Have been looking at some of the new blogs that have arisen and I want to stand up and loudly applaud Scudder and Finn for quite literally sticking their necks out and publishing what I can only assume is Oman's first gay community blog. I am proud of your bravery and your innovation.
Everyone should go and have a read of it, and then maybe email the folks there and give them your feedback.
The gay community in Oman is huge. The closet gay community makes up what I imagine is more than half.
Gays and Lesbians can put the average heterosexual to shame when it comes to support and engagement of those in need, so I want to see this blog eventually blossom into a website and a magazine with help and advice for those who need it, some interesting articles about the community in Muscat and throughout the GCC - and details for places to go, things to do and upcoming events.
No one can keep a lid on this for much longer. This country is tolerant - very much so, and while there's a lot of heads in the sand about the subject, I think that awareness and exposure will only benefit everyone concerned.
The blog is here: www.communityqueer.blogspot.com - go and have a look!
Scudder and Finn.......you're both awesome!
