My word! I believe this qualifies as “Gay Bashing”!
That was the punishment handed down in Saudi Arabia for a group of men accused of dancing like women:
More than 100 young men caught dancing and “behaving like women” at a private party were sentenced this month to a total of 14,200 lashes, after a trial behind closed doors and without defense lawyers. The men were also given jail sentences of up to two years.

The Saudi Institute is also reporting on the raid on the gay party in Saudi Arabia and the sentencing of gays:
Dozens of participants in a gay wedding arrested mid March in Jeddah were sentenced to torture and prison terms, Dubai-based Al-Arabiya TV, reported today.
The TV reported that two gays were sentenced to two years in prison and torture-by-flogging 2000 times, and 31 others were sentenced to six month to a year and 200 floggings.
On 14 of March, 110 Saudi men were arrested in Jeddah attending a gay wedding party for the two men. Homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia and is punished by jail, torture and at times death. Although homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia, several members of the ruling tribe are gays, such as Princess Buniah Bint Saud bin AbdulAziz AlSaud , the cousin of Saudi Ambassador Bandar Sultan. She was arrested in 2001 in Florida for abusing her Indonesian maid and later deported.
The FrontPage article also tells of the beheading of homosexuals:
…in January 2002 that three men in the southern city of Abha had been “beheaded for homosexuality”.
