A study titled "Sexually Guilty: Custom Morality and the Persecution of the LGBTQ Community in Egypt," by the Cairo 52 legal research institute explores how Egyptian authorities construct custom morality to rationalize the persecution of the LGBTIQ+ community. The study analyzes methods used in the arrest and prosecution of queer individuals, emphasizing how these practices violate constitutional protections, due process rights, and contribute to the overall erosion of the rule of law in Egypt.
