Peter Tatchell seized by Qarati security services

Hello John,

A few minutes ago, Peter was seized by the Qatari security services while demonstrating in Doha against one of the most homophobic regimes on Earth. Qatar hosts the FIFA football World Cup in three weeks. He was arrested near Qatar’s national museum while staging the first ever public LGBT+ protest in Qatar or any Gulf state. Peter was holding a placard supporting Qatari LGBT+ people who can face jail, ‘honour’ killing and forced conversion practices. Under Sharia law, the maximin penalty for homosexuality is death. Peter’s placard read: “Qatar arrests, jails & subjects LGBTs to ‘conversion#QatarAntiGay.” The current whereabouts of Peter are unknown. Photographs and videos of the arrest will soon appear here.

We are currently working to secure Peter’s release. Can you help with the Peter Tatchell Foundation’s costs to organise this protest, secure Peter’s release and his safe return to the UK?

Further information will appear in real time on our social media accounts and at I will try to update you later. Please help us and please help us highlight the plight of LGBTs in Qatar. Yours with much appreciation,

Pliny Soocoormanee Executive Officer Peter Tatchell Foundation
