Tunisia: 'I am not a monster': State-entrenched discrimination and homophobia in Tunisia
Same-sex relations and LGBTI rights remain taboo and mainly unaccepted by society. Many LGBTI people experience rejection, discrimination, harassment and violence by their families and communities at every stage of their life. In mid-April 2016, a Tunisian actor stated in a televised interview that "homosexuality" is a disease. Soon after, LGBTI activists shared photographs on social media of signs in stores and taxis banning LGBTI people from entering.
