Travel in Islamic countries by known gays



With all of the media reports of horrific prosecutions and persecutions of gays in many Islamic countries, I have wondered if it is dangerous for someone publicly known to be homosexual (as from a visible website) to visit countries like Saudi Arabia or even Egypt (say, to visit the Pyramids or other archeological sites). Could someone be held as a prisoner there for having published "illegal" (in Islamic law) materials on the Internet before travel?
