Kuwait Cracks down on Gay Massage Parlours, Deports 76 Men
Kuwait has deported 76 homosexuals and shut down 22 massage parlours this year, the head of a morals committee has said.
The gay men were apprehended during nationwide campaigns aimed at enforcing the law regulating massage parlours, Mohammad Al Dhufairi told Kuwait newspaper ‘Al Seyassah’ daily.
Homosexuality and cross-dressing are against the law in Kuwait and other Gulf Cooperation Council countries-Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
In Kuwait, convicted homosexuals could face up to 10 years in prison, if the engaged parties are under the age of 21.
Curious.. where are they being deported to? Are they being put on a raft out on international waters with no citizenship? Very sad.
