Gay people will be treated similar to beer at the Qatar World Cup in 2022.
Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser al-Ali, the country's sports minister, compared gay fans and footballers who wanted to travel to the soccer tournament.
Alcohol is partially banned in the Arabic country, but is sometimes punished with flogging. Both male and female homosexuality is punishable with flogging and imprisonment of up to five years.
Al-Ali, when asked by the Associated Press, said the country will find 'creative' ways that beer could be sold.
