Authors Navin Vasudev and Neal McKenna, March 12 2014: Homosexuality is a criminal offence in most African countries where rights-based organisations such as Oxfam, ActionAid and CARE operate. In these countries, the consequences for being a sexual minority (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, intersex - LGBTI) range from ridicule and blackmail to jail time without legal recourse, rape, torture and death. Methods of killing run the gamut from beating, stoning and hanging to crushing, decapitation and immolation - being burned alive.
