Boycott and Contact Anti-Gay Bahrain!

Bahrain has begun a new campaign targeting gay/lesbian citizens in a bid to cleanse them from the country. The government is working to ban all foreign homosexuals from being able to obtain residence. The government is also conducting a study to see how widespread homosexuality is in the country and what can be done to counter it. The government also advises teachers to look out for signs of homosexuality amongst students and to take appropriate disciplinary action.

This is outrageous and our voices must be heard!

well this isnt new in bahrain considiring homosexuality is regarded as a mental illness and public display is punishable by imprisonment for 10 years and for expatriates deportation. we have no rights here if i come out i will be commited to a mental hospital and if i refuse treatment then prosecution. so nothing can be done my friend
