Kuwait deports 76 gay men in crackdown

MANAMA —  Kuwait has deported 76 homosexuals and shut down 22 massage parlors this year, the head of a morals committee has said.

Gulf News reported that the gay men were apprehended during nationwide campaigns aimed at enforcing the law regulating massage parlors.

The committee, made up of representatives from the Ministry of Social Affairs and Labour, the Ministry of Commerce, the Ministry of Interior, and Kuwait Municipality, pledged to forge ahead with their crackdown.

During the raids, the committee members found and seized sex toys, women’s underwear and make up used by the men.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy towards any morally objectionable activities and we will not be lenient with anyone who breaks the rules or puts the health of Kuwaiti citizens and residents at risk,” a ministry official told the media.
