Browse 50shadesofgayofficial's Instagram "To be different is not easy. To be black, Arab and gay is still very difficult.” Salah is fashion designer in the Tunisian capital, Tunis. He grew up fearing his mother's reaction should she find out his sexuality. It was his brother that outed him. He was surprised and delighted by his mother's response: "My brother explained that her son is having sex with other men and she said ‘and so?’ My brother then told her that everyone is talking about it and she replied ‘as long as he doesn’t bring the police to our home, he can do whatever he wants with his life."

Photo @Hammond_Robin. “We moved from place to place, lied to families and friends. We had to pretend and to be someone else. We love each other and we will never give up on each other, whatever happens.” Abdesattar (left) and Walid (right) are a #gay couple from Tunisia. They have been together for five years, but because of hostile attitudes towards same sex relationships in the region and laws that make some consensual same sex acts a crime, they have kept their relationship hidden. They have lied to family, colleagues and their landlords, saying they are just friends or cousins. The photographer, fearing for their safety, offered to conceal their identities. "No," Walid said, “now it is time." They posed for the camera, removing their shirts to show each other’s names tattooed on their chests. Like their love, once a secret, now revealed for the world to see. -

Browse whereloveisillegal's Instagram “As a non binary gender queer person I’ve never been able to express myself the way I want to because I may be called 'faggot' 'sissy' 'pervert' etc…” Rzouga is a non binary, gender #queer person from #Tunisia. When he told his mother, she asked him to go to a psychologist. In his first consultation, he would not say he identifies as #LGBTQI+ fearing the psychologist’s reaction. The second time though, when he entered he said “good morning, I’m a homosexual person. I was not raped, I was not forced to be. I was born and I choose to stay as a homosexual person. I am not having a problem with myself as a gay person.” To his surprise, his psychologist was supportive in particular in dealing with his mother.
