Being Queer in Madagascar, One of the World’s Most Underreported Countries

05/31/2018 | Dazed

Being gay in Madagascar doesn’t echo the loud and proud essence of queer communities in the west. Oppressed by the weight of far-right wing politics, societal discrimination, and a lack of international media coverage, many queer Malagasies live in silence, only able to truly live out their identity in the incubation of LGBT safe spaces. Alongside this, unlike other Eastern-African countries who have found their voice in the international media-scape, queer life in Madagascar remains largely underreported: something that sets off a domino effect for LGBT awareness and acceptance across the state.
