Gay & Lesbian Travellers

Homosexuality is criminalised in Tunisia. Sexual acts between two consenting adults of the same sex are punishable by up to three years imprisonment.

Since the 2011 revolution there has been an increase in activism by local LGBT groups, and among Tunisia's young urban population there is often a growing acceptance of LGBT rights, even if this is yet to transform into an active, open scene. The online Tunisian magazine Gayday (www.facebook.com/gayday.mag) offers insights into LGBT lives in Tunisia.
