What You Need to Know About LGBTQ the Arab Countries
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people generally have limited or highly restrictive rights in most parts of the Middle East, and are open to hostility in others.
Apparently, Sex between men and fellow men is illegal in 9 of the 18 countries. It is punishable by death in five of these 18 countries therefore the rights and freedoms of LGBT citizens are strongly influenced by the prevailing cultural traditions and religious mores of people living in the region – particularly Islam.

Male same-sex activity is illegal and punishable by death In Iran, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates. However, in Yemen and Gaza Strip the punishment could range from death to jail Depending on the crime committed.
Ironically in Bahrain, Cyprus, Northern Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, all same-sex activities are legal.
Strong international criticism has been leveled at several Middle Eastern nations for their persecution of homosexual and transgender people, including the death penalty, life in prison, fines, torture, beatings, vigilante attacks, vigilante executions, honor killings, forced psychiatric treatments, forced anal examinations, forced hormone injections, chemical castration, floggings, and deportation.
It is possible to find evidence of homosexuality in the Middle East at least as far back as Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt. Sex offenses were punished the same in ancient Assyria whether they were committed by homosexuals or heterosexuals.

A person was not punished for approaching a member of a lower social level, a cult prostitute, or a person whose gender roles were not firmly assigned to men. "If a man copulates with his equal from the rear, he becomes the leader among his peers and brothers," says an Akkadian tablet known as the "umma lu."
However, gay relationships with coworkers in the military, slaves, royal attendants, or those where a social superior was submissive or penetrated, were regarded as ominous omens.
