Homosexual dating sites
Though homosexuality is not illegal in Egypt, police have been using social media and smartphone applications to hunt down and arrest gays and lesbians.
Two gay Egyptians, who hide their sexuality and live in fear of being arrested, tell us their story.
The footage was shared across social media and was picked up by the local press, who condemned this ceremony.
At the beginning of the week, the public prosecutor’s office ordered the two men featured in the ceremony to undergo “medical tests” that were supposed to be able to determine if they were homosexual.
We hope that those who attend, in turn, will share this information with the gay people they know.
