Pride - It's worth fighting for
 

The ongoing impact of COVID-19 globally means that, this year, most in-person Pride festivals are cancelled. But it’s also worth remembering, that for millions of LGBT+ people around the world – stigma, discrimination and criminalisation make participating in Pride events impossible every year.

 

But this doesn’t mean that LGBT+ people are any less proud of who they are. In that sense, Pride is never cancelled...

It’s National Coming Out Day!

Zoey Black, our Legal and Education Advocacy Officer, sat down with a few of her friends and documented their thoughts on queer identity and their stories and experience around coming out. 

 

This very raw short film gives an intimate perspective into the conversations and experiences of gay, bisexual, lesbian, trans and non-binary persons in Cape Town, South Africa.

Happy National Coming Out Day!
