Gays ‘to be barred from entering Persian Gulf’


I have never had a desire to see Iraq, Iran, Kuwait – I would like to see Dubai – but if I have to hide being gay – I am not about to go anywhere near those homophobic places!

Now, Medical screening tests are going be used to reinforce  the decision to keep gay people  OUT OF THE  PERSIAN GULF area!

From Gulf – The routine clinical screening of
expatriates coming into the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) might be
also used to “detect” homosexuals, a senior Kuwaiti official has said.

A central committee tasked with the status of expatriates will look
into the proposal when it convenes on November 11, Yousuf Mindkar, the
director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry, has said.

“Health centres conduct the routine medical check to assess the health
of the expatriates when they come into the GCC countries,” he said.
“However, we will take stricter measures that will help us detect gays
who will be then barred from entering Kuwait or any of the GCC member
states,” he said, quoted by local daily Al Rai on Monday.

Homosexual acts are banned in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi
Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the GCC member countries.  READ MORE
