    The ILGA Report on State-Sponsored Homophobia is a comprehensive outline of the legal status of same-sex sexual activity. However, it is very important to keep in mind that the question of legality of same-sex sexual activity does not determine the question whether people may be at risk of being persecuted in their countries of origin for engaging in such activity. Knowing that there is a difference between these two questions is vital for legal practitioners, policy makers and adjudicators in the refugee context.
