Little Mix Performs in Front of Rainbow Flag in Anti-LGBTQ Dubai

Homosexuality is still a punishable offense in Dubai.

Little Mix took quite a stance over the weekend.

While performing in Dubai — a country where homosexuality is still outlawed — the girl group lit up the stage with a giant rainbow flag image during their single “Secret Love Song.”

The song has often been considered an LGBTQ-themed song by fans, as it centers around the concept of two lovers who are unable to be seen together in public, and instead have to express their affection behind closed doors and in private moments. 

The image of the flag faded in and out over the course of the song, but was fairly prominent for the majority of it.

While some people thought it was disrespectful to not respect the culture of the country they were visiting, many praised Little Mix for taking a supportive stance for their LGBTQ fans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No matter how you look at it, it was a bold move, and one that certainly sends a message of love and inclusion to their LGBTQ fans not just in Dubai, but in any country that still has such outdated laws and views regarding sexuality. We stan.
