What do Arab school curriculums say about homosexuality?

A+ A-

Hi y'all! How's it going? I'm a gay Arab dude living in the us. And right now I'm writing a research paper for school about LGBT+ people in the middle east. One thing I want to talk about is religious education and how it influences cultural homophobia.

I've already found an online pdf of the Saudi Islamic Jurisprudence textbook for 10th graders and Yemen's curriculum for 12th graders, both basically said that gay people should be executed and that it's the worst sin ever.

Does any of you have knowledge on the topic (education and homosexuality)? Or still have pages from their high school textbooks that talk about homosexuality? I would appreciate it very much if you guys could share any of them with me.

    I can only speak of my country of course; nothing at all. I think they simply don't want to go anywhere near the topic itself neither positively nor negatively.

    Do you focus in research paper on arabic middle east or do you want to include non-arab muslim states?
    However, it is a pretty interesting topic, could you upload your research paper online once you finished?
    I will message you the school curriculum on homosexuality in my country when I find it

      Yes, that'd be great! Thanks very much.

      I focused mostly on Arab countries, although I definitely won't be against talking about other middle-eastern countries too if I find good sources. And OK, I will upload it when I'm done! It's just a 15-pages research though, so it's nothing riveting, but its should also include some really great sources I used if you wanna go through much more thorough readings on the topic.
