Controversial Gay
Seminar Blamed on Foreign Collaborators

Socially conservative leaders in Morocco are blaming foreign elements for a controversial seminar on gender and sexuality scheduled to be held in the North African country in April.

Socially conservative leaders in Morocco are blaming foreign elements for a controversial seminar on gender and sexuality scheduled to be held in the North African country in April.

Kif Kif, a Moroccan gay group, announced that it would hold the seminar to help people address issues they may be reluctant to discuss for religious and cultural reasons. Homosexual acts are illegal in the Muslim nation.

Sex researcher Hassan Serrat was among those who expressed skepticism that the Moroccan gay community could organize such an event without foreign interference.

"They are definitely getting foreign support, especially from British and Spanish gay rights associations," he told AlArabiya.net.

Serrat suggested the assistance was the result of Spanish anger at the arrests of gay citizens in Morocco.

"It seems the International Lesbian and Gay Association delegated the homosexuals of Spain to defend those of Morocco," he said.

The International Lesbian and Gay Association is a network of groups working to advance gay rights throughout the world.

A spokesperson for Kif Kif denied that the organization is receiving help from foreign partners.
