This report seeks to inform international agencies, governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as they work to improve the protection of sexually and gender non-conforming (SGN16) refugees in Uganda. The report is based on extensive field and desk research conducted over the course of a year. We interviewed thirty-seven SGN refugees and stakeholders working with them, including representatives of refugee-serving NGOs, LGBTI organizations, and UNHCR field officers. Our findings reveal serious and dangerous gaps in their protection.
