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!

Unwelcomed.

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.

its difficult to be happy in kuwait if you are gay. if you have the ability to leave then i suggest you take it.
