Police in the Gulf kingdom of Saudi Arabia have launched another raid on a so-called gay party, this time in the coastal Qatif province. (Notice how they say drugs were there, to legitimize the penalty to being gay.)
Drugs, alcohol were reportedly found at the gathering.
TV channel al-Arabiya reports that two young men wearing women’s make up and dancing together were among 55 people arrested by religious police.
Last month more than 20 men after a raid on another property in Qatif.
Quantities of alcohol were seized at a gathering of young men. Many were initially arrested on homosexuality charges but later released.
The state Commission for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice was acting on a tip off.
In Saudi Arabia homosexuality is illegal under sharia, or Islamic Law
