An unusual (and brave) Syrian blogger

A British (presumably) journalist living in Damascus has been writing regularly for the “Guardian” on the recent political turmoil in Syria. She uses the pseudonym Katherine Marsh. There can’t be that many female (presumably) British journalists living in Damascus and I hope that the authorities don’t find her and detain her.

Meanwhile her latest piece is about an unusual blogger in Syria. She is Amina Abdullah and she is female, gay and half-American. You can check out her fascinating blog here. I hope that Amina too will remain safe and able to continue writing.

I was in Syria just before the demonstrations started and you can read my account of my visit here.
