samenvatting: Over the past decade, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Ugandans have sought safety and asylum in various countries, but never in such numbers or with such a high degree of visibility as following the passage of the Anti-Homosexuality Act in December 2013. When reports of LGBT Ugandans seeking refuge in Kenya began to surface in the months following, many international donors and LGBT activists in the region felt at a loss for how to respond. Stories of LGBT Ugandans in the Kakuma refugee camp and Nairobi highlighted difficult living conditions, harassment, arrests and violence. Refugee service providers, including the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), struggled to respond to the unexpected influx, one that coincided with a government crackdown on refugees in Kenya. It seemed that the Ugandans had left one hostile and insecure environment for another, yet the numbers continued to grow. Instead of slowing, following the Anti-Homosexuality Act?s nullification in August 2014, the stream of asylum seekers from Uganda continued and even increased. Donors and activists alike felt that they lacked the full picture of what was occurring, why, and what the range of possible and appropriate interventions could be. This research sought to gain a greater understanding of the LGBT Ugandans who fled their country following the bill?s passage, to determine (to the extent possible) their numbers and characteristics, and to capture some of their experiences of asylum seeking. It examines the constellation and interaction of push and pull factors underlying this unprecedented outflow. It also looks at the impacts of this migration on service providers, pre-existing refugee communities, LGBTled organizations and the LGBT rights movements in Uganda and Kenya.
