TO: Beji Caid Essebsi, President of the Republic of Tunisia, and the Assembly of the Representatives of the People of Tunisia

Article 230 has been hurting so many people across Tunisia – and it's time to put an end to it.

We are calling on you to do what's right and get rid of Tunisia's anti-gay law once and for all.

Want to find out if we win this campaign?

Because of new regulations, we can only let you know if Tunisia will end anti-gay laws if you sign up to receive emails from us.

So – can we email you about this and other urgent campaigns for LGBT+ rights?

Are you sure? If you choose 'Yes', we'll let you know if/when Tunisia will end anti-gay laws. You can unsubscribe at any time. Select 'No', and we won't sign you up, but we will store your information for the petition delivery.

UPDATE – 13 August 2018: As expected, Tunisia's president made an announcement today – but said nothing about decriminalising homosexuality. We won't back down. We'll keep working to pressure Tunisian lawmakers to get rid of the country's anti-gay law.


UPDATE – 10 August 2018: More than 40 organisations and activists from around the world signed on an open letter to Tunisia's president Beji Caid Essebsi, urging him to abolish Tunisia's anti-gay law.


In August 2017, the Tunisian President put together a committee to review its discriminatory laws. Their recommendation was clear: the law that makes it illegal to be gay in Tunisia must go.

For that to happen, President Beji Caid Essebsi and Tunisian MPs must take the next step.

LGBT+ people have been fighting tooth and nail to make love legal in Tunisia and this is a unique opportunity to make it happen.

Sign now and tell Tunisian authorities to end the country's anti-gay law once and for all.

This is a campaign of the All Out Action Fund, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit organization.
