Dubai for gay couple - Gay Travel Forum
I've always wanted to visit Dubai myself but me and my boyfriend travel a lot together. Dubai is one of the cities that I've always wanted to visit but the other half isn't so keen on the idea because of the horror stories he hears about being gay in cities like Dubai.
However a colleague of mine had been to Abu Dhabi to visit his boyfriend there and told me that there is nothing to worry as long as you don't exhibit public display of affection.
As a tourist I imagine you would be fine to fly under the radar by not showing public affection etc. However, consider the ethics of travelling to such countries. These are places where gay men face discrimination, jail and the death penalty for being gay.
Is this really an environment you want to holiday in? Our staff may also remove posts that do not follow our posting guidelines, and we reserve the right to remove any post for any reason. Thanks for being a part of the Tripadvisor travel community! I am amazed that any gay person would even consider visiting such a place with their attitude towards us,there are surely plenty of much less bigoted places to visit where you can be true to yourself rather than hide away as if you are ashamed.
I've just read your post and the replies that you have already have, now as much as I appreciate everyone's apprehension and distaste for visiting the UAE specifically Dubai I would say please reconsider. I completly get and appreciate how horrific sharia law sounds and as much as I completely dislike the fact that a country could be so back ward in this day and age! There are many positives to visiting.
So yes homosexuality is illegal over there but so is unmarried heterosexuals sleeping in the same bed! So yes public shows of affection are not advised and even tho you may see many local males walking around holding hands this doesn't mean that for you holding hands is a go go.
To them this is a sign of friendship not partnership or affection. When I first arrived in Dubai and discovered the extent of the sharia law I was shocked and obviously nervous about being prosecuted for being me! I've spent many years in the closet and I'm not about to go back in for some country with what appear to us as backward laws.
That said myself and my partner don't often show public affection so it wasnt really any different to going out back home. In Abu Dabhi we spent 9 nights at a superb hotel, where the staff were so attentive and friendly and the facilities were beyond luxurie.
So much so we never left the hotel We booked a room with a double bed and were never questioned why. In Dubai we were lucky enough to stay with friends, we were they for 2 weeks and ventured out every single day, we saw all the sights and went on loads of tours visiting local areas such as the old Dubai, we spent hours chilling on the beach we even had a double sun bed and nobody looked at us funny or questioned.
Now here's the thing to remember, the UAE have invested heavily in tourism due to the prospect that the oil which earns their county its money will run out. So it is becoming a tourist hub with many new areas like the Palm and the Dubai Marina being favourites.
Words can't explain what it's like to be there as you just have to experience it, the wealth is beyond comprehension! So as people will understandable dismiss visiting this amazing country it is worth it. But what you do have to remember is that you are visiting their country and as we expect visitors to our home countries to have respect for our culture and beliefs the same goes for the UAE. But that doesn't mean you have to visit with fear for your life. We also have friends who are a gay couple and live out there and firstly they love it but also say it's nothing to worry about, there is a growing gay community out there but they just don't flaunt it.

Jimmy i think you missed the point of the other responses. I dont think people are terribly worried about safety in the UAE i may be wrong but thats not the impression i get , yes you can always hide your true self so as not to draw attention. The issue is the human rights abuses which take place and the principle that you are visiting, and advocating a country where being gay can be a crime.
Hi Jimbo i haven't missed the point, i get that people may not want to travel to a place that discriminates against peoples sexuality i got that from your post regarding ethics of traveling to places such as the UAE, and quite frankly that is fine.
My post was aimed at those individuals or couples who have anxieties regarding traveling to the UAE but who still want to travel to the UAE.
Lets face it discrimination and human rights abuse takes place all over the world including within the UK so if everyone who loves to travel were not prepared to travel to a place because of discrimination of any kind they would never travel!
Now that may been seen as a flippant response but what I'm trying to say is the world is full of discrimination people shouldn't let that hold them back from traveling to discover new places, it certainly won't stop me and my partner.
I just think that people should experience cultures before they past judgement. The world is a big place with lots to experience and discover why throw that chance away just because a country is 50 years behind the times.

I spent most of my life trying to be something that I wasn't, and I'm not about to spend good money traveling thousands of miles to go back to those dark days. I'll be me, every day and in every way. If others to choose to look the other way as they sip their Champagne, so be it, but not for me. Flights Vacation Rentals Restaurants Things to do.

Dubai Gay Travel
ON the surface, being gay in Dubai sounds like a dangerous prospect. Indeed, should you be unlucky enough to be caught engaging in homosexual activity in the region, reports claim that punishment can range from 10 years in prison, fines, deportation and even the death penalty. Despite this, Dubai is host to a thriving underground gay scene, with men flocking to unofficial LGBT clubs with little fear of the consequences, according to Detained in Dubai. Here, Australian expat Paul Ewart shares his experience of being a gay man in Dubai. Nothing strange here you might think, I mean, there are gay clubs the world over, right? Like Las Vegas, Dubai was built in a desert from nothing and like Vegas, Dubai in the Arab world anyway is known as sin city. Despite being conservative by Western standards, this is where alcohol and sex-starved Arabs flock to in droves to get their fix — and that includes the gays. I arrived in the city during the height of summer to take a section editor job at a large glossy magazine. On the surface conditions for gay Dubaiians might seem bleak, but thanks to some quickly acquired gay friends I learn quickly that, despite the legalities, a vibrant gay scene flourishes.

We know that cabin crew lead fun lives, but just how fun is it living as gay cabin crew in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, gay cabin crew in Abu Dhabi or gay cabin crew in Qatar? After graduating from university I wanted to travel the world. Fun, intense and hard work. You get training and qualifications in everything from delivering babies to handcuffing passengers. On the biggest airplane there had to be at least 20 cabin crew and they would all be from many countries which made it very cosmopolitan.
