I was deported from Dubai Due to Crossdressing - Bobrisky

In a recent episode of the TokeMoments audiovisual podcast hosted by Toke Makinwa, controversial

crossdresser, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju, popularly known as Bobrisky, revealed that he was deported from the United Arab Emirates due to his appearance differing from the photo on his passport. The reason for this, according to Bobrisky, was because of the country's Islamic laws which prohibit cross-dressing.

 

Bobrisky claimed to have visited Dubai multiple times in the past without any issues, but on this occasion, he was deported due to it being on a jumĘżah day, a special day of prayer in Islam. Upon arriving at the airport, he was approached by immigration officers who questioned whether he was the same person as the one depicted in his passport. Bobrisky, who was wearing a lot of makeup at the time, explained that he had transitioned from male to female, which caused some confusion among the officers.

 

The officers then took him to a private office where they asked whether he was trans, to which he responded that he used to be male. They explained that on a normal day, he would have been allowed to enter the country, but due to it being a jumĘżah day, they were unable to do so. Bobrisky recounted the incident, saying that the officers rejected his face several times when he tried to use the face camera at immigration. He added that he likes to brag about traveling first class and being in Dubai, which may have contributed to his heavy makeup on the day of the incident.

 

Bobrisky's deportation from the UAE highlights the country's strict laws regarding cross-dressing and LGBTQ+ issues. Despite these laws, Dubai is known to be a popular tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors each year.
