The Directed Research Project I have embarked on addresses the issue of the rights of the marginaUzed in society. I have particularly focused on ^ how the gay and lesbian persons have continued to be marginalized in society in which they live. In trying to realize the aforementioned, the paper looks^the evolution of the concept of gay and lesbian rights and these rights have been recognized in other jurisdictions. Of great concern in this paper is the controversy of the Zambian Sodomy laws which do not conform to international set standards for the protection of gay and lesbian persons under the concept of human rights Finally, the paper looks at how the Zambian law can be reconciled in order to meet the international standards.
