Lebanon Anti-Gay Egg Test Condemned by Doctors

Published: August 8, 2012

The Lebanese Order of Physicians has rounded on a controversial practice in which chicken’s eggs are inserted in the anus of suspected homosexuals and banned doctors from carrying out the so-called egg tests.

Doctors participating in the "test" have been warned by the order that they face disciplinary measures.
 
The "test" was conducted on 36 men who were arrested during a raid on a gay porn cinema in Beirut.
 
The men were charged with "acts against nature" and forced to undertake the "tests of shame", according to Lebanese magazine L’Orient-Le Jour.
 
The case triggered an international outcry. Legal rights research group Legal Agenda complained to the Order of Physicians and the Justice Ministry.
