FARUG seeks to address best practices and outcomes within the complex context of the LBQ movement in Uganda.

Violations and acts of discrimination against individuals on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in Uganda persist.

These violations range from forced evictions, expulsion and being forced out of schools, family rejection and disownment, physical and mental abuse, blackmail and extortion, detention and arbitrary arrests, forced migration, internal displacement, dismissal from work, misrepresentation in, by and through the media, outing/exposure of individuals by the media and increased state monitoring and surveillance.

FARUG endeavors to document cases of violence against LBQ womxn and to harness ground for research on policies, practices and laws that are discriminatory and continue to be used as tools to suppress and abuse the rights of LBQ womxn in Uganda.
