Ghost Empire is a film project series, funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, which explores the legacy of British colonialism on LGBTI rights around the world. Currently half of the countries which criminalize homosexuality use British colonial laws or revised versions of these laws which means that British colonial laws are responsible for criminalizing LGBTI people in over 40 countries.
