At the Last Night of the 2013 BBC Proms soprano Joyce DiDonato dedicated Somewhere Over the Rainbow to gay victims worldwide as a protest against Russia's hardline stance towards homosexuals. On Sept 7, 2014 the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra appear at the Proms for the first time. The orchestra was founded in 2007 by Her Highness Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, one of the wives of the ruler of Qatar. As was pointed out here recently , and I quote verbatim from the UK government foreign travel website: "Homosexual behaviour is illegal in Qatar". Why are some gay causes more fashionable than others?
