UAE ministry denies reports of hormone treatments for 'gay wedding' suspects



Abu Dhabi: The Ministry of Interior has categorically denied reports appearing in a section of the media that 26 individuals who were held at an alleged gay wedding have been subjected to hormonal or any other treatments. An official source at the ministry rejected the statement by the US State Department spokesman.

"They [the arrrested individuals] have not been treated with hormones or any other medicines," the spokesman said. "What has been reported in the local and international media is wholly inaccurate." The source said any punishment or prescription of medicines is not the concern of the ministry.

The judiciary is the sole competent authority that can act according to the laws and constitution of the country," he said. "Only the judiciary can issue appropriate rulings as per the UAE laws.
He added that the role of the ministry was to help the arrested individuals and its obligation ended there.

The source urged the media and other concerned parties to be accurate while disseminating news. Such information should be obtained through official channels, he said. He also called on the media to refrain from exaggerating issues and publishing news without proof.

Hello! I tried to find your email on this page but I couldn't find one!

My name is Justin. I work at Window-Media, the gay owned media company that operates the Washington Blade, NY Blade, Express Gay News, Genre Magazine, etc.

I wanted to let you know we are launching a new FREE feature called BladeWire as a syndicated item available to gay-related web sites: publications, organizations, bloggers etc. We thought it would be perfect for the Youth Pride website.

The BladeWire is essentially a headline service, offering up-to-the-minute headlines from the gay and straight press that filters through the Web to give people the best of what's going on. We post 10 – 20 items daily — generally one or two items each hour throughout the day.

It's a great add-on because:

(1) it's FREE to you and your Web site's viewers, and we take care of all of the technical details;

(2) it gives your viewers a reason to return to your site over and over between the changes you make to your site, which will drive up traffic considerably;

(3) it never takes them away from your site because all the headline links open in new windows;

(4) the colors are variable to match the color scheme of your site and it blends in really well; and

(5) the default width is set to be the same as Google ads, so it's pretty standard to slip in to your site. Other sizes are available.

I have no doubt that you and your readers will be very pleased with the BladeWire. I suggest you give it a try and see what your readers say. If for some reason you're not completely satisfied, it can be easily removed from your site.

You can see examples of the BladeWire at www.genremagazine.com and www.innewsweekly.com.

Let me know if you have any questions about the service - I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Thank you!

They should do as they please if you ask me. These gay men have disrespected the nation and religion of people in their nation.
