This is a wonderful new resource, which may be of interest to readers:lgtbi
Human Rights, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in the Commonwealth: Struggles for Decriminalisation and Change, co-edited by Corinne Lennox (School of Advanced Study, University of London) and Matthew Waites (University of Glasgow).  Published by School of Advanced Study, University of London.
The book is available on the School of Advanced Study website, where it can be read online, downloaded or purchased in print.
The book was launched in Toronto, Canada on 26 June during Pride week at the event ‘Sexuality, Repression and the Law’, in partnership with the unique global project ‘Envisioning Global LGBT Human Rights’ based at York University. Videos of the launch including chapter authors such as Monica Tabengwa from Botswana, and a film on Botswana from the Envisioning project, can be viewed online and perhaps used in sociological teaching and activism:
