  1. Thanks for the nice video. Like you i love middle eastern man and the culture. I was thinking about visiting Beirut, but will finish watching your other middle east videos before I make a final decision on where to spend a long weekend. Take care.

  2. hi ..i think you did not see the best of lebanon , what about HARESSA , jbeil . lots of places you missed ) also you said you only been to lebanon and tel aviv .. so how you judge about countries that you never been ??? i've been all over the world NEW YORK , SYDNEY .BANGKOK . SINGAPOR .. LONDON .. ALL over coz of my job , and remember that western get bad news from media about middle east … at the same time middle eastern get very very bad news from media about you guys saying shit about us… sand people , goat fker and of course TERRORIST …. its all media not people ,,what bothered me was you kept saying mentality of middle eastern as if you really know each one of US … each country has there own culture , we should all celebrate not saying this part of the world is closed minded and that is open , i believe all of the people has there own problem rich or poor gay or straight …as gay man try walking in brooklyn holding hands or harlem , and some part of europe .. lebanon its amazing , i'm hoping that you would leave the fake media and try and experience life in your own eyes .. all the best 😉

  3. Also is this guy really a Gay Travel adviser? This stupid idiot doesn't even know that Beirut surrounding is top class. You can visit " Jeita grotto & Byblos the oldest city n the world & Harrisa amazing views and on the top of the hills you can see Virgin Marry & Baalbek & Tyre and Beirut itself has allot to offer more than just what he is saying. The talking idiot is just a cock sucker .

  4. Well just like to add to this video… Being gay is not a crime and neither illegal in Lebanon, Beirut. In March 08, 2014 A court in Lebanon has made a historic ruling stating same-sex relations are not "contradicting the laws of nature" and cannot therefore be considered a crime. Lebanese law only prohibits sexual acts “contradicting the laws of nature.” therefore what's is happening or will happen behind closed doors nobody cares…

  5. Hey! I enjoyed the video untill the part where you were like Lebanon doesn't have potential! I think that is a little bit generic because you have only been to Beirut. And nice locks bruh'!

  6. My boyfriend is Lebanese and I'm Swiss, neither of us are the clubbing type and the gay scene doesn't particularly appeal, but when I visited Lebanon with him and met his friends, I was surprised at how out they were. All their friends and family knew they were gay, but I can't deny that I did get quite an uneasy feeling when I was on the streets, even though the people were extremely hospitable. The clubbing scene is extremely nauseating. But it depends on taste I guess.

  7. Gay life in Beirut & Dubai it's ok with gays hangout together, going to beach & party are fine even if you hug or kiss you bf but just don't have sex in public or french kissing & you will be fine 🙂

  8. I lived in Lebanon for over 2 years and I never had troubles in there. However, Lebanon is not a Middle Eastern Paradise as many think. People in Beirut are somehow open-minded and tolerant towards gays, but if you visit small villages like the ones in the north of the country, you can notice that the treatment changes and is quite different. 

  9. Did you go to the mountains ? Like Faraya, Bekfaya, Jbeil, Saida, Sour … those places made Lebanon a touristic country, you can see Nature there. As for the partying I fully agree, Lebanese just love to party and go out. In my opinion what makes Lebanon a great country is the nature, the food, the good people and the good looking men, and women too, lol. The negatives aren't much if you're here as a tourist, but the situation in the Middle East is a bit scary and it's totally affecting Lebanon and things are a bit expensive out here. Despite everything, Lebanon will always be a great place to be at and I'm glad that you had a good time in Lebanon +tosheatower. 

  10. Iv always been way to busy when Iv traveld to check out the guys and honestly it never crossed my mind cause I wasn't there for that. I guess even when Im traveling Im all business hahha Im down to have fun with friends family who ever Im traveling with making new friends whatever but ya I don't go to clubs or check people out noo Im too busy going from point A to point B trying to see all the things I wanna see.

  11. "Cruising" sounds sooooooooooooooooo creepy, dirty and gross. Not only that but Iv never even herd of such a thing and cant think of a place here that is remotely close to anything like that, I could be wrong. I wanna travel to see the "wonders" beautiful places to learn to explore.

  12. foreign men here in America are aggressive like that man in the elevator. A lot of them make you feel uncomfortable. I also agree north America is the only continent that is know by its separate countries…. that's weird now that I think about it.

  13. I just watched your "How do you know what the heart wants" vid. I really understand. I remember a time when love excited me. I also know the hassle part. I don't know if you have considered, the longer you are single, the harder it is to picture you and someone else in the future. Also if you watch television or listen to people talk its not about love. Divorce rates are high now. We are missing an important ingredient – need. In the past people worked together to make it happen. A very attractive quality is independence but so is vulnerability.

  15. That end clip so awesome no wonder you like Beirut. Thank you for that I've told you before I'm a snot. I will work it into a conversation that I saw in a friend's vlog how beautiful Beirut is. I will also checkout that grotto. Your dreads are looking good sorry I know that light was a bother. Been reading about something I think you will be interested in German Pow Wow.
