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
