vietnam

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.

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.
