9780983020622: From Wrongs to Gay Rights: Cruelty and change for LGBT people in an uncertain world

In a world where 76+ countries still have laws against homosexuality, a same-sex kiss can lead to a prison sentence or even death. In those countries, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people face arrest for loving the wrong people. Here, in their own words, activists tell what’s going on: >A man sentenced to prison for sending an amorous text. >A transgender woman who needs anonymous health care. >An archbishop who wonders: Dildos for AIDS widows? >A gay priest who struggles with his own homophobia. >Gay rights groups under attack from police and mobs. >The exuberance of Uganda’s first Pride Parade. The authors include LGBT activists in Cameroon, Uganda, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Zimbabwe. Many chapters of this book appeared first in the “Erasing 76 Crimes” blog, which exposes the human toll of anti-LGBT laws. Proceeds from the sale of the book will be used to support the blog as well as the work of activists seeking a better life for sexual minorities worldwide.
