To do: Cancel tour of United Arab Emirates

by Jeremy Hooper

   The U.S. Government is condemning the recent arrest of 26 gay men who were nabbed simply because they were queer and in the United Arab Emirates, a nation where homosexuality is illegal. Regarding the mass imprisonment and the authorities' announced plans for possible hormone treatment for those detainees whose testosterone levels were found to be low, U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said in a statement, "We call on the government of the United Arab Emirates to immediately stop any ordered hormone and psychological treatment and to comply with the standards of international law."

The unbelievable story has many U.S gays asking the obvious question: where the hell is United Arab Emirates?
