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.

This campaign has ended.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates and help us get the word out about our campaigns for love and equality.

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.
