Please don't criminalilze Tanzanian citizens simply because of who they love.

LGBT people who make the decision to declare their sexual orientation face prejudice and discrimination from their family, friends, and also from wider society. The homophobia is already continuously causing extreme harm and disruption to people's lives, many LGBT people have become homeless as a result of being rejected by their families after revealing their sexual orientation. In Dar es Salaam, Arusha, Zanzibar and Mwanza between 20 and 40 percent of young people who live in ghettos are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

Every LGBT should have access to quality health services, quality education, equal employment, equality before the law, freedom of speech  and respect.
