Indian man convicted of cross dressing

Indian man convicted of cross dressing

Man is charged with cross-dressing in public gets six months in jail


February 1, 2009 4:53 by

A 45-year-old Indian man, identified as P.K. has been convicted of cross-dressing in public by the Dubai Court of Misdemeanours. He was sentenced to six months in jail and ordered to pay a AED10,000 fine, reports Gulf News.

According to policemen, the man’s clothes were covered in glitter. He also wore a bra, mascara, women’s perfume and a wig.

The man insists, however, that he is innocent: “I’m not guilty… I was cross-dressed because I was training to perform a woman’s role in Indian cinema. I didn’t intend to go to the mall but I went there because I received an urgent phone call,” P.K. told the public prosecutor.

The judge suspended the jail term for three years.

Kipp didn’t realize that Dubai had a specific law for cross-dressing in public. Is cross-dress in private ok? And does the man really deserve six months in jail? Why? Because he dressed like a woman? It isn’t as though he was flashing little kids.

The best part of this story, however, is the man’s excuse: he was training for a part in a Bollywood movie. Is there a shortage of women in India that we don’t know about?
