Diversity makes us stronger! 🏳️‍🌈

The U.S. Mission shows its support for the dignity and equality of all people.

The US mission to the UAE added that,

On the anniversary of Stonewall, a milestone in the American civil rights movement, the U.S. Mission shows its support for the dignity and equality of all people.

The sentiment is ringing in strong that the US, UK and Spain are flying the rainbow flag to affirm pride in UK diversity & values of equality, inclusion & freedom.

LGBTQ+ activity is punishable by law here in the UAE, all acts outside of a heterosexual relationship are criminalised.
