Acid Nightclub: decisions…decisions…

Fadi Abboud, Lebanon Tourism Minister

According to a 33 word piece of news by Lebanon Files:

Fadi Abboud, Lebanon Tourism Minister, issued a decision to close Acid Nightclub, which apparently opened its doors last Friday after the State Council issued a decision to reopen it.

In the news piece, Lebanon Files referred to Acid Nightclub as a place which promotes “sexual deviance” (للشذوذ الجنسي).

Lebanon Files, be more tolerant. It’s sexier.

    I just read this post regarding the decision of the Lebanon Tourism Minister…Wow, what a load of crap that is. I mean really…does he think that closing an establishment like this, is really good for the Lebanese economy. I’m not sure what the situation is there in Lebanon, but in the US there is a great deal of revenue generated by the LGBT community. I am very sorry that you all have to deal with this kind of discrimination, as it reminds me of what it was like here over 50 years ago. When will the world realize the infinite talent, intellegence, creativity, and productivity of our global gay community. Viva la difference!!! Best wishes to all my Lebanese friends, Max in America

    This is very worrying, and could not possibly come at a worse time, when everyone’s attention is on the “big picture.”

    “sexual deviance” LOL eh wtf is maameltein???
    That’s NOT fair. I swear Lebanon should focus on more important things like sexual trafficking, MDW rights, and all that jazz. There’s nothing wrong with a gay club so EFF OFF! sheesh bajeesh.
