Raise your voice against new homophobic bill in Malawi
Malawi has passed a very recent bill criminalising sexual intercourse between consenting women, and thus added to complete oppression of its LGBTIA citizens. Stand with us and have something to say about it!
President Bingu Wa Mutharika, we call upon you to answer for your infringements upon the safety, security and freedom of your citizens. Hate crimes against LGBTIA people clearly do not constitute a matter that is of importance to you – a very worrying attitude for Us to accept quietly. Surely you cannot stand by and admire other countries in Africa like Uganda, where LGBTIA individuals have been forced to go into hiding? Remember Us.
