Day of action in Burkina Faso


The Queer African Youth Networking Center (QAYN)  organised a day of action, reflection and community building on May 18th, in line with international celebrations.
Activities  included a community meeting, a creative photo shoot to feed into the ‘Global Rainbow Flashmob’ and a workshop to produce  T-shirts with the motto ‘Accept me as I am’
The organisation made public the study it carried out amongst 273 students of Ouagadougou’s 8 universities. Under the title ‘What do you think about Homosexuality’, the study reveals that 50% of men and 42% of women declare not being familiar with the terms. Still, they are respectively 64% and 62% to think it should be opposed.
These figures, the first of their kind in the country, will be essential to support activist’s advocacy strategies
