LGBT+ Rights Are Human Rights 

ACTSA has, since its foundation, had a fundamental commitment to human rights and a recognition that those who are marginalised and vulnerable are most at risk of having these rights denied to them. LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other gender and sexual minorities) people in Southern Africa are especially vulnerable.In the majority of countries in Southern Africa homosexuality is not only socially rejected but is actually illegal, by penal code or common law. While there has been some progress, for example, in the last two years homosexuality has been decriminalised in both Mozambique and the Seychelles, challenges remain.

All people should live free from fear, want and discrimination. Please donate now and help us to support the LGBT+ communities in Southern Africa to make this a reality.  

Thank you.
