Botswana Legabibo Part 1

Season 5 Episode 26

Tue, 2 Dec 2014 10:00pm

“In Botswana being gay is not a criminal offense, but the sexual practice, same sex sexual conduct is criminalised….but it’s not gay people who want their lives to be out in the open, it’s the law yanking their lives from the privacy of their home into the public platform because now the personal has become political”

“What does my body have to do with the rest of the country, what I do with my body should not be an issue of national debate “

We teamed up with LEGABIBO, Botswana’s primary LGBT rights organization and filmed an impactful conversation on the current stance of Gay rights in Botswana. They also disclose their own personal experiences of being gay in a society which has not only rejected homosexuality but that has also criminalised it.
