In commemoration of International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (17 May), Lesbians, Gays and Bisexuals of Botswana (LEGABIBO), the Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC), the UNDP and Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa is launching a booklet entitled: “The law needs to change, we want to be free” – The impact of laws criminalising same-sex relationships in Botswana.

This research report seeks to identify the impact of criminalisation of same-sex sexual acts on the lives of LGBT persons in Botswana and make evidence-based recommendations for law review, based on its findings.
