The attack follows widespread anti-LGBT incidents in Lebanon, including incitement to violence against LGBT people by religious leaders, banning events around gender and sexuality by the government, and proposed legislation by officials to explicitly criminalize same-sex conduct and “promoting homosexuality.”
“We had to assess whether it was safe to host the event, but we decided to go ahead because drag is a form of entertainment that is mainstream in Lebanon and had not yet been targeted,” one of the event organizers said.
To our knowledge, there have been no arrests made in connection with the August 23 attack. If no one is held accountable, authorities are sending an alarming message that violence motivated by hate toward sexual and gender minorities is above the law, and LGBT people are excluded from the government’s obligation to protect them.
LGBT people and their allies will continue to raise their voices and fight for their rights. The only question is whether Lebanon’s government will listen.
Violent Assault on Drag Event in Lebanon
Increasingly Hostile Climate for LGBT People
By Rasha Younes
Men from an anti-LGBT group attacked a bar in Lebanon where a drag event was being held on August 23, while threatening violence against LGBT people.
“We stopped the show and had to hide behind the bar, lying down on the floor, breathless,” one of the performers told me. “The police stood on the side, watching, as the men were beating people.”
The men were part of the so-called Soldiers of God group that is openly hostile toward LGBT people in Lebanon.
“There were a dozen men on motorcycles who attacked us. At least two of them had guns,” another performer said.
A video of the attack shows the assailants shoving some of the attendees and shouting “We warned you, this is only the beginning,” and, “We will not allow the promotion of homosexuality in the land of God.”
Agents of the Internal Security Forces who arrived while the attack was under way did not intervene, five of the event’s attendees said. “The police were watching as they attacked us, but instead of stopping and arresting them, they interrogated the bar owner and the attendees about the nature of the performance,” one of the attendees added.

RADIO IRRTUM! – your chill breeze in da summer… is back! \o/ Tonight, 2023-08-05 at 8:00PM (UTC+2) at Alex Berlin/FM 91 MHz/DAB+ Ch.7D, or via stream: https://www.alex-berlin.de/audio/radio-livestream
#Radio Irrtum! is my German language #radioShow exploring the sonic vastnesses of the #underground. Don't be afraid about the German language aspect - it's a show to raise your attention for new unheard #music all over the genre spectrum - and exactly this music is what has priority above all other things; so not speaking German at all wont protect you from being sonically pleasured! :)
This time there will be a nice acoustic chill with lots of different musical styles, all insanely cramped into one hour of air time.
That means in particular:
- splendid #Lofi #Beatmaker stuff e.g. straight from #Lebanon
- #beatless #Hiphop (cuz beats are overrated!)
- #DanceMusic straight from LA (why am I writing "straight" all the time → this is all but "straight" btw!)
- #IDM is a DOMINATING thing in this show - had way too much bass/halftime the last shows — about time for IDM I think
- #Underground (can't find a better tag, it's soo strange) from the UK and #Bulgaria
- #Jazz that isn't jazz but #NeueNeueMusik from #Berlin
- #PowerElectronics #Hardcore from Minnesota
- very fast and also slower (and than even kinda 60s) #GirlPunk from Canada and Nashville
- and gentle experimental electronics from the Rhein-Westerwald area in Germany
Shout outs to @firstname.lastname@example.org, @email@example.com and @firstname.lastname@example.org - you all know them from the Fediverse (don't you?!) and they all are featured in this show! \o/
As always I'll post the playlist after the show here (provided I’m at home, else it will come up the day after). And if you have questions about the music – I'll gladly answer! Just ask!
C YA ALL 2NIGHT!

On April 18, 1996, Israeli forces fired artillery shells at a UN compound in Qana, a village in southern Lebanon. Around 800 had taken shelter at the compound which was clearly marked on Israeli maps. In the strikes 106 were killed, of whom half of them children, and 120 were injured including four UN workers.
