TUNISIA: Show solidarity with the LGBTI community
The Tunisian Penal Code criminalises same-sex sexual relations between adults. It also includes articles that criminalise acts and expression that are “offensive or undermine public morals and decency” and which are used to prosecute people based on the expression of their gender identity. These laws put LGBTI people at risk of arrest and prosecution on the basis of their real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity and create a climate of abuse from State and non-State actors with little accountability.
This pride season we are showing solidarity with LGBTI peoples across Tunisia.
