Covering Sexual and Gender Minorities & Religion in Sub-Saharan Africa - A Reporting Guide for Journalists

Author: 
Brian Pellot

This reporting guide is designed to help journalists report ethically and sensitively on issues related to sexual and gender minorities and religion in order to improve coverage of these issues in Sub-Saharan Africa. As explained in the guide: “In Sub-Saharan Africa, as in much of the world, reporting on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression (SOGIE) can be tricky. Cultural taboos, entrenched stereotypes, social hostilities, legal prohibitions and editorial censorship often distort coverage of these sensitive topics. Add religion to the mix and producing responsible journalism on sexual and gender minorities can seem impossible.”
