Three World Cup hotels deprived of gay rooms in Qatar: - Are we in the nineteenth century?

– Unacceptable

The 69 hotels are contacted via email or phone. Three are not gay, 20 answered “yes, but with restrictions”, 33 have no objection, while another 13 have not responded or are currently operating as quarantine hotels.

– This is of course unacceptable and inconsistent with what the World Cup Committee has promised, that there will be a guarantee of legal security (for gays, editor’s note) during the tournament, Norwegian Football Association president Liz Clavens tells NRK.

– FIFA is confident that all necessary measures will be taken for LGBT + supporters, so that they, like everyone else, feel welcome and safe during the tournament, FIFA answers in an email.

Follows Qatari laws

The three hotels that answered “no” were contacted again. One hotel responded that it is the official hotel policy, while the other said it does not outperform the position of the World Cup organiser. The latter stands alone and says that he follows the laws of Qatar.

– I can’t be sure, but the important thing is that the pressure on them is continuous and does not leave in the important months towards the championship, answers Solbakken.

The World Cup kicks off on November 21.
