Both in Africa and Europe we see continued challenges to achieving equality between citizens of all sexual orientations and gender identities. There are legal and administrative obstacles to equal rights, but also hate campaigns and even physical attacks against LGBTIQ people. LGBTIQ-phobic agendas are pushed by conservative groups with networks across both continents and beyond, especially the US. The threats to equality across Africa and Europe can thus not be seen in isolation but require a comprehensive analysis and a common set of actions.
