Grindr witch-hunt sparks fresh call to make gay sex legal in Morocco

Morocco is facing fresh demands to decriminalize gay sex after women started outing gay and bi men using dating apps. As GSN reported last week, a Moroccan expat living in Turkey called Naofal Moussa or Sofia Talouni sparked the crisis. She is a social media influencer and went on Instagram Live to tell Moroccan women about Grindr, PlanetRomeo and other apps. She told women to use fake photos of men to catfish men using the gay dating and hook-up apps. And speaking in Moroccan Arabic, Moussa said (translated): ‘These apps will show you the people who are near to you. 100 meters, 200 meters, even just one meter, just next to you in the living room. ‘Since everyone is together at home, it could show you your husband in your bedroom, it could show you your son who might be in the bathroom.’ Moussa didn’t explicitly tell people to use what they found out to publicly out men. But LGBT+ people in Morocco say the catfishers have put their photos and details online.
