Since the rise of LGBTQ people who are increasingly open, the Arab government has taken a firm stance by confiscation of toys, clothes, and rainbow-colored products that are considered to promote homosexuality. One official said it was "promoting homosexual colors (rainbow) targeting the younger generation."
The first inspection was carried out by the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Commerce at a shopping center in the capital Riyadh. Some of these products are made for children, such as clothes, pencil cases, and hats. Shops found selling rainbow-colored or LGBTQ-identical items will be dealt with according to law.
Before Saudi Arabia, Qatar also carried out operations to confiscate rainbow-colored toys identified with LGBTQ.
Before the confiscation of rainbow-colored goods, Saudi Arabia had banned the screening of the Disney film Lightyear for featuring same-sex kissing scenes, In addition to Lightyear, the Saudis asked Disney to cut "LGBTQ references" from Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but Disney refused. Due to the refusal, Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was not allowed to appear in all theaters in Saudi Arabia.
