Uganda Report of LGBT Violations 2015 launched
On 23rd July 2015, the 2015 Uganda report of violations based on gender identity and sexual orientation was launched at Imperial Royale Hotel.
The report documented 89 cases of violations of rights of persons based on their gender identity and sexual orientation. Violations in 47 cases were perpetrated by state actors especially the Uganda Police Force. The report also highlights the influence of the Anti-Homosexuality Act in the violations that occurred in 2014. It reveals increased violation of rights of LGBT people by non state actors- there was increased mob attacks, family rejection, evictions and media outings. On behalf of the consortium, we thank you all for participating in the launch and the support that you have all shown us.
