Marokkaanse in Turkije zet aan tot outen en opjagen homo- en biseksuele mannen in Marokko

Vanuit Turkije zet Naoufal Moussa / Sofia Talouni vrouwen in Marokko aan Planet Romeo en Grindr te downloaden op zoek naar hun mannen, zonen, broers en neven. Homoseksualiteit is niet alleen sociaal taboe maar ook strafbaar in Marokko.

Moussa riep vorige week maandag haar 600.000 volgers op Instagram op om de gay datingapps te downloaden. Ze zette Marokkaanse vrouwen aan een vals profiel als bottom te maken om zo de mannen te lokken.

Waarom Moussa, een Marokkaanse transvrouw die in Marokko woont dit doet, is onduidelijk. Haar geverifieerd profiel werd verwijderd maar ze maakt nieuwe aan. Fotograaf Hamza Makchoune vermoed dat ze zelf werd verstoten en nu wraak wil nemen. 

Planet Romeo heeft intussen een bericht gestuurd naar de 41.000 gebruikers in Marokko met een waarschuwing. Maar toch zijn er al gevallen van outing gekend. Een iemand pleegde al zelfmoord.

To whom it may concern, We are urgently writing to ask skateholders, organizations, associations and institutions to take immediate action by informing the concerned authorities about an active social media influencer, specifically on Instagram in order to take steps against her/him. The Instagram user’s account is named : Naoufalmoussa The person’s name is Naoufal Moussa that is known in Morocco as Sofia Talouni. Moussa is a Moroccan expat living in Turkey. He/she has got a large number of followers on her verified Instagram account, where he/she has recently began to broadcast live videos of herself that aim to expose the identities of the Moroccan queer people. Many of those people live with their families, especially nowadays due to the quarantine. Sofia clearly attacked and underestimated the Moroccan civil society associations, especially the AIDS fighting associations that are making a great effort and work really hard for the safety and well-being of the LGBTQA+ community and the Moroccan society as a whole. While homosexuality is illegal in the Moroccan law (Article 489 of the Penal Code of Morocco criminalises "lewd or unnatural acts with an individual of the same sex") and seen as a great sin by a large number of Moroccan people, homophobia is a very common act which the LGBTQA+ community suffers from here. Therefore, publically exposing the identities of the Moroccan queer people puts them at risk. Moussa has intentionally outed a lot of queer Moroccans on her Instagram live videos, as he/she has shown his/her homophobic audience the social platforms that queer people use. Such as, Grindr, Hornet, Planet Romeo…etc and encouraged them to create fake accounts to look for LGBTQA+ people there. This process has been really dangerous and harmful to the LGBTQA+ community. We urge you to contact the concerned authorities to instantly suspend the Instagram account Naoufalmoussa pending review. Then, ban him/her from the platform due to the policy of hate/speech and violence.
