Coconuts Yangon Lgbt+

Yangon has no shortage of pride. Fab Nights are some of the biggest events on the social calendar, and the &PROUD Film Festival is always well-attended. There are still problems, though. LGBT+ folks face discrimination, especially from police who have targeted them under the so-called ‘darkness law’, an archaic rule used against those ‘acting suspiciously’ or being in a ‘suspicious place’. The media have documented cases of transgender people being accused of sex work and targeted for harassment and bribes. We cover these issues widely on Coconuts Yangon. We aim to give a voice to vulnerable members of the community and to celebrate advances on the course to freedom.
