Gay and Bisexual Men Face Abuse, Prison in Uzbekistan

Read more:

(Berlin) – Men in Uzbekistan who engage in consensual same-sex sexual conduct face arbitrary detention, prosecution, and imprisonment as well as homophobia, threats, and extortion, Human Rights Watch said today. Uzbekistan should guarantee rights to personal security, privacy, and nondiscrimination by decriminalizing consensual sexual conduct between men.

Uzbekistan, a current member of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council, has undertaken key human rights reforms since President Shavkat Mirziyoyev came to power in 2016, but the criminalization of same-sex sexual conduct remains a significant stain on Tashkent’s record. Article 120 of the current criminal code punishes consensual sexual conduct between men with up to three years in prison.

    There’s no electricity and gas in remote villages. People live in hard condition especially in winter. HUMAN RIGHTS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM. PLEASE POST VIDEOS ABOUT THE LIFE OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING IN VILLAGES IN UZBEKISTAN.

    1. Гачислав говорит

      But this is not human rights problem
      Electricity is more of a social economy problem

    Все просто
    При отмене уголовное ответственности за лгбт движуху мы автоматически посрёмся со многими арабскими странами. Что очевидно не выгодно
    П.С. мораль не снимайте себя и своего партнера на видео. Кто так делает сам виноват во всем что с ним произошло

    I live in Uzbekistan. HBW do not even try to suggest such kind of thing to our government. Because In Uzbekistan people do not tolerate this dirt.

    Homophobic attitudes are not uncommon in Italy either, because of many different reasons. The social service in Maniago (poastal code for Italy 33085) would be quite an example of public officer’s abuses against gay or other because of their sexual choices or orientation. The social service in Maniago is really badly run also by elderly women with a strong catholic background and facist parenthood. Some younger social assistance staff might still have a strong yet subdued or hidden despise against gay people, which they learned in the “caserma” system of the compulsory military service of the ’90s, when psychological tortures against single men of possible gay orientation were not rare. At the SSB Maniago psychological torture against young homosex or lesbians either sick or health is probably still a reality.
    Some of the social assistance staff and some of the hospital staff in the nearby interconnected ramshackle hospital might still be very dangerous and along with nuns of the convent in nearby Poffabro (poastal code 33080) might still like it very much to persecute and torture just some chosen people of “bad condition”. Nuns in Poffabro would have unauthorized access to hospital and other endroits for “benedictions” and with privilege option, thanks to mrs. Buset’s organizational prerogatives…
    Psychological torture might turn into phisical ailment.
