Qatar will controversially host the 2018 World Cup despite its abysmal record on human rights. LGBT+ individuals in the country are at risk of imprisonment or the death penalty due to its anti-homosexuality laws.

While Nasser Al Khater, who is in charge of delivering the event, has often stated that “everyone is welcome” in Qatar, these assertions have been contested. LGBT+ residents of Qatar have highlighted the genuine horror of the discrimination the minority experiences in the country.JAMB Result

“I really wanted to jump [out of] the window but I can’t, it’s too high and I’m already cornered inside the room. They catch me and threw me on the bed. They started to rape me,” he said.

He claims that as soon as one officer stopped attacking him, another began. The authorities then inspected his suitcase, accusing him of being a prostitute, prior to the arrival of a second gay male who had also been brought to the hotel.

The pair was subsequently escorted to a police station where they were each fined 300 Qatari Rials, or around £74. Ali was detained that night before being transferred to a deportation center and having his visa revoked.

“I slept in the jail for one night and when I woke up, they took me to the deportation centre. There I waited for two days to receive my passport and ticket to go back to the Philippines. They cancelled all my papers,” he said.

According to the report, several other gay men have claimed they were ‘hunted’ in the same way by Qatar’s police force. Despite Al Khater’s claims that the country is safe, LGBT+ fan groups have urged supporters from the community not to travel.

“A founding principle of our group is that we should be able to follow our team as our authentic selves wherever we play in the world without fear for our safety and with freedom from persecution,” a number of those groups, including Three Lions Pride, said in a statement in April.

“In our conversations with both FIFA and the SC, there has been little effort from organisers to proactively engage around the concerns fans and rights groups have raised. Instead, we have often heard the well-drummed PR line that ‘this is a World Cup for all’.

“Human rights deserve detail not deflection, but all we have unfortunately seen from those in charge is slogans not safety, gaslighting not guarantees, avoidance not action. Simply put, this is not good enough.

“We cannot, in good faith, tell our members, LGBT+ people or allies that this is a World Cup for all. We have seen no details about how our trans+ members will be treated with respect through security checks. We have heard no specifics on guarantees that LGBT+ people (fans or residents) will not be arrested for their existence.
