This chapter examines dramatic transformations in the discussion of gender and sexuality—especially homosexuality—in Morocco in the first decade of the 21st century. Looking at the major impact of YouTube on Morocco, and with extended readings of a Casablanca digital pirate, a young woman’s controversial film about teens, and the first openly gay Moroccan writer, this chapter explains how circulation affects the discussion of national and sexual identity in Morocco.

Keywords:   Morocco, digital piracy, YouTube, Abdellah Taia, Leila Marrakchi, homosexuality
