  • Status is not correct "Anyone who talks about being a part of the LGBTQ+ community can face legal repercussions. Even defending them – advocacy – is illegal. I have a friend who has threatened imprisonment for vocalising their feminist values... FEMINISM – Women's issues. LGBTQ+ individuals are shunned by society; even disowned by their own families. You can be threatened, tortured or killed for being openly a part of – or in support of – the LGBT community. "
  • Status is not correct "Anyone who talks about being a part of the LGBTQ+ community can face legal repercussions. Even defending them – advocacy – is illegal. I have a friend who has threatened imprisonment for vocalising their feminist values... FEMINISM – Women's issues. No one is allowed to talk about the queer community unless they'd like to be shunned by society, or even worse, be disowned by their own families. The law would probably recommend conversion therapy (exorcism), force religious values, or even torture them."
  • Sources are invalid or broken "The ILGA shows us as well as the media that Qatar does censor LGBTQ topics in the media and does not allow LGBTQ protests or parades"
