A gay man who lived in Qatar has revealed the harrowing truth about sting operations in place to entrap members of the queer community, with his own experience resulting in him being raped by officials. In a report by inews, a man called Ali, who moved to Qatar’s capital, Doha, after the death of his dad in the Philippines shared his horrific experience. After moving to Qatar, Ali says he used apps to meet and hook-up with other gay men – since homosexuality is illegal in the Gulf state. Qatar’s human rights record has come under fierce scrutiny as it will be hosting the 2022 World Cup this year.
