I am a 34 yr old Lesbian who is currently deployed and serving onboard one of our US Navy vessels. On my recent visit to the U.A.E I experienced no signs of harassment while touring the city of Dubai as part of a scheduled port call. Am a proud butch and LGBT member who wears baggy clothing and a short military fade haircut but other than a curious Bangladeshi man who knew not what a Lesbian was about, had a great time. Dubai is a bustling metropolis would seem like which brings in millions every year, who come in for Sun, fun and shopping well as a touch of the exotic, and Dubai delivers.
