Laws on homosexuality in African nations

While LGBT citizens of the United States continue to face legal and cultural discrimination, it’s important to remember that many parts of the world still operate with barbaric attitudes toward queer individuals.

President Barack Obama bravely spoke about equal rights on his recent trip to Kenya, despite ugly protest from some within the country.

Over 75 countries continue to criminalize homosexuality. But even worse, at least six parts of the world still prescribe death for non-heterosexual citizens.

These are some of the places where being gay or bisexual can result in state death.
