Iranian Americans

Many things have changed since Iranian expats began surging into the USA after the 1979 revolution in Iran. Over 1.5 million Iranian Americans now live in the USA, with 400,000 more people of Iranian heritage in Canada and that same number in the United Kingdom. Many members of this far-flung community are second-generation, having lived their whole life in America, Canada, the UK or elsewhere. Yet all share the same Iranian heritage which flavors their family with special language, music, food and holidays.

You find here the individuals, events and things people are talking about. And this group is always growing.
