Pinoy cross dressers jailed in UAE

2 Pinoys working in UAE were arrested and sentenced to one month jail for cross-dressing in public.

One would argue that these two Filipinos has the right to express themselves in public.  That they can dress whatever they want.  Yes they can do that in the Philippines but probably not in other countries.  We must also consider laws of other countries.

Even though UAE is a moderate Islamic country, it still follows Islamic beliefs and traditions.  Homosexuality is not totally accepted in Islamic countries and one must be cautious not to offend Muslims especially if you are just a visitor or an OFW.

Always remember the saying, "When in Rome, Do what the Romans do".
