Help LGBTIQ communities transcend inequity.

Join the Partners in Pride movement.

Leaders of LGBTIQ organizations that we partner with in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, and Democratic Republic of the Congo work and live in environments characterized by violent homophobia, legally entrenched discrimination, and political and social persecution. These human rights defenders put their safety on the line every day to lead organizations that stand up for the human rights and health of LGBTIQ communities. Far too often, they are doing it alone.

“I dream of a future where no one is bullied for who they are, where we can all sit down at the table together as partners.”
– Lusungu

Colonial legacies of discrimination mean transwomen are particularly vulnerable and are 34 times more likely to acquire HIV than other key at risk populations. This is why grassroots organizations are working to uproot inequity and provide lifesaving services for transwomen and other LGBTIQ individuals. You can empower these dedicated and capable leaders through your gift to the Stephen Lewis Foundation today.

“I want my trans peers to be able to live their lives to the fullest, with pride in who they are. That’s why your support of the SLF is so urgently needed today.”
– Bronnie Ivy
