Marisa Schwartz on Time.com : "How 2 Gay Men Live in a Country Where Homosexuality is Illegal"

Marisa Schwartz who was recently featured on Lintroller for her work with Loud Silence Media in Ghana has recently published a video of her journalism work on Time.com –

“Some 37 African countries criminalize homosexual relationships, with penalties ranging from misdemeanors to death sentences, according to a Human Rights Campaign Foundation and Human Rights First report released Tuesday. The report, which analyzed LGBT rights in 54 African countries in total, paints a picture of a continent in crisis.

In Ghana, a country often regarded as among the most progressively democratic nations in Africa, homosexuality remains illegal, punishable by up to three years imprisonment. A recent Pew survey of various countries, not all African, reveals that 98 percent of Ghanaians feel that homosexuality is “morally unacceptable,” the highest percentage of any country surveyed.”
