Qatari security services reportedly detained and interrogated a former Qatar Airways flight attendant for wearing “tinted moisturizer,” which is perceived by authorities as a sign of possible homosexual behavior and illegal in the country. That flight attendant was subsequently fired and deported. Gilbert Ignatius was arrested while celebrating his 32nd birthday with friends at the Mondrian Hotel in Doha in May of 2023. The group attempted to visit another hotel for drinks but were stopped by a security guard for their appearance, according to iNews. According to Ignatius, the security guard told them that an officer from CID, Qatar’s Criminal Investigation Department, wished to speak to them. The guard led him and his friends to two CID officers, who brought them to a security room behind the hotel entrance.
