Although tangier has a long history as a gay haven, it doesn't have any official gay venues today. Morocco still criminalises homosexuality. In the 50s, it was more a case of overlooking gay activities rather than accepting gay people. The reality on the ground has always been nuanced, to say the least. Tangier is still home to many people who are drawn to the bohemian promise of the city, as described by William Burroughs and Joe Orton.
The lights of Tangier can be seen twinkling over the water from the south coast of Spain. You can take a ferry to Tangier from Algeciras to begin your Morrocan adventure. In Tangier, you can visit the Caves of Hercules and see where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. You can also walk in the footsteps of Burroughs and Joe Orton and see if the old Interzone of 50s Tangier can still be seen.
