ADVOCACY

We collaborate with other activists and organizations on LGBT rights advocacy at national, regional and international human rights forums like the African Commission on Human and People’s Right (ACHPR), and the UN. We co-hosted a regional Human Rights Training Workshop in partnership with UHAI EASHRI and PAN African ILGA in 2015.

Human Rights Education

We provide human rights education to LBQ women in Nigeria whose rights are often violated because they are women and also due to their sexual orientation and gender identity/expression. We are able to achieve this through our well trained and well-networked Paralegals and Peer Educators residing in the different geopolitical zones of Nigeria.

Community Paralegal Services

At WHER we provide community paralegal services in which trained paralegals provide first aid legal support to LBQ women in Nigeria and our Gay brothers in Abuja who experience violations and discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender expression/ identity. Our paralegal hotline is available 24 hours daily.
