Support for LGBTI Rights in Morocco
Posted: 05 Dec 2022
The International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL) supports the legal progress of decriminalisation of gay sexual relations and the repeal of Article 489 of the Penal Code of Morocco. We further reaffirm our support of efforts towards full equality of the LGBTI community in issues concerning marriage, families, parenting and domestic violence in Morocco and throughout the world.
At its annual meeting in Marrakech, Morocco, 30 November – 4 December 2022, the International Academy of Family Lawyers, with the support of Moroccan LGBT activists issued the above press release articulating its position of support for LGBTI Rights in Morocco and internationally.
The IAFL Issues Relating to Gender and Sexuality Committee has worked hand in hand with the IAFL Executive Committee and Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Committee in raising awareness, educating its members and in providing this public statement of support concerning LGBT matters. The IAFL's CLE efforts in this area continue.
