2014, 47 pages

Vietnam’s laws, policies and decrees do not explicitly discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals but their rights are not legally protected and they are socially marginalised. In order to understand how LGBT civil society organisations can affect legal and social change with regard to the laws that regulate sexual norms and unions, this empirical study explores the mobilisation strategies of civil society organisations to hold gay pride events, and collective action to legalise same-sex ceremonies and marriages. The case studies were written in close consultation with Vietnamese LGBT civil society actors and with formally and informally organised groups that are distinct from mass organisations. The interviews are conducted with LGBT activists, national and international policy experts, researchers and development experts.

The result is a simple and clear explanatiion of what LGBTI rights are. That they are neither "Special Rights", nor "New Rights". They are basic human rights. GKT urges the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) to endorse the Yogyakarta Principles and/or this local presentation of the Principles in public forums and to sponsor training and awareness?raising activities.

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).
