A Gay Girl in Damascus: The Amina Profile (2015)
Amina Abdallah Arraf al Omari was an anecdotal character and fabrication persona made and kept up by American Tom MacMaster. The personality was introduced as a Syrian-American blogger, recognizing herself as a lesbian on her weblog A Gay Girl In Damascus and blogging on the side of expanded common and political opportunity for Syrians. During the 2011 Syrian uprising, a posting on the blog purportedly by “Amina’s” cousin asserted that Amina was snatched on June 6, 2011. This started a solid reaction from the LGBT people group and was canvassed generally in traditional press.
