Default hi there..

im really sorry to just barge into your forum and start asking stuff.. but im boggled at the minute..

im moving to dubai next month.. and im in a bit of a blind panic over it..

i really hate having to say this without knowing anyone.. so its kinda difficult..
im a gay woman.. usually this isnt a problem.. as i dont look it.. or really go out of my way to act it.. but at the back of my mind.. i know its going to be illegal to even be myself while im in dubai.. and to be honest.. that thought is worrying..

i was wondering if anyone had any clue as to what the situation is with "people like me" out there?.. are there any friendly bars? .. am i likely to get arrested/deported? .. how bad is it?

and also.. im going to be wanting to keep in serious contact with my friends.. or at least the ones that i mess about with online.. and i know the etisalat problem with the internet and censorship.. so i was wondering if i grovelled hard enough.. could someone please check out this site for me - http://brpicc.divamag.co.uk/binn/ult...?/forum/2.html .. and let me know if its blocked?

a slightly embarassed thanks people..

Welcome to the forum...

If you do a search, there was a thread about the scene out there, and also about certain services that aren't censored...but discretion would be key.

sorry if the thread went off track a bit........ that tends to happen on the site. LOL....... hence the e-pub, The Leaky Dhow, was born!

The censorship thing isnt so bad... really....... it cud be alot worse. Besides, if u live at one of EMAAR new communities in South Dubai, u can avail of EMAARS internet thru Sahmet, which isnt censored.

BTW......... EMAAR is one of Dubais major property developers..... 99% of their projects are in South Dubai.

Ur welcome for the welcome. LOL.
