Know that what you're doing is against the rights of humanity! This website and whoever is behind this site is absolutely shameless to support and protect crimes like homosexuality.

Educate yourselves and identify your sickness, look for a cure and live your lives like normal people. Don't you feel disgusted acting like animals? Stupid people like yourselves are making fool out of your religions and societies.

Homosexuality should definitely be banned and strict measures should be taken to stop the spreading of this disease, polluting the coming generation.

Useless idiots! Your hands are full of innocent blood!

Hi. Am going to use the name *ANNA* am 30 years old woman, working and living the life am expected to live by society.Am i lesbian woman who is married in order not to bring, what my father calls shame to the family. i even have a child.

My country bans and makes it unlawful to be gay and it saddens me that am in the legal sector and i watch as this law that affects me operate.

I live in a closet, afraid of each day that someone somewhere will report me and if am caught. I have refrained from having any relations with other women for fear of what repercussion maybe involved.

Am thinking of living my marriage and relocating because i do not want to live this fake life anymore, my husband has no clue as to my sexual orientation and my father made me swear never to ever reveal it. My mother pretends like she does not know yet she does.

i live a life of solitude, praying each day that my day will come when i will live free to love who i want and how i want. I teach my child every day not to judge people yet i live a lie.

My life,my story, my everyday routine.

Its better you try to get help from some LGBT communities in Tanzania.I understand the situation you are going through its unfair for you to work and then pay someone how is taking advantage because of you being a homosexual and i know our situation in Africa concerning with homosexuality.Let us come out and condemne such acts.We should request to decriminilse homosexuality in East Africa like in Rwanda

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.
WEZESHA work to promote and protect the rigbhts of LGBT in Tanzania
