The 1975's Matty Healy Kisses Man At Dubai Show In Defiance Of Anti-LGBTQ Laws


The 1975 frontman Matt Healy kissed a man from the audience at a show in Dubai in a show of defiance against the Arab country's anti-LGBTQ laws.

Video footage shows Healy going into the crowd and kissing a man on the lips, which was received with loud cheers from the audience.

"I love you bro. We're all human, right?" Healy said after returning to the stage.

Homosexuality is illegal in the Arab emirate and is punishable with up to 10 years in jail. The show was The 1975's first gig in the United Arab Emirates.

"Thank you Dubai you were so amazing. I don't think we'll be allowed back due to my 'behaviour' but know that I love you and I wouldn't have done anything differently given the chance again," Healy later tweeted.

He added, "But who knows maybe they will let me back in let's just wait and see :)."

Last year, The 1975, who are advocates for LGBTQ rights, donated money to help establish London's first LGBTQ+ Community Centre.
