The Struggles of LGBT People Around the World – Photo 1 of 5
A growing number of national and regional governments have passed laws legalizing gay marriage and unions between people of the same sex. Other countries have tightened legislation that prohibits anti-gay discrimination and hate speech targeted at people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). But while LGBT rights may be generally improving around the world, many more people live in countries where homosexual acts or identifying as gay can lead to state-ordered physical punishment.
This week, TIME International publishes Robin Hammond’s photographs of survivors of these discriminations – from Uganda to Russia, Malaysia and Cameroon among many other countries (follow Robin on Instagram @Hammond_Robin and @WhereLoveIsIllegal). Pictured here, Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera, 34, who is from Uganda. “We have a very long way to go in this struggle but I am glad that we are not just sitting back," says Nabagesera, one of the early pioneers of the gay-rights struggle in Uganda. In 2003, she founded Freedom and Roam Uganda, a gay-rights advocacy group; last December she published and distributed Bombastic, a free magazine focused on the personal stories of Uganda's gay men and women.

asilikeit That's the child in me sitting there, cherishing the tranquility of the Ganges, the warm embrace of the cold water, soaking the sun, etching a memory, connecting with the nature, offering prayers to the superpower, refusing to go, not wanting to come back. 3mon
