Careless public statements based on ignorance made in Zambia for political gain, result in violent persecution of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex or LGBTI community, according to a Zambian activist.

Chalwe Mwansa says that dialogue and understanding are  very important in addressing the issue of homophobia not only in Zambia but around the world.

Stephanie Castro asked Mr Mwansa about the challenges the LGBTI community faces in Zambia.
