Amnesty International USA is deeply concerned about the violence facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in South Africa. In 2012 alone, at least seven LGBTI individuals were murdered in four different provinces. These are not merely numbers however - behind the statistics are faces and stories of individual South Africans, like Noxolo.

Demand Justice for Noxolo!
In 2011, 24 year-old Noxolo Nogwaza was murdered in South Africa while on her way home from a night out with friends. Her attacker(s) raped, repeatedly beat and stabbed her, apparently because of her sexual orientation, before dumping her body in a drainage ditch. LGBTI individuals in South Africa face staggering levels of homophobia. Taunts and insults are common, as are hate crimes like sexual assault and other physical attacks – particularly in rural areas. The authorities’ inaction, in turn, leads to a greater sense of fear and insecurity for LGBTI individuals.

Demand justice for Noxolo Nogwaza and help bring an end to the climate of fear for the LGBT community in South Africa!
