In 2015, GR&AP published an extensive report, Namibian Law on LGBT Issues, which examines topics such as criminal laws relevant to the LGBT community, protection against violence and hate speech, labour law issues and access to health car and family law issues. It also looks at the possibility of legal challenges to discrimination against members of the LGBT community.
For shorter summaries of some of the issues covered in the report, see our series of pamphlets in English, Oshiwambo and Damara/Nama.
