Two killings in as many months have shocked Mongolian LGBT
community. A gay male of forty to fifty years of age who went by a nickname S. in the
community, a dentist by profession who had a practice in Zuunkharaa town, Selenge province,
was found brutally murdered sometime in January 2011. Although the murder took place over
two and a half months ago, no definitive headway has been made in the case, and no reports of
investigation have been made public. Another member of the community, an HIV positive
bisexual male E. of forty to forty five years of age, one of the founders of a community-based
non-governmental organisation working for HIV positive people, went missing at the end of
February 2011. According to the reports from the community, his mutilated body was found on
24 or 25 March 2011: his right hand was cut off and his body was burnt. Although it is obvious
that these are hate crimes, police questioned only gay and bisexual males in the city in relation to
the latest murder as the gay and bisexual males are immediately considered automatic suspects in

"I think that maybe in the history of Malawi, no one has come out like [Monjeza and Chimbalanga] - I think government was caught unawares. People have been denying that there are MSM in Africa, in Malawi - that gay people exist. I think that this is proof of the existence of such communities in our country and society. <br><br>
"It's a challenge to work under such kind of environment - you don't have a lot of voices coming to support the issues, but these are real issues. People attack you, call you all sorts of names ... but I'm a human rights activist, so that's part of my job. <br><br>
As a country, I don't think we're going forwards, we're going backwards. People are targeted because of their identities [who they are], not because of what they are doing."

MALAWI: Queer Malawi lifts the gay curtain - JOHANNESBURG, 11 May 2011 (PlusNews) : http://www.plusnews.org/report.aspx?reportID=92681 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
JOHANNESBURG, 11 May 2011 (PlusNews) - Africa is generally not a safe place to have a same-sex relationship - you can be shunned by society, beaten up, thrown in jail, or worse. In Malawi you can get 14 years in prison with hard labour. <br><br>In a bold move, Malawi?s Centre for the Development of People (CEDEP) and South Africa?s Gay and Lesbian Memory in Action (GALA) have collected the stories of 12 lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) women and men and published them in a book, Queer Malawi. <br><br> Fear is a theme that runs through the stories in Queer Malawi - fear of not being accepted by family and community, of violence and arrest. Human rights activists noted that the trial heightened anxiety in Malawi?s underground LGBT community and compromised HIV prevention efforts among men who have sex with men (MSM).

Mexico: Homofobia, Ignorancia y falta de presupuesto, obstaculos para la lucha contra el sida / Homophobia, ignorance and lack of funding, obstacles in the fight against AIDS- by Christian Rea Tizcareño, NotieSe.org, on10/25/06: http://www.notiese.org/notiese.php?ctn_id=337 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)

México DF., octubre 25 de 2006. La homofobia, la ignorancia y las limitaciones presupuestales son los tres principales obstáculos que enfrenta la lucha contra el VIH/sida en México, afirmó Griselda Hernández Tepichín, directora de Atención Integral del Centro Nacional para la Prevención y Control del VIH/sida (Censida) en el Simposio Internacional sobre VIH/sida que inició hoy en el Instituto Nacional de Perinatología. <br><br>
?Homofobia porque nuestra epidemia está concentrada en hombres que tienen sexo con otros hombres (HSH). Las personas con prácticas homosexuales son las que tienen mayor temor a ser identificadas porque siguen sufriendo estigma y discriminación. Estar en la cultura de lo escondido y lo ilegal favorece el miedo de los HSH para acudir a los servicios de salud y recibir información?, indicó.
Homophobia, ignorance, and budget limits are the three principal obstacles faced by the fight against AIDS in Mexico, said Griselda Hernandez Tepichin, director of Integrated Services at the National Center for Prevention and Control for HIV/AIDS (Censida) at the International Symposium on HIV/AIDS that began today at the National Institute of Perinatology. <br><br>
?Homophobia because out epidemic is concentrated among men who have sex with other men (MSM). The people who practice homosexuality are those with the greatest fear of being identified because they suffer from stigmatization and discrimination. being in a culture immersed in hidden practices and illegality leads to a fear among MSM to receive information and seek out health services.

SOMALIA: Stigma, insecurity hold back HIV fight in Mogadishu- MOGADISHU, (PlusNews) 05/03/11: http://www.plusnews.org/PrintReport.aspx?ReportID=92630 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
MOGADISHU, 3 May 2011 (PlusNews) - Residents of Somalia's capital, Mogadishu, are understandably more concerned with dodging bullets than avoiding HIV, but this lack of knowledge means widespread ignorance about HIV prevention, while people who are HIV-positive are often ostracized by their communities. <br><br> According to Dahabo Abdi, a local journalist, the result is precious little HIV knowledge in the city. "The people of Mogadishu do not receive enough awareness, except sometimes radio stations speak about it," she said. <br><br>
"We are not like [the self-declared republic of] Somaliland, where I have seen in the media that the people are discussing HIV/AIDS in public," said Osman Libah, deputy health minister of Somalia's Transitional Federal Government.

SOUTH AFRICA: MSM left out of media, prevention programmes- Johannesburg, 11/26/10 (PlusNews): http://www.plusnews.org/Report.aspx?ReportID=91198 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
JOHANNESBURG, 26 November 2010 (PlusNews) - Men who have sex with men (MSM) do not make headlines in South African media and HIV experts have warned that a lack of accurate coverage prevents targeted HIV prevention and care for these men. <br><br> Reinforcing stereotypes that all MSM are gay ? or that they have the same HIV prevention needs as gay men ? may alienate this vulnerable group, which does not usually self-identify as being gay. It may also deter them from accessing target HIV services for fear of being labelled ?gay?, he added. <br><br>
"This is what media has to understand before they can actually put a story out there about homosexuality or MSM," he said.

"Huge" anti-gay campaign unfolding in Uganda - by Payul Canning, madikazemi.blogspot.com, on 04/12/11: http://madikazemi.blogspot.com/2011/04/huge-anti-gay-campaign-unfolding-in.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SaveMehdiKazemi+%28LGBT+asylum+news%29 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
"Despite reports that Uganda's 'kill the gays' bill has been stopped in the Ugandan Parliament following an announcement by President Yoweri Musevin's government, anti-gay forces have upped their efforts to have it become law. Leading anti-gay activist Martin Ssempa presented a petition said to be signed by two million people to the Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament 7 April. Ssempa leads an 'Inter-Religious Taskforce Against Homosexuality' and said that 'the Anti-Homosexuality Bill is being deliberately killed largely by the undemocratic threats of western nations." At the Parliament he presented 'former homosexuals', one of whom claimed he had been raped by the murdered gay activist David Kato. Another accused 19 human rights groups, including Amnesty International, of 'financing the recruitment of young Ugandans into homosexual lifestyles.' <br><br>
A day earlier student leaders from Uganda's leading Makerere University had claimed according to the Daily Monitor newspaper that 'recruitment of gays was rampant at the university campus.' They claimed that 'each of their colleagues who join homosexuals is paid a monthly salary of Shs800, 000' (£200)."

British gay man arrested and beaten in Saudi - by Dan Littauer, www.gaymiddleeast.com, on 04/01/11: http://gaymiddleeast.com/news/news%20282.htm (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
"According to The SUN, Stephen Comiskey, a 36-year-old nurse was arrested and beaten in Saudi Arabia by the Mutaween (religious police) after they sent him fake text messages masquerading as a friend and leading him into a trap. His passport was taken away from him and he was imprisoned for six months. Stephen told The SUN that he was forced to sign a confession in Arabic which he did not understand and was kept in jail without knowing what would be his fate, fearing the worse ? capital punishment." <br><br>
Homosexuality is illegal in Saudi Arabia and those found guilty may be subject to the death penalty, imprisonment and flogging under Shari?a law. The punishment for engaging in homosexual acts in Saudi Arabia is the death penalty for married persons, while unmarried persons would be subject to a minimum of 100 lashes plus and imprisonment. Under Shari?a law for there to be a conviction there must be four trustworthy male witnesses to the act, or the accused to confess four times, in order to obtain a conviction, making execution extremely rare. Saudi law is not strictly codified and its implementation, in either a lenient or severe manner, depends mostly on religious Sunni judges and scholars, as well as royal decrees (and thus subject to extreme variability). Conviction and severity of punishments depends on the social class, religion and citizenship of the accused, whereby non-western migrant workers receive usually harsher treatment than upper class Saudi citizens. <br><br>
Much more common is harassment by the hands of the religious police, the mutaween of the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. If the mutaween learn that a person is homosexual or engaging in homosexual activity they are likely to be subject to lifelong harassment (including sexual) and blackmail. This often leaves the person extremely vulnerable and subject to a life of fear, misery and in some cases leads to suicide. The
number of people falling victim to the mutaween is thought to be very significant but information, understandably, is very difficult to gather."

In Zimbabwe, more harassment of LGBT advocates - by www.madikazemi.blogspot.com on 04/09/11: http://madikazemi.blogspot.com/2011/04/in-zimbabwe-more-harassment-of-lgbt.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SaveMehdiKazemi+%28LGBT+asylum+news%29 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
"Last year Ellen Chademana and Ignatius Muhambi, gay rights activists working for Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ), were beaten and tortured in police custody for six days last May. Since then, Zimbabwe's judicial system has acquitted them on all charges.
GALZ released a statement 1 April reporting three new cases of harassment by the state of members. 23 March police stormed the house of a GALZ member and conducted a warrantless search. They took the names of the five men present at the house, then took them to a police station, abused and ridiculed them and charged them with Disorderly Conduct, for which they were fined US$10 with an extra charge of US$30 to 'entice the officer into receipting the fines.' <br><br>
25 March relatives of two women members took them to a police station on 'allegations of practising homosexuality.' They were separately interrogated and threatened with arrest if they denied the charges. Their mobile phones and people in the contacts list called about their relationship. Police verbally abused them and took photographs which they threatened to send to a local tabloid. Also on 25 March another two women members were threatened by a local ward councilor who alleged that they were lesbians. <br><br>

SOMALIA: Let's talk about HIV stigma - by IRIN News on 08/12/10: http://www.irinnews.org/report.aspx?ReportId=90143 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
"GAROWE, 12 August 2010 (PlusNews) - In conservative Somali culture, discussions about HIV are frowned upon, but four young people recently broke with tradition to speak to IRIN about their experience of living with the virus. <br><br>
He said his experience of discrimination began at the hospital, shortly after he tested positive. 'I was left out under a tree at the Garowe TB hospital [in the capital of Somali's northeastern self-declared autonomous region of Puntland]. Everybody was afraid of getting the disease if he or she touched me. The horror... was caused by doctors... because they are unskilled and they don't have knowledge of the disease [HIV].' <br><br>
A 2008 Knowledge Attitudes Behaviour and Practice survey, conducted by the Social Development and Research Association in Puntland's Mudug region, showed that 77 percent of respondents were against HIV-positive people teaching in schools while 85 percent reported their unwillingness to buy food from an HIV-positive food vendor; one in four considered people with HIV immoral."

Sri Lanka: Erasure of the Gays - by ILGA on 03/01/11: http://ilga.org/ilga/en/article/mT9aaKi18l (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
"Homosexuality, at least on paper, remains a crime in Sri Lanka. Nishada, an insider of the LGBT rights discourse claims that this is the greatest challenge that the gay community is facing today. He claims that every time he goes out with his boyfriend, they feel that they become the focus of the condemning 'gaze' of society. (I pointed out to him that straight couples are also not exempted from society's gaze. We are the victims of a sexually frigid society). Nishada tells me that gays are hardly ever harassed physically, although he claims that the Nacchi community, or men who think of themselves as women, are often subjected of harassment. Nacchi people he says is the 'face' of Sri Lankan LGBT community. 'They are great dancers; they get paid for dancing at weddings. Sometimes when they return from wedding ceremonies, the police would stop them and take their money,' Nishada says. The dress and behaviour of the Nacchi people, or the 'queens,' make them easily recognizable targets. As a socially marginalized group they are vulnerable and often sexually exploited, I gathered from Nishada."

OPINIÓN. Homofobia criminal sofoca más vidas en México / Opinion. Criminal homophobia estinguishes more lives in Mexico- by Antonio Medina Founder of Agencia NotieSe, www.notiese.org, on 05/06/11: http://www.notiese.org/notiese.php?ctn_id=4864 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
A casi un año de que el gobierno federal promulgara el 17 de mayo como Día de la Tolerancia y el Respeto a las Preferencias, los crímenes de odio por homofobia siguen tiñendo de rojo el arcoiris de la diversidad sexual en todo el país, pues, entre otras debilidades de dicha promulgación presidencial (que evitó mencionar la palabra homofobia en el título) no se plantearon acciones de gobierno (contundentes) para mitigar (realmente) la homofobia criminal en México. <br><br> Es importante señalar que en México, cada año, se asesinan en promedio a 35 personas del colectivo LGBTI. Entre 1995 y 2009 se han registrado más de 640 crímenes de odio por homofobia en México. Todos esos casos, como el de Quetzalcóatl y Bárbara, han sido difundidos en los medios de comunicación, pero, como lo ha constatado la Comisión Ciudadana contra Crímenes de Odio por Homofobia (CCCOH) por más de 13 años, de cada crimen registrado en los medios, cuando menos existen tres más de los cuales la sociedad no se entera, entre otras cosas, porque las familias de las víctimas prefieren el silencio antes que el escarnio y, como decía Carlos Monsiváis, ?una vez que la persona es asesinada, viene una segunda muerte social? cuando se difunde el suceso en los medios de comunicación de manera estigmatizante.
