Homosexuality remains a crime in Lebanon, but the country is unusual and unique among Arab-majority nations in that it has a small internal gay rights movement. This is leading to a gay life in places like Beirut which are quietly flourishing.
Lebanon may not be somewhere that first springs to mind when you are planning your next holiday but after a chat with Bertho Makso you may think differently. It's sound like a safe and inviting place that is finding new life without loosing it's traditions and culture. Travelling can open up your eyes, and your mind, to new people, new ways of living and you ways of thinking. If this is what travel means to you then maybe you should consider a trip to Lebanon.
