Oman: Gay Marriages a Rumour

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Jordan, Oman, Ideas, Women & Gender

Omani blogger Nabhan Abdullatif gets the shock of his life when he hears a fellow student announce in class at his Jordan university that gay marriages are allowed in his country [1]. “He basically went on and on about how gay couples from Kuwait or Saudi Arabia come to Oman to get married and that it's allowed over there and of course being the blunt person that I am I immediately raised my hand to correct this weird and rather disturbing rumor and I told the professor out loud that I am Omani and lived in Oman most of my life and that I have never heard of such a thing, Yes there are fags in our society and then again which society doesn't have them? but we absolutely do not allow gay marriage,” he rants.
