LGBT rights in Iraq

Homosexuality has been decriminalized – but is still considered a taboo by the majority of the population in Iraq. Many LGBT people in the country suffer from discrimination, abuse, honor killings and murder. There are even allegations that uniformed Iraqi police officers have carried out lethal attacks on homosexuals. As a result some LGBT human rights groups have described Iraq as one of the world's most dangerous places for LGBT people to live.
