Solidarity With Burundi’s LGBT+ Community

In 2009 same-sex relations were officially declared a crime punishable by prison in Burundi. This changed the lives of the Burundian LGBT+ community forever. 

Since then, many government officials have publicly expressed their hatred towards the LGBT+ community, which has exacerbated the discrimination, violence and stigmatization that LGBT+ people face. 

This coupled with a largely homophobic society has led LGBT+ Burundians to live in constant fear. 

Watch the stories of three LGBT+ Burundians as they paint a picture of what it’s like to live as an LGBT+ person in their country.
