Is there a "gay scene" in Tunisia?

Im going for a weeks holiday to Tunisia in July'09 to Skanes, and wondered if there are any gay clubs or gay friendly bars? I know homosexual activity is illegal over there and im not looking for rent boys or anything like that, im just looking for somewhere to go for a laugh and a dance! Haha

So please let me know =)

NO!

That's a Muslim country. You said it your self, been gay is illegal. How are there supposed to be gay bars around?

Being gay is not illegal - how do you stop yourself being gay lol. Homesexual activity is illegal and prosecution is not unknown although not on the scale of some other muslim countries. Have a look at this link, very detailed link to gay life in Tunisia. http://www.gayegypt.com/gayguidtotun.html

Maybe I wrote it the wrong way, my English is not very good. I meant you'll not see gay people expressing their selves as freely as they'd behave in a European country for example...

Of course there are gay people in Tunisia as there are everywhere on the world.

Sorry mariha2912 I didnt mean to pick on your english. I just wanted to re-assure any gay tourist that they would not be arrested for being gay. To get back to your post Escort1990 Tunisia is very male orientated so if you just want to dance and have laugh any disco/club will be okay as long as you do not overstep the mark and be overly suggestive. Just sit in any cafe/bar and you will be approached by young tunisian men - unfornately most want a little cash return. Just keep your hand on your wallet and other hand on your heart regarding sob luck sorry's and you will have good holiday.
