LGBT rights in Tanzania

Homosexuality in Tanzania is a socially taboo topic, and same-sex sexual acts are crimes punishable by the state.

According to the 2007 Pew Global Attitudes Project, 95 percent of Tanzanian residents believe that homosexuality is a way of life that society should not accept, which was the seventh-highest rate of non-acceptance in the 45 countries surveyed.
