In June, a campaign called #Fetrah was started in Egypt to oppose homosexuality and went viral on social media. Fetrah means ‘human instinct’ in Arabic and the campaign is being used to circulate the idea that only two genders exist: male and female. The hashtag is being shared with a pink and blue flag.
