The rights of the LGBTQ + community in Tunisia: between reality and expectations

This policy brief addresses the problems faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+)[1] community in Tunisia and identifies the forms of oppression, violence and exclusion it suffers. It proposes political, economic, and social policies that aim to protect LGBTQ+ rights and promote a culture that accepts the right to be different. This cultural shift would be an indicator of the democratic transition’s success.
