This thesis will look into the social movement of LGBT people in Lebanon and discuss various perspectives of its mobilization. The thesis will offer an understanding on how activists in Lebanon form and view their strategies towards decriminalising homosexuality and protecting LGBT people from discrimination, and they work on empowering the community. It will look at the efforts of LGBT rights organizations in Lebanon that are aiming to create a reliable community for LGBT people, while pragmatically advocating for LGBT rights. By an interpretation of Article 534 in the Lebanese penal code, homosexuality is considered unnatural, and LGBT people are regularly imprisoned on the basis of this law. There are also indications of that the general opinion does not accept homosexuality. Moreover, this thesis offers an understanding on how the LGBT rights movement counters the general public’s view, in a manner that resonates with the authorities, generates acceptance, and empower the movement.
