Not necessarily. See Donkey's link. And Canada, USA and Britian all had thriving gay bars and nightclubs long before homosexuality was legalized.

Anyway, there are a number of civil rights issues to be tackled in Lebanon, besides gay rights. From women's rights, to religious rights, to worker's rights, to those of domestic servants.

You will have to excuse Nick. It seems he is now fixated on two things: worldwide gay rights (but especially in Muslim nations); and democracy in Russia. To each his own

Absolutely not ESPECIALLY in Muslim nations - the stricter the discriminatory legislation, the more strongly I feel.

But of course, good luck to all the people whose rights are trodden on, in their struggle for rights, not just gay people.

Muslims are 60 percent of the population, Christians make up the rest. The government has a confessional system based on quotas to share the rule between both religions. Laws are secular, no sharia or Koran in legislation except for civil status(marriage, divorce and inheritance) which is handled by every confession based on its religion ( so Christians marry in churches and can't divorce, muslims can polygamize etc...)

What about agnostics and atheists? Are they permitted? I know you say laws are secular, but one never knows.

You can believe whatever you want and live however you want. But in the quota system, there are no seats in parliament for agnostics or atheists.
