PRINTING AND DISSEMINATING BROCHURES ON SEXUAL MINORITY RIGHTS

By MBABAZI BUSINGYE | PROGRAMS MANAGER

One major challenge that advocacy on Sexual Minority Rights has always had is the lack of awareness of Sexual Minority Rights amongst the general public, the aftereffect of which is the stigma and discrimination being faced by LGBTI’s in Rwanda.

As a mitigating factor to this challenge that has stood out for some time Human Rights First Rwanda Association undertook to design and prepare LGBTI brochures that would be disseminated to multiple stakeholders who include Human Rights Defenders, Legislators, Lawyers, Church Community folk as well as the Sexual Minority groups themselves.

These brochures which are designed in user friendly wording and imagery elaborate the need to respect Sexual Minority Rights from all members of the public from all fields of life and the respective roles they may all play in advocating and lobbying for LGBTI rights and freedoms.

The reception of these materials by the public was nothing short of astounding as the populace seem to be more enlightened on sexual minority rights and the wonderful  momentum created through the education as an advocacy tool.

We continue to appreciate the kindness of our donors and contributors and invite them to play a participatory role in ensuring that we kick away the societal stigma that exists for LGBTI’s in Rwanda and the great lakes region at large, by offering suggestions and ideas on how to create an impact through this project that would be felt for generations to come having the ultimate result of having sexual minority rights upheld in totality.
