The struggle for queer freedom in Africa


In most African countries, LGBT people face criminalisation and violence, which is at best unopposed by Africa’s churches and at worst supported by them. Variously described as a “homosexual terrorist” and a “national hero”, Peter Tatchell, who twice attempted to arrest Robert Mugabe, discusses the struggle for queer freedom in Africa..

Peter Tatchell has been a human rights campaigner for more than 40 years. As well as campaigning to complete the struggle for gay and lesbian equality in the UK, Peter also works in solidarity with human rights activists in many other countries, including Iran, Uganda, Iraq and Zimbabwe.
