Qatar claims LGBTQ FANS WILL BE WELCOME FOR 2022 WORLD CUP

Qatar has already claimed that fans will be welcome and that rainbow flags will be allowed despite how they treat LGBTQ people in the country.

Asked if that meant homosexuality would effectively be legal for a short period, he said the FA had been given an “unequivocal answer that absolutely everybody is welcome”.

The Guardian reports 6,500 migrant workers have died in the construction of the tournament venues.

The former England footballer, David Beckham, has come under fire for signing a deal reportedly worth £150 million to promote Qatar’s tourism and culture. LGBTQ activist Peter Tatchell asked Beckham to “think again” over the deal.
