This literature review focuses on the state of LGBTI human rights in 10 Southern African countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It takes its point of departure in a position rooted in upholding human rights, equality, and freedom – particularly in support for the rights of LGBTI people and communities. Its intention is to analyze the current science through a fame which combines these principles, with respect and admiration for the strength and resilience of many Southern African people facing a daily struggle.
