Tunisian feminist and LGBT activists once again came together this year to hold the second edition of Chouftouhonna, Tunisia’s International Feminist Art Festival. The festival ran throughout the IDAHOT period and featured art and performances from campaigners and profressional artists, that included several pieces focused on the experiences of LGB women.
On an international level, an online campaign was launched by Amnesty International targeting Tunisia’s anti-gay laws. The campaign calls upon the government to lift anti-homosexual laws used to target and persecute gay and bisexual men, and also included a petition.
Due to the security and legal concerns facing Tunisia’s LGBT community there were no public events held to mark IDAHOT 2016. If you are a campaigner or activist in Tunisia and would like to tell us about your plans or action please get in touch.
