Article 489 is a crime against humanity
We will never give up criticizing laws that are restricting human rights and punish the individual for the body she/ he was born with. Some Moroccan laws are against human nature which evolves. How can you let these laws be stuck in the past?! We were born gay even if your laws say the opposite. We were born gays, but because your laws are religiously dated, you rule that we are acting against nature. Wake up Morocco!
The hardship about being gay in Morocco comes not only from the society and culture, but from the laws and system of the punishment imposed by the state. The government sadly made people believe that homosexuality must be punishable that it is as dangerous to the society as other serious crimes. Homosexuality should not be a crime.

Our greatest capital is our sense of solidarity and togetherness. We understand that our struggle is difficult within this political, religious, cultural and social conservatism of Morocco, but we will not give up as we know that there are plenty of people out there who support us. Don't let pessimism carries you away from the fact that you could change what people think is unchangeable. Let's keep our sense of solidarity. Let's keep together all against the injustice and recklessness of the Moroccan laws regarding the LGBT

I care about human rights. I care about people. I care about anything that brings happiness to the world. Let us all do good for this world. We don't have to be harsh on others to show them that we are brave! We don't have to sound superior to those who need us. We are one and we should be always one.
Difference should be our richness. Compassion should be our feature of our passion. With love we can survive. With love we can challenge our difficulties. I stand with human rights. I stand with love and equality for all human beings, no matter what their gender, sexual orientations, race and regions are. I will keep fighting for freedom, equality and tolerance by spreading love and making people aware that we are all equal, no matter what politics try to make us believe. I am here for LGBT rights in Morocco.
That is me. Will you be like me?
Please join us for our human rights case to make the Moroccan government legalize homosexuality in Morocco. This is a very important issue for us, as this year so many people were jailed, attacked, abused, raped for being gay.
The appalling conditions that gay people go through during their prison terms leave them with life-enduring traumas, rejection from their families, friends and job-market. LGBT community is leaving in constant fear as we are enable to report crimes and attacks against us to the Police! We need a law that protects us from violence and death threat not a law that makes us criminals!
Amnesty International calls for the decriminalization of homosexuality where such legislation remains, including a review of all legislation which could result in the discrimination, prosecution and punishment of people solely for their sexual orientation or gender identity. All such laws should be repealed or amended.Morocco should make a move and protect the LGBT community!
Gay rights are human rights and excluding them from the agenda of protection of human rights in any country is a pure hypocrisy and oppression. Countries where you are punish for your sexual orientation like Morocco choose what suits its political and religious agenda over humanity and justice. Morocco, be inclusive not selective!
