Ce rapport constitue une mise à jour du COI Focus portant le même titre, daté du 10 mai 2017. La présente recherche s’intéresse à la situation spécifique des homosexuels au Burkina Faso et se limite dès lors à l’orientation sexuelle. Le terme « homosexuel » désigne tant les hommes que les femmes mais lorsqu’il s’agira d’insister sur la dimension spécifique de l’expérience des uns ou des autres, le Cedoca utilisera alors les termes « gay » et « lesbienne ».
