Tunisian organisation working for equality
The Initiative Mawjoudin for equality, known as Mawjoudin (Arabic for We Exist), is an officially registered non-governmental organization based in Tunisia.
We are fighting against discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation and we are promoting equal rights for all.
Mawjoudin was founded in 2014 by a group of young activists, feminists and LGB persons, who have been working together in other activist groups. We were alarmed by the situation of LGBTQI+ persons and by the restrictions put on bodily and sexual rights in Tunisia. We have created Mawjoudin in order to contribute towards changing the situation of LGBTQI+ people and the norms forced on bodies and sexuality.
