MUSLIM GAY GIRL Syrian blogger turns out to be a male leftie peace activist

Human rights campaigners have reacted furiously after a US student based in Scotland unmasked himself as the author of the “Gay Girl in Damascus” blogs, which charted the security crackdown in Syria.

Tom MacMaster, a 40 year-old Edinburgh University masters student, admitted that he was “Amina Abdallah Arraf”, who had described herself as a “queer”  Syrian political blogger. Because of MacMaster, many real gay activists came under investigation by Syrian authorities.
