Silenced voices2015, 38 pages

This report from PEN America and PEN Nigeria, uses potent and poignant individual testimonies by LGBTI Nigerians to demonstrate how the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act of 2014 has distorted Nigeria’s cultural and political landscape by silencing the country’s LGBTI community through state-sanctioned intimidation and marginalization. Drawing on interviews with local LGBTI authors, artists, activists, and their allies, the report details the cascading effects of a law that, while purporting to target same sex marriage, has infringed upon rights to free speech, access to health care, housing, and employment, interfered with civil and political rights, and led to wholesale impunity for violence against LGBTI people. The report documents the cases of writers unable to publish their books, poems, and stories, organizations forbidden from meeting, social media communities chilled by government infiltration, and rising incidents of blackmail and extortion directed at LGBTI individuals. The report showcases Nigeria’s at-risk literary and artistic traditions with works by prominent writers and artists from Nigeria’s LGBTI community and diaspora, including Unoma Azuah, Jude Dibia, and Adejoke Tugbiyele.

An evaluation report on how Sida (Swedish International Development Agency) addresses its commitments related to sexuality in Kenya (2007).

Sida interviewed people who were a part of their development programmes. Page 5 lists the questions asked, with special focus on how taking up a discussion and ensuing actions on sexuality can lead to better programming and eventually improved wellbeing and quality of life. The report also describes how areas which are not obviously connected to sexual rights, such as agriculture and infrastructure, also have taken significant steps to address sexuality issues in relation to HIV/AIDS and gender and other cross cutting issues. The evaluation report ends with a list of recommendations (page 11).

Malawi Cropped

2015, 55 pages

This human rights violation report focuses on the cases of discrimination, harassment, and marginalisation of LGBTIs in Malawi. Malawi is a country  which legal system still condones the criminalization of consensual same-sex sexual acts, and where the police and the justice system fails to prevent the hate crimes crimes from happening. This report confirms that most perpetrators of violent attacks against LGBTI persons often conduct such attacks in the knowledge that they would never be arrested or prosecuted. The report also confirms that many victims of violence do not report to relevant authorities for fear of arrest, exposure of their sexual orientation or gender identity or because of lack of trust in the authorities.
