Even in post-Morsi Egypt, Sharia sensibilities are still strong enough to lead to this arrest. Gay rights organizations, meanwhile, are still nowhere when it comes to speaking out against Sharia oppression of gays. They’d much rather denounce Pamela Geller and me for doing so.
(AGI) Cairo, May 10 – The Court of Nasr City, in the suburbs of Cairo, has decided to try six young Egyptian homosexuals for organising a gay party in the eastern district of the Egyptian capital. The first hearing is scheduled for May 12, when the six young men will appear before the court. Several Egyptian human rights organisations stepped in to defend them on Facebook and Twitter although homosexuality is considered to be a crime in Egypt.
