This is the first in a two part series in which we consider the health impact of criminalization of same-sex partnerships in Sub-Saharan Africa. The recent murder of an LGBTQ activist David Kato in Uganda, and the discussion by the Ugandan Parliament of an Anti-Homosexuality Bill, has focused the world’s attention on this highly vulnerable group. Today on the HJRC we air an interview conducted by Sasha Dyck from HealthonEarth with Dr Marc Epprecht, Graduate Chair of Global Development Studies and professor of History at Queen’s University. Dr Epprecht discusses his studies of the history of homosexuality in Africa, and the different tactics that he sees rights groups using – including the use of HIV/AIDS public health messages – to promote greater acceptance of diverse sexual identities.
