Reports (5)
  • Newer law has been passed "Age of consent is not just unequal, consensual homosexual sexual behavior is punishable by government officials. It holds its illegal status regardless of the age of the people involved."
  • Status is not correct "Age of consent is not equal in Egypt. Homosexual sexual behavior itself is punishable by government officials, regardless of age. Many consensual sexual behaviors are punishable in Egypt (regardless of the sex/gender of the partners) especially in cases of "adultery" and (perceived) prostitution. Many LGBTQIA+ people are arrested based on their perceived or actual Orientation, Gender Identity, or Sexual Characteristics. The actual justification for the act of conviction is usually done by accusing them of spreading "debauchery" in the Egyptian society, since neither (S)OGIESCs* nor any sexual acts are explicitly mentioned in the Egyptian constitution or laws."
  • Status is not correct "Homosexuality is illegal in Egypt, thus there's no equal age of consent, since homosexual sex is illegal at any age."
  • Status is not correct
  • Status is not correct "While there's an age of consent of 18 in Egypt, homosexuality is illegal, so there is no age of consent, as it's a criminal offense regardless."
