In April Ebou Sohna reported that 17 GLBTI Gambians had been imprisoned for the "crime" of homosexuality. Subsequently the Gambia Secular Assembly (an AAI Member) wrote an open letter to the Gambian government explaining that homosexuality is a natural part of human diversity and calling for the equality of all citizens. The letter was published as a series in The Standard newspaper in Gambia and you can see a scan here.
Atheist Alliance International applauds the Gambia Secular Assembly for taking a stand on behalf of GLBTI people in Gambia.
