1 openly Qatari gay person in total, who is only able to avoid persecution and prison by being in exile, is not progress at all.Of course that's a huge step forward, how to do you think these things start anywhere?
It has made zero difference so far and if you think Qatar will not instantly reverse the miniscule changes that have made as soon as the World Cup is over then you haven't operated in the region.The question here was simply about whether this World Cup will bring positive change on human rights issues in Qatar and to me it's absolutely clear that it already has and will continue to do so.
Huh? Everyone is talking about what is happening now. Dr Mohamed is in exile for fear of his life right now. Thousands of workers died preparing for a WC that is still happening right now.If you prefer to sit around dredging up irrelevant history from decades ago and ignore the facts of today then that's up to you.
