  1. The story about a “gay test” for travellers has been shown to have been a fiction.
    So why not apologise for running it in the first place, instead of perpetuating it with this inane nonsense?

    OK. It’s satire. Mildly amusing but absolutely no excuse for ‘Homosexual, bisexual or normal’.
    Pink News shouldn’t ride on the back of language like that.

    1. Surely that kind of language was the point? If this was a genuine advert aiming at the type of people who would want such a machine, it is entirely plausible.

  4. Hmm slightly amusing!! Does it work on gay women to? And please tell me…what is normal?

  5. Odds are some poor guy in their Customs Dept will be trying to figure out how to implement this ruling, google and find this video and then try and order the machine :)

  6. Well done! Very professional! Makes the point strongly.

  7. I know that gay men in Kuwait and other Gulf States will find this video hilarious and take a degree of comfort in it. And they need all the support they can get.

  8. Ha, ha, ha! The Putin video is good too! Well done! Russian LGBTIs will love it and take strength from it. It shows we out here, on the other side, are on THEIR side.

    People, have you been to Valery Gergiev’s Facebook page and seen the dim-witted comments from his adoring fans there? Utterly pathetic. “Maestro, Maestro, we love you, whether or not you are anti-gay!” says one air-head.

    BE AWARE OF THIS, dear friends : Not many decades ago doctors and psychologists performed aversion therapy to cure homosexuality. By projecting pictures of nice men on a screen and at the same time giving “the patient” an electrical shock, or a liquid which made them vomit. This happened in many countries in Europe, but especially in The US. Therefore we MUST remember Our past- and really fight homophobia wherever it exists- also of course, in Gulf States ! Fascism is hiding everywhere, waiting to pop up.

  10. This is complete and utter rubbish. I worked in several Gulf States for many years and as long as one is discreet there is no problem – and a lot of sex!

    1. Just how long ago?

  11. There are states who formally work against civil rights, equal rights, human rights. Who fund terrorists to bomb liberal views out of existence. Those states happen to sit on lots of mineral oil, and that is why we are told we need to cooperate, to lay back on our backs and offer our throats to be maimed, mangled and killed, to offer our rights and happiness in the temple of money.
