Fear for Life: Violence against Gay Men and Men Perceived as Gay in Senegal (Human Rights Watch Report)

Published: November 30, 2010

This 95-page report includes interviews with dozens of people who have faced threats and violence at the hands of both the police and others in the community. It looks in detail at two key incidents: the "gay marriage" scandal of February 2008; and the arrest of the "nine homosexuals of Mbao" in December 2008. The report also examines several other cases that show how police arrests under Article 319.3 fan broader fear and suspicion.
