New York, Oct 10: A senior Kuwaiti health official is planning to introduce a ‘gay detector test’ at the airport to keep LGBT expatriates out of Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC).
Director of Public Health Yousuf Mindkar said he wants to add the gay test to the regular medical screening at Kuwait’s International Airport to determine the sexual orientation of the expatriates, the New York Daily News reports.
According to the report, the medical reports, of those who fail the test, will be stamped with an “unfit” and their visas will be disqualified.
Homosexuality is banned in all GCC countries, including Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the report added.
In Kuwait, anyone under the age of 21, who engages in homosexual acts, can be thrown in prison for up to 10 years. (ANI)
