The Fruit of Service is Peace
Women in Nigeria are disproportionately affected by poverty, HIV/AIDS, gender based violence, sexual and reproductive rights abuse and limited access to information and basic health and legal services. Nigeria’s 80.2 million women and girls lack equality of opportunity and therefore have signiﬁcantly worse life chances than men/boys.
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.
Health & Well-being
The World Health Organization defines health in its 1948 constitution as a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Research & Documentation
The violations faced by LBQ women in Nigeria are not adequately documented and little is being done in documenting and examining the lived experiences and health/well-being of LBQ women in Nigeria.
Lesbiblioteque – E-library (Books)
We provide an opportunity for LBSMW in Nigeria and diaspora to gain access to information materials such as article, e-books, video files.
