A Moroccan citizen sent a photo against the penal code which criminalizes gays in Morocco. The sign says: “In solidarity with homosexuals. Love is not a crime.” Another speaks from Tunisia: “We are human like everyone else, we are everywhere and we deserve to be recognized.” “The Love campaign” launched by an online magazine calls on Muslims in the Arab world to, through Facebook, support a campaign against sexual discrimination especially laws that criminalize gays. But the initiative, which began yesterday in the international day against homophobia, will be active for the entire month of May.
