'Gay Girl' of Syria is an American man - hoax blog written by US man in Scotland

Ah, the dangers of believing everything on the internet.

The blog 'written' by a gay woman in Syria, which was supposed to have described life in Damascus during the current political unrest, is a hoax.

Tom MacMaster, a 40-year-old American Middle East activist studying at Edinburgh University, Scotland, has now come forward as the author of a Gay Girl in Damascus.

It's too easy to string people along while remaining anonymous... they believe what they want to believe.

PS: I'm real!
