To avoid offending the locals. We may not agree with their beliefs,
but to avoid trouble, it's often best just to go along with them. Is
it really a big enough issue to prevent us going to Egypt?
The gay couples I know of who travelled to Egypt as tourists stayed
together without any hassle.
I haven't found any sources recommending staying separately.
Again... if there are legitimate travel warnings, at any level (from
private sources, blogs, magazines, anything) with specifics about
Egypt and LGBT travellers please let's see them.
