DUBAI: A court in Abu Dhabi has sentenced 26 men, including an Indian, to five years’ imprisonment for organising a gay wedding at a hotel. They were arrested in the UAE capital recently dressed in women’s clothes and make-up in preparation for a gay wedding.

The public prosecutor had accused the group of homosexuality, Emirates Today reported.
The group defended themselves in court saying they were proud of their act and were keen to practice it.
