          Abstract

          O presente trabalho pretende tecer algumas considerações sobre o ativismo LGBT em contexto de grande hostilidade política e social. Em alguns países africanos, em especial o Uganda e o Quénia, têm surgido alguns movimentos de homofobia que tem o apoio do Estado. Essa homofobia traduz-se, em outros, em violência para com as pessoas que se identificam enquanto gays, lésbicas, ou outras, ou que são percecionadas enquanto tal. Pretende-se assim tomar o pulso aos movimentos LGBT que subsistem, quase em regime de clandestinidade, mas que são pontos de resistência contra a homofobia da sociedade e do Estado.

          Translated abstract

          This work intends to make a few remarks about LGBT activism in the context of great political and social hostility. In some African countries, especially Uganda and Kenya, there have been some homophobia movements that have state support. That homophobia is reflected in others, violence toward people who identify as lesbian, gay, or other, or are perceived as such. The aim is to take the pulse to LGBT movements remain, almost underground system but are resistance points against homophobia in society and the state.
