Protecting morals2013, 88 pages

This report from Ugandan organisations The Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CSCHRCL) and Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) is a voice in the debate on the Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

The laws criminalising same-sex conduct in Uganda have been in existence since Uganda became
a British protectorate late in the 19th century. No single conviction or even acquittal (indicating
a full trial) has been found in the law books in Kampala in the last five years (2007 –2011), and
arguably none has ever been recorded in Uganda’s legal history. Nevertheless, the laws are used
every day to intimidate, harass, and degrade LGBTI persons.

TZ human rights 2013June 2013, 110 pages

This report from Human Rights Watch results from research conducted between May 2012 and April 2013 by Human
Rights Watch and Wake Up and Step Forward Network (WASO), a Dar es Salaam-based
network of groups that represent men who have sex with men. It documents human rights
violations experienced by sex workers, people who use drugs, and lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI), including MSM. It also exposes the very
troubling situation of sexual exploitation of children in sex work. The report highlights two
main categories of human rights violations: those for which law enforcement officials bear
primary responsibility, and those within the health sector.

Between usAugust 2013, 32 pages

Between Us: The complexities of Lesbian, Bisexual and
Queer Women’s Organizing in Francophone Sub-Saharan
Africa is a compass to all who are struggling to work
within the complex landscape of sub-Saharan African
LBQWSW (lesbian, bisexual, queer, women who have sex with women) organising. This is a groundbreaking initiative
that points us towards, and keeps our focus on, the
right kind of support to give struggling communities and
emerging LBQWSW organizers in sub-Saharan Africa.

Although this report is based on case studies of
LBQWSW-led organizing work conducted in two different
francophone African regions, Cameroun and Togo,
we hope that the findings will give all readers a good idea
of what is obtainable in sub-Saharan Africa because of
the similarities in our socio-cultural and policy environments,
especially as they relate to sexual diversity and
human rights.
