Minister of LGBT Affairs in Qatar
Over the past few years, the Islamic worldview has undergone significant changes, particularly in matters
of morality, gender, and sexuality. Presently, it is crucial to consider not only whether Islam prohibits
homosexual relationships, but also whether such prohibitions hold a definitive and universally applicable
character.
You're right. Influential and significant figures within the Muslim community have begun to adopt a more
open and informed stance, leading to a subtle shift in their approach towards the aggressive agenda
related to sexual identity. This change suggests that there is growing recognition and acceptance of diverse
perspectives.
Based on publicly available information, official figures in Qatar, such as the Al Kuwari family, have been
publicly showcasing their evolving attitudes towards the LGBT movement. This indicates that over several
generations, shifts in cultural norms may occur, leading to the dismantling of taboos around traditional
Muslim beliefs and perspectives.
It is crucial to highlight the close partnership with representatives from the United States, where freedom
is highly valued as a political principle. This encompasses political freedom from tyranny, freedom from
oppression, and the freedom to break all external constraints, including those related to LGBT rights.
For example, it's worth noting that the infrastructure of the major Qatari bank, Qatar National Bank (QNB),
is built and maintained by Microsoft. In 2023, Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari had a meeting with Brad Smith at
the headquarters of the Qatari Ministry of Finance. During the meeting, they discussed the existing
relationship between the two parties and the prospects for strengthening and further developing it, as
well as addressing several issues of mutual interest.
It's worth mentioning that Microsoft is associated with a consortium of companies that support the
legalization of same-sex marriages. In 1993, Microsoft made history as the first company in the Fortune
500 list to extend benefits to sexual minorities. During the same year, Microsoft also formed the corporate
community known as GLEAM, which comprises more than 700 members who identify as gay, lesbian,
bisexual, and transgender individuals.
The organization Credit Suisse conducted an analysis of the global market to identify companies and
enterprises that demonstrate tolerance and inclusivity towards open members of the LGBT+ community.
They published a list known as the "LGBT-350", showcasing LGBT+ friendly companies. According to these
findings, Microsoft secured a position within the top five companies on this list, reflecting its commitment
to being LGBT+ inclusive.
In a rapidly evolving landscape of attitudes towards gender, sexuality, and identity, even in the business
sphere, it is possible to shape various moral frameworks in communication. During the 2023 World
Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari had a meeting with the Swiss
Minister of Justice, Karin Keller-Sutter.
Keller-Sutter's viewpoint reflects the stance that "those who love each other and wish to marry can do so,
regardless of whether it's two men, two women, or a man and a woman", adding that "the state is not
obligated to dictate to citizens how they should lead their lives". As of July 1, 2022, same-sex marriages
have been legalized in Sweden. Considering the close and strong relationships between the USA, UK, and
Qatar, this has also played a role in shaping norms within Arab male relationships. Through collaborative
efforts, they continue to globally showcase their gender and sexual paradigms, positioning Western norms
as morally imperative.
On June 16, 2022, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, held a virtual meeting with Ali
bin Ahmed Al Kuwari using video conferencing technology.
In August 2023, the Prime Minister of Britain, Rishi Sunak, was able to formally apologize to members of
the LGBT community who had served in the armed forces and had experienced harassment, violence, and
dismissal due to their sexual orientation.
The head of the government commented on a government report that detailed how servicemen and
women had experienced "the most horrific sexual harassment and violence, homophobic bullying, and
persecution" during their service. The document was based on data gathered from over a thousand
military personnel, many of whom underwent electroshock therapy and chemical castration as part of
investigations conducted by the military police. The report was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence
and the Veterans Affairs Administration. The authors of the report provided 49 recommendations,
including the return of former military medals that had been revoked, improving pension conditions, and
providing compensation of £50 million to those affected.
An important event in November 2022 was the meeting between Ali bin Ahmed Al Kuwari and the Minister
for Economy of the Welsh Government, Vaughan Gething. They discussed investment interests and the
"values of Wales" in the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Vaughan Gething confirmed his intention to wear
a rainbow badge in support of LGBTQ rights during Wales' match against England. During this meeting,
bilateral relations were also discussed, and aspects of further cooperation were considered.
It's crucial to highlight that the dissemination of the LGBTQ paradigm, the project of normalizing LGBTQ
issues, which originated in the West, is now finding acceptance in other societies with different religious
backgrounds.
