Litigating for rights of sexual minorities and sex workers

December 13, 2011

SALC’s HIV Programme Manager, Priti Patel, attended a conference hosted by the Open Society Foundations bringing together lawyers from all over the world who litigate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) persons, sex workers, and injecting drug users. The meeting brought together lawyers from southern and eastern Africa, Eastern Europe, Canada, Australia, and Denmark. Check out the work of some of the amazing lawyers who are working with sex workers in Canada to strengthen their rights; supporting the rights of LGBT persons in eastern Africa; and fighting for injecting drug users in Denmark.
