Googoosh – Behesht (Heaven)

From: Googoosh

In a country where gay men risk execution for their sexual orientation, Googoosh, one of Iran's most famous singers, is believed to be the first to feature a same-sex (lesbian) couple in her music video for 'Behesht' (Heaven).

The video, which the singer posted to her Facebook page on Valentine's Day, proclaims: 'Freedom to Love for All!'

According to the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia in a post on Facebook, local activists have hailed it as a 'very large step' and a 'first in the whole history of Iran'.
