Kuwait Wants To Ban Gays From Entering The Country By Conducting "Homosexuality Tests"

Kuwaiti leaders hope to rid their country of gays by conducting "homosexuality tests" to prevent LGBT from entering their borders. 

IBTimes.com reports:

Yousouf Mindkar, director of public health at the Kuwaiti health ministry, said that the routine clinical screening of expatriates coming into the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) will include tests to identify LGBT people who will then be banned from entering the country.

"Health centres conduct the routine medical check to assess the health of the expatriates when they come into the GCC countries," he told local daily Al Rai. "However, we will take stricter measures that will help us detect gays who will be then barred from entering Kuwait or any of the GCC member states."

Homosexuals acts are banned in all the GCC member countries, which include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

JoeMyGod reports that a Kuwaiti official also admitted that those who are openly LGBT will also be barred from entering the GCC nations.
