Gay football fans are set to be offered ‘safe houses’ in Qatar after a World Cup ambassador described homosexuality as ‘damage in the mind’. The Football Association of Wales warned it ‘can’t guarantee’ the safety of LGBTQ+ and female supporters travelling to the hardline Gulf state. Officials are considering setting up a ‘safe house’ zone where fans can be themselves without fear of arrest in a country where homosexuality is punishable by up to seven years in jail and women’s rights are restricted.
