LGBT+ Travel Guide
Morocco in one word is vibrant. From the white, snow-capped Atlas Mountains to the golden hues of the Sahara Desert to the lush green farms, travelers to this north African country are immersed in the vibrant colors of a geographically diverse nation. Setting foot in one of the ancient medinas will transport you to a world from the past: narrow streets with towering walls and markets (souks) full of artisan goods, spice-laden food and bustling crowds of people.
For the LGBT+ traveler it’s important to note here that in Morocco homosexual acts are illegal and punishable by up to three years in prison. Even though this is not always enforced, it’s smart to use street sense and avoid PDAs (public displays of affection) as this is culturally frowned upon for both opposite and same-sex couples. As in any country, respect local customs and most people will not be hostile.
