We are travelling to New Zealand to see family in January and as flying Emirates are planning to try break up the trip with a 2-3 days stop over. I heard Dubai is fairly relaxed UAE state, and Dubai seems ideal with large resort hotels and water parks, we would really only be based in the hotel complex by the pool or day trip out during day to water park. However obviously our concern is we a 2 gay men with a 5 year old, although we are discrete, there would be do doubt we are 2 men travelling with a child. He often likes to hold both our hands when we out etc as most children so with their parents. I guess I wondering if we are being unfair here expecting to receive fascistic treatment from people based on rumours and gossip people have started telling us who havnt even been there themselves.
