Gay Dictionary Berber/Tamazight
How to say gay in Berber / Tamazight
Below are the words of our Berber / Tamazight Gay Dictionary that we will expand in new editions. If you know any more, please, contact us. But first some information about the language and where it is spoken.
The Berber or Tamazight are a family of Afro-Asiatic macrofamily languages, spoken by Berbers in North Africa groups, about twenty million people, mostly in Morocco and Algeria.
The situation of LGBT people in Morocco and Algeria is bad since sexual diversity is condemned till 6 months in prison, even for tourists, although it is usually more permissive with the latter so as not to harm the tourism sector. However, this was not always the case, as we can see in art and literature until the 13th century when the Qur'an's follow-up became stricter. Nevertheless, we must also highlight the city of Tangier and then all Morocco as a (homo) sexual destination in the 50s for artists and intellectuals of the time. Every year there are usually convictions of homosexuals, and aggressions and even some death executions, for honor, are usually tolerated.
We want to thank Fekri for his collaboration in the realization of our Berber / Tamazight Gay Dictionary.
