In Tanzania being LGBT is an offence that one can face up to 35rs in prison, though no one have been jailed so far but the life is not that good.
religious houses and leaders are againist LGBT, this makes the whole community go againist us.
We are not accepted, not recognized, stigmatized and discriminated. We really have no support from NGOs both local and international, not even human rights activists.
We are crying for help from our fellow friend worldwide join us we want our rights in Tanzania.

In Burundi gays and lesbians must hide themselfves because the law and tthe sociaety do not protect them. They 've lost their jobs, live miserablely and are constantly persecuted by the police and the catholic clergy.
