This policy brief is part of a Gender Links series on controversial issues that intersect with its work. LGBTIAQ equality is connected to many other rights including gender equality.

The fight to advance the rights of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Intersex, Asexual and Queer (LGBTIAQ) people has seen some progress in recent years, including in Southern Africa. However, LGBTIAQ people face great hostility toward their on-going fight for equality. While some countries, like South Africa, have seen great advances in LGBTIAQ rights, others have backtracked in recent years, with lawmakers in countries like Uganda and Russia effecting legislation to criminalise homosexuality.

On 11 December 2013, India’s Supreme Court struck down a 2009 ruling, which legalised homosexuality. Two days later, the DRC’s National Assembly proposed a draft bill criminalising same-sex activity in the country.
