DON’T HAVE A SAME-SEX WEDDING IN MECCA – A helpful suggestions to my gay friends in Australia who are thinking of possible places to tie the knot. Just don’t:
Saudi police have arrested young men who were sprayed with confetti in a “gay wedding video”.
Mecca police made the arrests after the men were seen walking side by side on a carpet at an outdoor festival in the holy city.
The video shows two young men, dressed in traditional Saudi robes, walking down the aisle to music.
They are flanked by male onlookers who are spraying confetti.
The force did not name the men or say what charges they faced, but had referred the case to prosecutors.
In a statement posted on Twitter, Mecca Police wrote in Arabic: “The man said people attending the event were surprised when a few young men entered the place and tried to perform a “gay wedding scene.
Just not a very good idea. Love’s not winning in Saudi.
