Name:Survey of Sexual Minorities in Central and West Africa
Description:

Survey from QAYN2012, 39 pages

Over the past four years, the West and Central Africa sub-regions have seen a rapidly growing flame of controversy, political debates and media attention on questions related to the existence, identities and rights of sexual minority. Most notably, recent cases in Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Cameroon, have served as a catalyst for debates and increased visibility of the realities of this population. However, very little data exists on this community.

This research enriches the “library” of data on the realities of LGBTI in Africa, “library” that has started to be built across the continent. For instance, in researches conducted in countries such as Cameroon, Morocco, Nigeria and Senegal, it was highlighted how the question of homosexuality is increasingly becoming a problematic one. One the other hand, these researches also show how it is becoming more and more challenging for African politicians to declare without reservation that homosexuality is “un-African”, since the respondents of these research projects are African, living on the continent who have voluntarily taken part in the studies, despite the social and political context in their countries.
