Last February, activists called for a boycott of the Beverly Hills Hotel in LA due to the hotel’s ownership by Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei, the leader of a country where homosexuality is illegal. Recently, the situation in Brunei has become even more dire, with a UN-condemned (and Sultan-sponsored) law that would make gay sex punishable by stoning to death. According to a report by FrontiersLA.com, Gay activist Cleve Jones and others are asking the public to boycott any of the hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei, including the entire Dorchester Collection which is under his control.
