Hasan Sabeh was a happy, talented 34 year old Gay Transvestite fashion designer, also affectionately known as Tamara and who lived in the al-Mansor district of Baghdad.
Two months earlier, he was tending his fashion accessories stall in a street market when an Islamist death squad wearing Iraqi police uniforms seized him. They stripped off his clothes in the street and shot him dead.
Hasan's brother-in-law was nearby and rushed to cradle his body. He, too, was shot dead at point blank range. The killers then took Hasan's body and hanged and mutilated it as a warning to other gay and transgender Iraqis.
