<p># who are we galck+ is an entity built on acceptance, inclusion and empowerment. This simply means that we're here for it, all of it - fighting different causes for different individuals with the goal of freedom, equality, justice and better realities for everyone.</p>
<p>LGBTQ+ persons in Kenya and across the world have often been on the receiving end of violence. They suffer stigma, discrimination, physical and verbal abuse, assault, harassment, eviction from their home, loss of job, suspension or expulsion from school etc. Though it is often said that one’s sexual orientation, gender identity or expression (SOGIE) is a non-issue, the violence meted upon said person is undeniably a big issue as it affects their quality of health and life.</p>
<p># the state and religion Violence is further perpetrated against LGBTQ+ persons given the existence of laws that criminalize sex between two consenting same sex adults. These laws create a misguided perception in society that LGBTQ+ individuals are criminal; a perception that subsets of the state and religious institutions advance to further perpetuate human rights violations and acts of violence.</p>

Our mission

To strengthen the coalition’s capacity to provide comprehensive, rights-based services to galck+ member groups through capacity building, positive visibility and stigma reduction.

our vision

A safe and enabling environment for SOGIE organisations and individuals in Kenya.
