Egypt Continues Anti-LGBT Crackdown

Egypt, never the most friendly place for LGBT people, has been cracking down on them even harder as of late, specifically gay men.

From WaPo:

A crackdown on gay people in Egypt intensified over the weekend as security forces raided cafes in downtown Cairo and courts delivered harsh prison sentences, further driving the nation’s LGBT community underground.

More than 60 people have been arrested, said human rights activists…

Security forces have also detained people at their homes in the middle of the night and used apps and online chat rooms to entrap those perceived to be gay.

If only the White House would take a stand against such oppression. Oh, wait: the White House approves of such oppression. My bad!
