Namibia has had a troubled history in regards to the protection of the rights and civil liberties of LGBT citizens. Sodomy is illegal in Namibia, and is punishable with prison time. Furthermore, statements by government leaders, such as Sam Nujoma and Jerry Ekandjo concerning gays and lesbians have drawn both domestic and international condemnation.
However, pro-gay rights groups, such as Sister Namibia and Rainbow Project, operate freely in Namibia's major cities, even though they have been frequented by anti-gay attacks since independence in 1990. There is no information on the history of the LGBT citizenry prior to 1990.
