Plight of Gays in UAE Highlighted by Dubai Police Officer, Lesbian Teacher in New Video: WATCH

Officer

LGBT Rights UAE is a non-governmental organization that strives to raise awareness about the issues that face The LGBT Community in the United Arab Emirates. You may recall their stunning animated clip I posted in September which featured Hillary Clinton and urged the adoption of LGBT rights.

Their latest clip has the same awareness-raising goal and features a Dubai police officer, and a lesbian obstetrician and teacher forced to tell their stories through signage for fear of anti-LGBT discrimination.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. But fags and their supposed supporters will still go and give them their tourist dollars because they went there on Sex and the City. And no one will make a stink about it because everyone is afraid of insulting anything Arab or Muslim.

  4. Constant correcting; constant speaking out; constant speaking up for our absolute equality.......this is the only way to go.
    If straights bring up their subjects or relationships....or social benefits discussions or marriage discussions, we must always do likewise.....a never ending discussion of equality, equal talk time , equal opinion time, equal benefits, health care, vistitation, everything.
    Every time the straights talk of issues in their social milieu so must we....on exactly the same basis.

  5. Just a nitpick, but an obstetric nurse is not the same thing as an obstetrician.

    I can't imagine what it must be like to live under such oppression - what I went through was crushing enough, people must have to become very strong to survive under such conditions. I hope more enlightened attitudes begin to take root in the UAE.

  7. As a 60 year old gay man, the scene with the policeman and his boyfriend holding the sign "WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS" made me tear up. It reminded me of all the messages that I received growing up in the USA of how hated gays were.

    The changes are moving at an amazing speed, but not nearly fast enough.

  8. All organized religions are the enemies of human freedom, Islam is by far the worst. They are today where Christianity was in the Middle Ages and where Judaism was in biblical times.
