Doug Ireland (born 1946) was part of the early 1960s American New Left. A member of Students for a Democratic Society, he was elected to its National Council in 1963 at the age of 17. After these beginnings he devoted himself for some years to political organizing, generally under the auspices of the Democratic Party. At the same time, Ireland began a journalism career at the New York Post. In 1977 Ireland shifted to full-time journalism. For ten years he lived in France, writing on European politics and culture for various publications.
In recent years Doug Ireland has resided in Manhattan. He writes regularly in French for the magazine Bakchich, and in English for a number of gay papers. He has been particularly effective in documenting crimes against gays in countries like Iran and Iraq.
