Egyptian Gay Organization Demands Equal Rights

Egyptian Gay Organization Demands Equal Rights

A new Egyptian gay organization called “The Lovers” garnered 600 members in the first two weeks of its existence.

Organization members are calling on the government to recognize their rights, to appoint a minister in charge of their affairs, and to permit them to establish a party.

The organization’s head said that homosexual relations are illegal in Egypt even though the gay community numbers over 100,000.
