The Mawjoudin Queer Film Festival (MQFF) returned to the Tunisian capital for its third edition after being postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was a long-awaited occasion for LGBTQI community members to finally meet up again in person.
“First and foremost, it’s a space of visibility, representation and awareness for the LGBTQ community. And it’s a place of cultural and human exchange,” Karam Aouini, one of the MQFF organizers, told Al-Monitor. “We are really happy to be back.”
