  1. It is encouraging to see that there are voices calling for reform even in areas like the Middle East that are so unfriendly to LGBT people.

  4. it's a non-governmental organization. thus, it will not actually get anywhere. neat idea, but this is not something that will really amount to anything over there.

  5. Maybe it can reach many of those LGTB Emiratis living in the western world, so it's like trying to extinguish a house burning fire by watering the garden. Even so, it's nice to see someone from the inside trying for a start.

  6. ^^I agree with this. It's a step in the right direction. But without the help of their gov't (which is run by their religion), I don't forsee anything truly coming from this, other than some underground LGBT network.
