This is a video produced by a Qatari media house for a local charity, the Social Rehabilitation Center (al-Aween). It's title? 'Abnormality'.
The charity's patron is Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, glamorous wife of the Emir (King) of the fabulously rich Gulf state of Qatar, host of the 2022 football World Cup.
She is founder and chair of the Arab Democracy Foundation, she has served as a special envoy for Unesco, and she sits on the Board of Overseers for Weill Cornell Medical College in the United States. She is also an Honorary Dame of the British Empire, a member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in France and holder of the Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
But that's not all she is.
Brian Whittaker on the al-bab blog says.
I began to have doubts about Sheikha Moza's enlightenment a few years ago, when she hosted a conference in Qatar which brought together some of the world's most reactionary religious elements – Mormons and Catholics as well as Muslims – to "defend the family". The family is in peril, she warned in her opening speech, because of attempts to "redefine the concept of family in a manner contrary to religious precepts".
This includes "treatment" for homosexuality.
Another is Dr Abdul Alim Ibrahim, a senior consultant in psychiatry, who asks: "How much do Homosexuals impact on society?" – and answers the question with a gay-conspiracy theory.
Zimbabwe's president, Robert Mugabe, "went too far" in describing homosexuals as lower than pigs and dogs, the doctor says, but the development of gay rights in some countries was "not based on scientific studies". Rather, it was the result of "tension made by powerful homosexuals which affected many civil organisations, human rights organisations, decisions and law makers".
Dr Ibrahim is also worried about the effect of this on future generations. "What will be the sexual direction for the next generation," he wonders, "when they will have the right to choose" and "where inconvenient circumstances will lead them to be homosexual"?
Writing for Gay Middle East, 'Gay Qatar' said:
"The issue is clear. Locking people up for 5 years because they are gay is a slap in the face of human rights. Allowing for gays and lesbians to be forced into hormone therapy in an attempt to cure them of their homosexuality is a slap in the face of human rights. Trying to entrap gays in [Qatar's capital] Doha’s malls, streets and on gay chat rooms and websites by Qatari agents is a slap in the face of human rights."
"There are still absolutely no answers as to what will happen to gays and lesbians if and when they decide to go to the 2022 World Cup, not to mention removing the horrible legislation against LGBT Qataris."
