Summary

Tanzania is yet another country facing even more severe LGBT persecution, as a tougher anti-LGBT bill is being introduced into the Parliament and may be up for vote.As you're well aware, these laws are making it ever more dangerous for people living with HIV/AIDS to get access to health care, not to mention all of the other effects of the rising homophobia, we are working hard to make sure the Bill does not go through.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Although the only laws used to discriminate against LGBTI people in Tanzania are archaic provisions of the penal code related to sodomy, in practice discrimination against this minority group is widespread and deep-rooted. Although verifiable data on the scale of this discrimination does not exist, anecdotal evidence suggests that anyone who openly identifies as an LGBTI person puts themselves at risk of losing their job, access to government services including health care,family ties.

How will this project solve this problem?

All donations will be used on the efforts to prevent the passing of a new bill to suppress the rights of LGBTI people by ensuring that awareness is spread through the civil society, policy making and donor community about the negative implications of such a move, and generate more broad-based support for the LGBTI community in Tanzania from all sections of society through careful, incremental public education initiatives.

Potential Long Term Impact

We believe that without the anti-LGBTI law Tanzania will be a better and safe for more than 2 million LGBTI people to live ,enjoying their fundamental human, accessing all services without discrimination based on gender identity and sex orientation. Donations to this project will have the potential to create a strong, sophisticated, and vibrant organizations meeting the needs, advancing the rights, and celebrating the lives of LGBTI people and communities in Tanzania
