  • Law like Love - A queer perspective of law in India (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
    Summary <br><br> With the landmark Delhi High Court victory in July 2009, sexuality and the law entered mainstream, legal and public discourse in India inviting both celebration and resistance. How do we understand this conversation? The July judgement stands on the shoulders of a much longer history, argue the writers in this contemporary and critical volume on queering the law. A longer history that shapes, unsettles and challenges both legal and queer histories and begins new conversations on the intersections between bodies, politics, activism, sexuality, identity and law. Some playful, some critical and others reflective and irreverent, this unique collection of pieces brings the life, structures and institutions of law alive and shine with relevance in the contemporary moment.  Added: May 19 2011

  • Introduction to 'African Sexualities: A Reader' Sylvia Tamale 05/11/11 (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
    ?African Sexualities? is a groundbreaking new volume, forthcoming from Pambazuka Press. As well as using popular culture to help address the ?what, why, how, when and where? questions, the book?s contributors provide a critical mapping of African sexualities that informs readers about the plurality and complexities of sexualities on the continent ? desires, practices, fantasies, identities, taboos, abuses, violations, stigmas, transgressions and sanctions. At the same time, the contributors pose gender-sensitive and politically aware questions that challenge the reader to interrogate assumptions and hegemonic sexuality discourses, thereby unmapping the intricate and complex terrain of African sexualities. <br><br> The following article by ?African Sexualities? editor Sylvia Tamale comprises the book?s introduction.  Added: May 13 2011
  • Human Rights World Report 2011 [sexual orientation/HIV] (Sexual Minorities & HIV Status)
    Kenya continues to punish consensual adult sexual conduct with up to 14 years imprisonment. On February 11, following unsubstantiated rumors of a "gay wedding" in the coastal town of Mtwapa, influential Muslim and Christian religious leaders demanded the closure of the Mtwapa office of the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI), which conducts research on HIV/AIDS with men who have sex with men. The religious leaders issued a statement promising to "flush out gays" in Mtwapa. On February 12, a group of over 200 individuals-armed with sticks, stones, and other makeshift weapons-surrounded KEMRI. Smaller mobs went to the homes of people suspected of being gay. The police attempted to protect the individuals targeted by the mob by taking them into custody. Another mob severely beat up a KEMRI volunteer on February 13. Two individuals were beaten up in Mombasa on suspicion of being gay, on February 13 and 16 respectively. In Mtwapa, Mombasa, and elsewhere, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people went into hiding in fear for their lives, and HIV/AIDS outreach, testing, and treatment among men who have sex with men remains compromised by the attacks and the continuing climate of homophobia.  Added: Feb 27 2011

    "Furthermore, it was reported that those accused of homosexual acts were routinely flogged and threatened with execution." <br><br> in May 2007, police raided a private party in Esfahan, arresting 87 persons, including 4 women and at least 8 people whom they accused of wearing the clothing of the opposite sex. It was reported that police stripped many of them to the waist in the street and beat them until their backs or faces were bloody. Twenty-four of those arrested were tried for ?facilitating immorality and sexual misconduct?, as well as possession and consumption of alcohol. In June 2007 a court in Esfahan found all of them guilty of various combinations of those charges. Most were sentenced to up to 80 lashes and fines of 10 million to 50 million riyals ($1,000-$5,000).  Added: Oct 18 2010
