UAE Gay "Cure" Video Causes Sting in LGBT Community

A new video emerged in the United Arab Emirates that shows gay men being “cured” of homosexuality. The video, disseminated across social networks has left many in the country questioning the rights of the LGBT community and their struggle to gain full citizenship in an open manner.

The 6-minute “tutorial” entitled “Be Yourself” has shocked the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community of the UAE when it was posted a little more than a week ago on YouTube.

The video depicts five young men as the starring characters: Rashid Al-Muaini, Majid Al-Muaini, Ali Al-Ghaithi, Jamel Al-Ghaithi and Mohammad Eissa. The scene is set in a typical suburban neighbourhood of one of the UAE cities (most likely Ajman), where the five meet.

PinkNews.co.uk detailed the video in an article on the topic:

Two are in a traditional Emirati dress of Kandura and Kiffayeh greeted by a visibly shy effeminate guy with long hair, wearing a t-shirt and jeans, who says ‘Hi guys’ in a high-pitched voice, proceeding to shake their hands in a camp manner and playing with his hair.
