LGBT radio station launches in Tunisia despite fear of violence

An online LGBT radio station has launched in Tunisia, believed to be the first in the Arab world.

The LGBT group Shams set up the radio station which hopes to deal with opposition to LGBT rights in the North African state. 

The Shams Rad station has the slogan “dignity, equality”, and prominent activist will present shows.

Despite the launch, the station and those running it have still been receiving threats.

Director general Bouhdid Belhadi said the station will air from breakfast time to midnight.
