Tunisia is another country located in Africa, this time in the Northern part however. In Tunisia, the double standard between Gay men and women is disgustingly obvious. It is legal for women to take part in same sex activity, but for men they can face criminal charges. With these charges, men caught taking part in sexual acts with other men may face up to three years behind bars. In some cases, the men may even be charged with sodomy for sexual acts. In 2013 a Tunisian opposition party leader was caught having sex with a man and charged with sodomy, some believed for propaganda.
