In collaboration with the Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality (AFE), Human Rights Watch released a video, Monday, June 24. The footage, published on the Human Rights Watch Facebook page, aims to examine and combat the myths and stereotypes faced by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people in the MENA region. Human Rights Watch and the AFE invited several participants, who all self-define as LGBT, from Arab countries to discuss these controversial subjects. Four of the participants were Moroccan. Unlike some participants who preferred to remain anonymous for their own safety and to avoid any aggressive reactions of their societies, the young Moroccans, all in their 20s, expressed their opinions openly. In the video, whose idea is to respond to “recurring stereotypes” in the MENA region, these activists shared their own experiences.
