Gay Beirut

Beirut is home to an ever-growing gay scene. Outside of Israel, Lebanon is the most gay-friendly country in the Middle East. Although homosexuality is theoretically illegal, the penal code law is rarely used. Gay travellers in Beirut shouldn’t face any difficulties, but public displays of affection are ill-advised.
