Predictably, not much has changed since then, as the government still does not recognize any LGBT rights - this is mainly because their laws are highly influenced by tradition and by the Wahhabi Islam, which is known as an ultra-conservative Islamic doctrine.
From 2011 to 2012, a Saudi newspaper stated that more than 260 people have been arrested for the crime of homosexuality, because the men were caught cross-dressing and wearing make-up.
In 2017, a Saudi Instagram star was arrested for two weeks for being 'too feminine'.
At present, domestic partnerships, civil unions, and same-sex marriage are not legally recognized. Even more, the Islamic jurisprudence still classifies being transgender as illegal, so punishments for cross-dressing are similar to those applied for homosexuality - whippings, torture, and capital punishment are just three of the consequences of being out in Saudi Arabia.
In terms of education, children still have to learn basic Islamic values according to the Quran's interpretation - this means that homosexuality and cross-dressing are presented, from a religious standpoint, as sinful acts.
Censorship is also heavily practiced in Saudi Arabia - media cannot be produced without governmental approval, and there are numerous aspects which have to be taken into consideration before concieving content (for instance, it cannot be against any Islamic teachings).
Although the future of the LGBTQ+ members from Saudi Arabia doesn't seem bright in terms of safety, there has been some progress made overall: recently, women from Saudi Arabia were finally granted permission to travel without the approval of a male guardian - this may not seem like a big deal for someone living in country where equal rights have already been recognized legally, but it is the beginning of a fight for a better, more secure world.
It is difficult for people from all oppressed communities to publicly claim their rights, especially when the punishments of their country represent a direct threat for their lives, and not just for their freedom - however, it is clear that things will not remain the same in the long run. After all, if change occurs worldwide, discrimination in religious areas will become much more than just frowned upon.
