title[edit]

The article seems to actually be very specifically about gay rights (the former location), mainly focusing on anti-homosexuality laws, not about LGBT rights more broadly—there is not a single mention of transgender issues in this article. The acronym is also not used by Zimbabwean rights organizations; as the article notes, the main local organization is named Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe. --Delirium (talk) 08:20, 7 April 2008 (UTC)

In the article, it is stated that: " In 2001 Tatchell again tried to arrest the president in Brussels but was beaten unconscious by Mugabe's security guards.[12] "

However, this is what the article referenced actually says:

" He also said he was feeling "very, very, very sore" after the incident on Monday, but his pain "was of no real consequence compared to the far, far greater brutality that is meted out to the people of Zimbabwe by the Mugabe regime". "

No mention of Peter Thatchell being 'beaten unconscious' by security personnel. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MrSativa (talkcontribs) 21:55, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
