Live podcast on queer rights in Africa - Klupod

19. juni, kl. 13:30-14:30
Fellesrådet for Afrika
Pride House, Youngstorget
Facebook event

In most African countries LGBT+ rights are considered at best an irrelevant issue, at worst met with hostility. In recent years a number of African leaders have made hostile statements against the LGBT+ community. A majority of African states expressly prohibit homosexual acts and most of these laws were put in place during the colonial era, before the majority of African states gained their independence. What is the situation for LGBT+ people on the continent today?

In the midst of this serious situation, African activist are working to change the current climate through challenging the courts, cultural initiatives and a focus on sexual health. In South Africa same sex marriage is legal and Mozambique recently removed colonial era laws criminalizing "homosexual behavior". How can one work for these positive developments in other African countries?

We invite to a conversation between Keziah Bianca, a Kenyan activist working with health in Amathea and currently residing in Norway, and Tor Kjetil Edland, international advisor for East Africa in FRI. FRI has collaborated closely with LGBT+ organizations in Africa.

The event will take place in venue 2: "Henki Hauge Karlsen".
