LBQ women in Kenya2016, 43 pages

This report from GALCK explores the lived experiences of LBQ women in Kenya. Qualitative research has been carried out in three major towns, and the study provides insight into the scope and experiences of everyday and structural violence facing these women.

The study thus points to where LGBT organisations in Kenya can fine-tune their interventions, and also points out new avenues for strengthening the Kenyan LGBT movement.

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.

Through the Lens LGBT AsiaMay 2014, 248 pages (23 MB)

Lesbians, bisexual women and transgender (LBT) individuals in Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka face violence and exclusion in every sphere of their lives. This violence is fueled by laws that criminalize same-sex relations and gender non-conformity and encouraged by governments who tolerate, endorse, or directly sponsor the violent clamp-down on those who do not follow prevailing norms on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

This is the main finding from research coordinated by the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and conducted over a two-year period by women’s rights, sexuality rights and gender rights activists based in Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Philippines and Sri Lanka. Interviews were conducted in Japanese, English, Malay, Tamil, Urdu, Tagalog, Cebuano, Ilocano and Sinhala. The researchers uncovered high levels of family violence perpetrated against LBT individuals as well as widespread discrimination in education, health and work sectors.

The report can be downloaded in full and in different chapters covering each of the following countries: Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines and Sri Lanka from IGLHRC's website here.

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.
