Dr Nas Mohamed is the first gay Qatari to publicly come out in the history of his country.
Now living in the USA
, he's worked with human rights organisations to document the abuses LGBT+ people face in Qatar
"They were kept in dungeons underground, they were subjected to physical torture, they were verbally abused as well and then subjected to conversion practices.
"The transgender individuals were subjected to forced genital inspections".
This was all done at the hands of Qatari authorities who, Dr Nas says, have permission to operate as "an unhinged mafia" due to the criminalisation of LGBT+ people in Qatar.
"They invade people's homes, they spy on people, they infiltrate dating apps and then they don't arrest - they frankly kidnap people."
The details are upsetting, but not the worst that has happened.
In order to protect the identities of those sharing what happened to them, these are just the experiences of LGBT+ people that are so widespread, it would be impossible to identify an individual from them.
