365Gay.com is reporting that thirty men have been arrested during a raid on a private home in the Iranian city of Esfahan. The men are being accused of consensual homosexual conduct, drinking alcohol, and other “morals” charges. Iranian law provides punishments up to death by hanging for penetrative same-sex sexual activity between men on the first conviction. Men convicted of non-penetrative consensual same-sex activity can receive up to 100 lashes. For women, homosexual conduct is punishable with death on the fourth conviction.
