Male prostitutes dressed in women’s clothing and wore make-up to lure customers in a coffee shop, court told
Two men who dressed in women’s clothing and worked as gay prostitutes in a Bahrain coffee shop have each been jailed for six months, Gulf Daily News reported.
The Bahrainis, aged in their 20s, wore women’s clothing, make-up and wigs while waiting for customers, the court was told.
They also advertised their services by posting pictures of themselves on Instagram.
The men charged between BD100 ($355) and BD750 to have sex with male clients.
Both men pleaded guilty to prostitution and homosexuality in the Lower Criminal Court, which convicted them on Wednesday.
However, the court acquitted them of misusing social media networks by posting provocative pictures of themselves in women's clothing.
Great article to remind one and all that homosexuality and cross dressing are strictly forbidden in all GCC countries. It serves as a timely reminder to all those who try testing the laws and authorities of the land.
Kudos to the authorities for clamping down on such activities. It's high time to address issues that plague our youth and guide them from going astray.
