Morocco’s First Gay Magazine Adopts Predictable Name

The new Moroccan magazine (premiering earlier this month and published, in Arabic, by editors in Madrid) is titled Mithly, which translates from Arabic to English as “gay.” Innovative! (But no more innovative than Out There, the new bi-annual “homoculture” journal.) But maybe, while North America and Western Europe shrug at the word “gay,” it’s still nom de controversy, as Morrocan conservatives are apparently losing their shit over it.
