Hi, I'm Saudi 24 gay man, from Riyadh. I love being gay in saudi arabia because I feel very attractive lol most people here are bisexual, and nobody is actually homophobic because teenagers in school brag for having pretty boyfriend, so everyone is exposed to gay things and saudis are not turned off by this but only because islam doesn't accept any sexual activity regardless of orientation it makes it hard to be sexual in saudi arabia.. but all the guys here are awesome and they love pretty guys ;) the only down side for me is that nobody is serious in a relationship as they all want to marry a female and have kids.
