Apparently, Kuwait's director of public health Yousuf Mindkar, says its country has the technology to detect gays and prevent them from entering the Middle Eastern country. I wasn't aware that Kuwait had a problem of keeping flocks of gays out.

Kuwait isn't even a gay hotspot. Neither is the Middle East, where gay is banned because of conservative Islam — Dubai, considered one of the more progressive places there, is still pretty intolerant of homosexuality. Berlin and San Francisco these places are not, and people going to Kuwait or Dubai aren't doing so because it's some wonderful Shangri-La for gay people (like Tel-Aviv) or some open gay sex paradise (like Pakistan). And it all makes you wonder if Mindkar is just banning people who, by and large, don't even have any interest in going.
