The same-sex kiss defied the Arab nation's strict anti-LGBTQ laws.
The 1975's Matty Healy is pretty sure his band won't have a command performance in Dubai anytime soon. During the band's first-ever gig in United Arab Emirates, Healy went down into the crowd at Coca-Cola Arena on Wednesday night (Aug. 14) to greet a male fan who reportedly shouted "Marry Me." Healy then gave the man a hug and seemed to ask if he would also like a kiss, right before laying one on his lips.
The kiss broke the strict anti-LGBTQ laws in the nation where homosexuality is illegal and punishable by up to 10 years in prison. In fan-posted footage of the kiss that took place during "Loving Someone," Healy is seen kissing the man and then reminding the crowd, "we're all human, right?"
