Gay arab dating
After the news broke, it was only natural to see it make the rounds online. Several people began tweeting their reactions via a trending hashtag titled #Save Rihanna ... While Dubai has become something of a gay Mecca for Arabs from surrounding countries where there are even harsher views on homosexuality (you can’t get much harsher than the death penalty, after all) gays in the city can’t afford to rest on their laurels.

The popular Barbadian songstress was spotted with Saudi national Hassan Jameel in Spain this week.Photos of the couple getting up close and personal in a pool have since gone viral.
