This gay teen lost his asylum appeal & will be sent back to Iran where 'they will execute me'

A gay teen from Iran was told he has three weeks to leave Sweden after his asylum claim was rejected. Mehdi Shokr Khoda, 19, is Christian and said that he fears for his life if he is forced to go back to Iran.

“I cannot live open as a gay in Iran,” Khoda told Gay Star News. “They won’t understand something about you. They will just kill you first.”

Last year, the Migration Board in Sweden rejected Khoda’s asylum claim, saying that he there wasn’t enough evidence that he is gay and Christian.

In appealing the decision, Khoda’s boyfriend of 18 months Carlo Rapisarda, 22, appeared before the board.

“We live together, we love each other, we’ve known each other a long time. Isn’t that evidence enough?” Rapisarda asked.
