Dear friends all over the world here in Tanzania life is becoming more difficult for LGBTI community.
There is an increase of stigma and discrimination especially to Gays/ MSM. We Gay people now hide our identity due to fear of stigma and rejection.
Religiuos leaders are fueling the stigma and rejection they are actually making things worse. It is evidend that Gays are being mocked when they pass around, are not need in the neibourhood and are not welcome in any religious house.
Our efforts to fight stigma are being tramatized by the laws and poliecies that criminalize LGBTI people.
All HIV/AIDS interventions discrimiante LGBTI comunity, no one is ready to support prevention initiatives among LGBT comunity. Yesterday I was talking to an officer who is incharge oh HIV at CONCERN and She said they can not give their funds to people who do not know God.
It is sad,
