Building an equitable future

We promote visibility and empowerment of queer womxn through the power of community and innovation.

A Global Community

The strategy of every country, working with local civil societies as well as institutions and organizations, is to promote three key elements: Visibility, social change and the empowerment of queer womxn.


Still consider same-sex relationships as a crime

While in some parts of the world the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people are gaining recognition, in other parts of the world people are increasingly persecuted for their sexual orientation and gender identity.

We believe that persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics must end

Global Projects

Our objective is to promote and support the initiatives of each country that work to promote the cause of queer womxn. Hand in hand with civil societies, local and international institutions and organizations, each country’s strategy focuses on promoting three key elements: VISIBILITY, COMMUNITY ACTION, AND EMPOWERMENT.
