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.

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.
