This comprehensive report from 2011 (500 pages) is the result of the work of a group of women from Asia and Africa who came together to research into the conditions of women in same-sex relations in their countries.

The report examines LGBT cases from both Africa (Botswana), central Asia and Bangladesh. The purpose of the project is also that the researchers will produce more products, such as books, brochures, articles, films, or other audiovisual items, to continue the fight for sexual justice.

This guide from 2012 is intended as a manual for LGBT activists and NGOs in other countries to help them understand how U.S. embassies work; how to call on U.S. diplomats to support their human rights goals; how to access U.S. support, including both technical and financial support; and how to frame requests in ways that will appeal to strategic U.S. priorities.

The guide also describes two cases in Uganda and Honduras where the US Embassy cooperated closely with civil society in efforts to improve the LGBT rights.
