France, a land of freedom for LGBT Arabs
Issued on: Modified:
Since most Arab countries criminalise homosexuality, same-sex unions are only possible in some countries abroad. Here in France, an imam has been offering his blessings to same-sex marriages for four years now. Among these couples, many are of Arab origin and some have travelled or emigrated to the country to benefit from France's law legalising same-sex unions. Thameen Kheetan reports.
