DZ is old enough to remember when being gay was illegal in this country. If you were convicted of being homosexual you could be sent to prison, where you would be incarcerated with a whole load of guys with a lot of time on their hands and no access to female company.

Egypt is one country which criminalizes gays, as has been highlighted in this article today. The Egyptian public prosecutors are pursuing a group of men because, they say, releasing film of a gay wedding "would anger god".
