The report was published by NAOME-RUZINDANA (founder of the LGBT NGO Hoca).The Research was carried out in Gasabo district of the Central province of Rwanda. The Focus was on Lived Realities of Open Lesbians living in Kigali and was therefore limited to only Kigali by Horizon Community Association because it was an initiative to recognize the Problems faced by Lesbians after the several attacks, arrests and arbitrary that has been in Rwanda since 2004.The study also focused on the specific activities of Hoca and how it has improved the livelihood of its members in Gasabo.The study again highlighted the background of Rwanda as a nation and her culture, and they perceive homosexuality right from the past Generation to date.
