This report gives an overview of what it means to be gay and African in the early twenty-first century. It also highlights organisations working to improve the situation and the funders supporting such activities. This is not an academic report; rather, it provides information about the conditions facing LGBTI across the continent and shows that LGBTI people are often vulnerable pawns for those seeking power. However, the report also shows that there is a groundswell of gay people throughout Africa doing things for themselves.
