Bahrain: US Embassy tweet condemned by local leaders

The US Embassy in Bahrain received widespread condemnation from political, social, and religious leaders in the Kingdom over a tweet on its official account @USEmbassyManama supporting homosexuality, saying that it failed to respect the values of the Bahraini society.

“The month of June is recognized in countries around the world as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Pride Month. The United States respects the dignity and equality of LGBTI people and celebrates their contributions to society. #PrideMonth” the tweet read.

The rejection in Bahrain follows a similar uproar over similar tweets promoting homosexuality by US Embassy in Kuwait.
