The Egyptian government is cracking down on people after a group was recently seen waving the colorful symbol for gay pride at a concert. Six men were arrested last week for “promoting sexual deviancy” on social media, and now 17 men are on trial altogether after being accused of homosexuality.
After the concert last week where a rainbow flag was waved, police used images shared on social media to identify at least 11 people.
