security services or the Baath Party militia. Amina's present location is unknown."

Amina is NOT popular in Syria for writing openly as a lesbian despite the fact that homosexuality is illegal in the country AND she's called for an end to the Bashir regime, which also makes her a target.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Amina and her family during this upsetting, difficult time.

We truly hope that she is okay, and makes it back home safely.
