    I was wondering if the laws of those countries are ever applied equally in those countries? For example, I know that in Saudi Arabia, the elites can get away with having homosexual affairs while the common man can't. I read a comment on the Vice documentary called "Gully Queens", where the person said that the upper class homosexuals are relatively safe and have they own private world where if you're in the lower classes you were basically dead meat. I also read that in some Asian countries that is it's more about class and money also affects the tolerance of homosexuals. I basically came to the conclusion that educated wealthy homosexuals are given a little to bit more leeway in those countries. Would that be a correct assumption? Do you guys have stories to verify this and such?

    This whole classism isn't specific to just homosexuals. Rich people generally do get leeway in many "illegal" activites. Generally, in developing countries, you can bribe the police.
    I know about South Asian countries, where police do harass you in order to squeeze money out of you. This can also make affluent but not powerful people an easy target.

    It's the Golden Rule: THOSE WITH THE GOLD GET TO MAKE THE RULES!

    And they get to decide if the rules apply to themselves or not.

    It's been that way since the dawn of civilization. It ain't ever going to change except through violent social upheaval - French Revolution, Russian Revolution. However, history shows us time and time again that the revolutionaries soon become the new oppressors.

    I honestly don't know what the answer is.

    There are countries like the ones un Africa or China with huge economical differences among population (very rich - very poor) of course people with money are going to command the rest. That plus corruption + ignorance make some countries fucked.

    I don't know bout other countries , but I know from what I say while in Korea in the Army certain places or providences as they say you could see some subtle signs of openly homosexuality.

    You could find anything you wanted at the local palor per say.

    Just for the sex I went to see a certain girl occasionally.

    Well they can pay the law enforcement authorities to look the other way. It is not just for homosexual activities it is also done for other illegal stuff too which the "small guy" in society will never get away with. As the saying goes "Money Talks.."
