Advocacy

By involving local and religious leaders, politicians and creating partnerships with strong nationwide organizations and Ministries, we create awareness about the existence of LGBT people in a homophobic society, sensitize about tolerance for each other for the greater good of Uganda, push for policy change and change of attitude. This has been fruitful in recruiting several law makers and public figures in voicing out the injustices subjected to LGBT and MSM in Uganda.
