The new law allows doctors to perform sex reassignment surgery but only on intersex people.Both civil law and Sharia criminalize homosexual activity.Reports even suggest that any site with the word gay or sex is blocked.In May 2015, Planet Romeo, a LGBT social network, published its first Gay Happiness Index (GHI).In 2014, Karen Mke and Kamilla Satto, two transgender women from Brazil, were arrested at a hotel nightclub in Dubai for "imitating women." The women were not allowed to leave Dubai once their passports were taken, and faced criminal charges.
Several news reports have revealed how the law is typically enforced. In 2005, twenty-six young men were arrested at an Abu Dhabi hotel after police discovered the men engaging in cross-dressing and homosexual practices.In discussing the raid, Mohammed bin Nukhaira Al Dhahiri, Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Auqaf stated, “There will be no room for homosexual and queer acts in the UAE.Our society does not accept queer behaviour, either in word or in action”.Article 354 of the Federal Penal Code states, "Whoever commits rape on a female or sodomy with a male shall be punished by death." While English translations of the Arabic text are in some dispute, it is generally felt that this is a prohibition against rape, and possibly consensual sodomy.The Federal Penal Code does not replace the legal system of each emirate, unless it is contrary to the federal law, and thus Sharia law remains in place.
Punishments range from jail time, fines, and deportation.
