Gay Girl Gone

CBC
Society & CultureDocumentary

Of all the young revolutionaries in Syria during the Arab Spring, Amina is different. An out lesbian in a country where homosexuality is illegal, she bravely documents her life on the blog Gay Girl in Damascus. Her candid posts attract readers from around the world, and soon she has a wide, ardent following. But then a post appears saying Amina has been abducted. Her fans mobilize, desperate to track down and save their fearless heroine. What they find shocks them. Journalist Samira Mohyeddin investigates what actually happened to the infamous Gay Girl in Damascus in this 6-part series. The result is a twisted yarn that spans the globe and challenges our thinking on love, politics and identity in cyberspace. Listeners can access every episode for free weekly on Wednesdays (6 episodes total). If you want early, ad-free access, visit apple.co/cbcstories.

  • Am I the only one who knew what was up from the very beginning (the description of the arrest really sealed the deal). The story is interesting and overall it's well-told I just felt that the first 2 1/2 or so episodes dragged.

  • Loved this podcast!

    Excellent voices and storytelling. I had never heard of this story before this podcast and was enthralled. I especially enjoyed the final episode and was happy to see the team get into the real life consequences. Bravo!

  • Betrayal

    Intriguing podcast. Very angering to realize as podcast moved along that Aminah was a lying, poseur. What a betrayal of Sandra, Syrians and people around the world who were cruelly impacted by his pathetic lies. What an arrogant, pathetic, patronizing and yes, racist man. The nerve he thought pretending to be a Syrian gay woman, was somehow “helping” Syrians living under the oppressive Assad regime. He doesn’t regret anything. His betrayal of Sandra was beyond cruel.

  • Great show, CBC payment scheme deceptive

    This show is excellent but beware the CBC’s sneaky scheme to hook you for free in then extort you for money - not releasing final episodes unless you pay to subscribe. I don’t mind paying for content but be transparent up front. In protest I will be cancelling my subscription and not hearing how this ends!
