Quaker conference examines lives of LGBTI community in Zimbabwe

The FGC (Friends General Conference) discussed issues of LGBTI community in Zimbabwe in their Yearly Meeting in mid-2015. The FGC is the more liberal, and unprogrammed branch of Quakerism in the USA.

Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) is an organization which strives for the attainment of full and equal human, social and economic rights in all aspects of life for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex (LGBTI) persons. Stan Kahonde, a 28-year-old human rights activist from Harare, Zimbabwe, attended this year’s gathering. He works for Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum, a coalition of 21 human rights organizations, and sits on the board of Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe.

Paul Ricketts interviewed Kahonde about the status of LGBTI people in Zimbabwe. Read the whole article on the Frost Illustrated website.
