relationships between women are technically not illegal despite the fact that relationships between men are (a technical error when writing the law lol) but it would be very difficult to be out and accepted unless you happen to find yourself in the company of other lesbians  but once you know one of them apparently theyll introduce you to all of them just cause its such a small group. i havent heard of anyone being in a long term relationship though and generally the gay scene is much more present than the lesbian scene just because of the way that womens mobility is often much more restricted in comparison to men in kuwait (most girls in my family have curfews while the boys dont. plus guys can just say theyre going to diwaniya or whatever). good luck!

Be private.

Don't be a butch. At a certain time, men looking feminine and vice versa could get you detained. Now I belive it is more relaxed again.

Hello anonymous.
It's a bit complicated I don't know how to explain it.
1. Community.
2. Formal or the government or legal authorities.
3. Religious a.h. dum p.o.s. phsycos.

1. People here can openly act or look butch but they might hear slangs or get negative vibes rarely.
But it's not acceptable to show passion in front of people even heterosexual married couples it's inappropriate. I noticed people here HATE trans woman. Kuwaities like boys more than girls mothers sisters etc so if you're a butch or trans man people will like you.
2. There is a law about homosexuality it's only jail time maybe up to 7 years. But authorities aren't uptight about reinforcing it on people it depends on you don't provoke anyone and you'll be safe.
3.Religious people hate every thing so homosexual people are sinners and they think they should be killed. Although there is no such law or shareaa in sunna or Quran states gay people should be punished even. They just come up with crazy s*** all the time.
Just be safe you can show hints but don't come forward to anyone.
