and as I pointed out yesterday in the deleted post many other things are illegal in the UAE that are not illegal here; such as a couple of the opposite sex who are not married sharing a room. Should only married people be allowed to enter the competition? Or should unmarried couples promise to book a second room?
Just read this thread with interest. As per all of the responses and not wanting to get into a huge debate O2 would never bar anyone from entering a competition as this would indeed be discrimination. In addtion they would have absolutely no idea of anyones sexual orientation when they enter a competition.
As for the legality issue that would be for you to decide should you win. Again unless you told anyone how would they know?
Anyway this all a moot conversation because I have entered and Im going to win
