Online magazine Aswat is calling upon Arab citizens to speak out against homophobia.

Aswat Magazine is publishing user-submitted photos aimed at reducing discrimination faced by the gay community in the Arab world as part of its ‘Love For All’ campaign.

The magazine is sharing the images on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Interviewed by Tunisia Live, activist Maher al Haj spoke about the campaign, ‘We aim to educate not only the LGBTQ Arab community but also reach out to others as well who might have many misconceptions about us.

‘We are humans like others, we exist everywhere and we deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated within the fabrics of our societies like all other groups in society.’
