Well, unfortunately, to refrain from any public displays of affection outside of a heterosexual marriage is sound advice for anybody visiting Qatar. I would not advice homosexual activity even in the privacy of your hotel room, or at least you need to be very careful not to leave any signs that you are more than just friends, because getting caught is a real possibility and punishment may be severe.

The problem is that FIFA gave the World Cup to a country with repressive laws. The comments that they now have to give are just inevitable.

2006 and 2010 brought you "Fair Play!" and "Say No To Racism!"
Coming to WC 2022: "Let's all be homophobic!" and "Fuck human rights!"

They seriously messed up, all the progressive, culturally sensitive bs they've been spouting essentially goes out the window with displays and choices like this. Good to know that its the worlds game (as long as you're straight). Hey FIFA if you are so damned powerful why not just force the country to change its laws (cultural mindset) in order to get to host?

Did you hear the actual audio clip? He fucked up, but it's gonna blow (no pun intended) over. He immediately contradicted himself & gave an eloquent party line answer & then added that by 2022, it'll most likely be legal there anyhow and no human being would be discriminated in any way. I wish that too, but; What a tool!
