AFRICAN LGBTI ACTIVIST: Discrimination, physical violence and demonizing is a daily reality at Church/Home while living everyday LIFE in Rwanda!

Ms. Naomi Ruzandina, African Activist, Rwanda

My name is Naomi Ruzindana PanAfricanist, Rwandan female lesbian, founder and chair-person of Horizon Community Association (HOCA), an LGBTI organization in Rwanda. HOCA was the first organisation ever that opened a discussion about homosexuality and sexual orientation in Rwanda. I am very committed and involved in many LGBTI movements all over Africa.

I am on the executive board of Coalition of African Lesbian, executive board of Pan ILGA Africa. I am a human rights defender and committed to advancing the fundamental Human Rights for all LGBTI people in Rwanda without any kind of discrimination and empowering them for the role of being respected Rwandan citizen.

About Horizon Community Association

¨Horizon community Association is an organization that works towards a society that wants to be liberated from oppression, stigma, and hate crime in which all people should have equal rights, opportunities, peace, prosperity, and dignity and live in harmony.

Horizon community association is an LGBT group that is based in Rwanda. It is a community based organization that advocates for the rights of all LGBTI individuals within Rwanda. It was formed in in February, 2003.

Lesbians and gays in Rwanda face discrimination and hardship on a daily basis, which has a profound impact on their quality of life. Though homosexuality is not against the law in Rwanda, many individuals find themselves harassed, threatened, imprisoned or abused because of their sexual orientation. Discrimination, and even physical violence, is a daily reality for many of those who are open about their sexual orientation, and as a result, many gays and lesbians live a secretive life, unable to tell their families or friends about their sexual orientation. There is a lack of social services targeting the gay and lesbian community, as Rwandan society and the Rwandan government prefers to deny or ignore the existence of a gay and lesbian community.¨

Emmanuel Kolini the Anglican archbishop of Rwanda

ABUSER ALERT: Anglican Bishop Emmanuel Kolini ¨will not mingle with homosexuals¨ at Church.

¨REMERA - Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini has called on churches in the East African region to fight against homosexuality for the good of the society.

The leader of the Province of the Anglican Church of Rwanda insisted that Anglican churches in East Africa will not mingle with the homosexuals in the affairs of the church for the good of the community.¨
