    According to Pink News - Two men arrested in Tunisia in December 2016 for apparently 'looking gay' have been sentenced to eight months in prison.

    So much for a new emerging democracy....

    Yes it is cruel that someone gets fengel because they have a different orientation one it shows us that the country is going in the wrong direction and that there is no democracy. Tunisia has long way to go regarding both gays and of women. It seems to me that the Arab world has the wrong mindset regarding freedom
