Gulf states could have clinical screenings to 'detect' homosexuals and stop them entering the country

Speaking to local daily paper Al Rai, the director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry said that whilst medical centres already conduct tests to assess the health of those entering Kuwait, they 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 did not detail exactly what procedures these screenings would involve.

    From what the author says, it seems like a whole bunch of slight misunderstandings have come together to distort what's actually being proposed (not that that makes what is being proposed any more acceptable).

      The main take away from that article seems to be that they're looking for trans people, ie anyone who's genitals don't match their clothes, and that the real point of the legislation is to crack down on immigrants.

        I expect that in such a repressed society, the demand for Thai ladyboys is palpable.
