Default Gay coming to live in Dubai

I am a British gay man, living within a civil partnership and my partner has been headhunted to take up a senior position with a major multinational in Dubai. Obviously I would plan to live there with him, or there is little point. We wondered how acceptable life is in Dubai for a same sex couple? In the UK, where we live most of the time, we don't go out 'on the scene' so wouldn't be expecting any of that in Dubai, nor would we particularly wish it. However, we would expect to form a good mixed social circle with people interested in similar things to ourselves, and to be able to comfortably live togather. Our backgrounds are in finance, business and the arts. I am a producer (theatre, film, visual and live art), and wondered what sort of cultural scene there is in Dubai and what sort of work I might be able to become involved in?
