In this article, you will get all information regarding Journalist Arrested In Qatar For Wearing LGBT Shirt – S Chronicles

Since being announced as the host country of the 2022 World Cup, Qatar has taken a close look at its customs and culture so the world can understand what life is like there. One of the issues that has attracted attention since then is the intense repression against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQIA+) people.

The bad reputation is such that fans even turned down invitations to the games for fear of what might happen to them for belonging to this group.

Qatar’s Penal Code speaks of homosexuality as a criminal practice, punishable by eight years’ imprisonment or even death, under “Sharia”, which stands alongside the legislation.

American journalist Grant Wahl reported on his social media profile that he was arrested at the entrance to Ahmed bin Ali Stadium, where the United StatesWales World Cup match will be held. The reason was the rainbow printed shirt he was wearing.

“Right now: Security is refusing to let me into the stadium for USA vs Wales. ‘You have to change your jersey. Not allowed’”, wrote Wahl.

Later, the journalist said that he managed to enter the stadium, but before that he was detained for about half an hour.

“I’m fine, but it was an unnecessary provocation. I’m in the press area, still wearing my shirt. I was detained for almost half an hour. Let’s go, gays,” the American published.
