England and USA Risk Punishment in Qatar 2022 World Cup Over Promotion of Gay Rights

The promotion and expansion of homosexuality and “human rights” have been on the front burner as the FIFA World Cup kicks off in Qatar.

The LGBTG community has recently received a lot of support and solidarity, particularly from the governments of the United States and the United Kingdom.

Recently, the English Premier League set the bar for how to use the most popular sport to support homosexuality.

The Stonewall charity, which was established in 1989 by a small number of individuals involved in the fight against Section 28 of the Local Government Act, was the organization in charge of starting the Rainbow Laces campaign in 2013.

Although it stigmatized the LGBT community, Section 28 of the Act, a piece of legislation that sought to prevent the “promotion” of homosexuality in schools, also served to energise it.

The Rainbow Laces campaign is primarily intended to promote equality for lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people in sports.

In October, the 20 Premier League clubs’ captains donned rainbow-themed armbands to launch the Rainbow Laces campaign.

Qatar’s Position on the Promotion of Gay Rights in the World Cup

However, Qatar, a Muslim State, has stated that even though “Everyone is welcome” in their nation, “we are a conservative culture and any public expression of affection, regardless of orientation, is frowned upon.” The World Cup is set to begin this weekend. All we want is that people respect our way of life.

Human Rights Watch has invited the Qatari government to respond to their allegations. In what appears to be a compromise, the Qatar Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy recently told CNN that the 2022 World Cup will “be an inclusive, safe tournament” and that “everyone is welcome, regardless of race, background, religion, gender, orientation, or nationality.”

What is the Punishment for Gay Activities in Qatar

The truth is that “Homosexuality is banned in Qatar and is punishable by imprisonment and, if you’re a Muslim, perhaps even death.

“The authorities in Qatar must stop allowing crimes against LGBT persons to go unpunished. Rasha Younes of Human Rights Watch said, “The entire world is watching.”

Because homosexuality is illegal in Qatar and is subject to a three-year prison sentence, FIFA has come under fire for granting Qatar the hosting rights.

Khalid Salman, Beckham’s fellow ambassador for the Qatar World Cup, reportedly told a German publication that homosexuality “damages the psyche.”

English Fans Asked to Respect the Local Laws of Qatar

While defending his own decision to attend the tournament, UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly advised LGBTQ+ football supporters traveling to Qatar for the World Cup to “follow the legislation” of the host nation.

Cleverly claimed to have discussed Qatar’s homosexuality laws with the Qataris. He said that while “we would always urge not just tolerance, but a real embracement of variety,” the “default setting” for any British citizen traveling abroad should be to “respect the rules of their host country.” He was speaking to MPs on the foreign affairs committee.
