Learn more about our essential services for LGBTI people:
- Health and Support Services
- We were the first organization to provide HIV and general health services targeted at LGBTI people, supported by the South African Department of Health; we train nurses and doctors to provide better services to LGBTI people;
- We provide counseling and support services for survivors of violence, LGBTI people living with HIV, for LGBTI parents and parents of LGBTI children, and for transgender and gender non-conforming people; supported by the Department of Social Development;
- Our helpline 021 712 6699, operating 7 days a week, offers immediate emergency access to LGBTI-friendly counseling.
- Community Engagement and Empowerment
- We organize safe spaces for LGBTI people all over the province of the Western Cape – especially in townships and in rural towns where LGBTI people are at increased risk for violence, and have little opportunities to meet other LGBTI people.
- To date, over 15 Safe Spaces exist, many of whom are important hubs of activity and community for LGBTI people

- Research and Advocacy
- We monitor LGBTI-related court cases, and offer support to victims and their families. Cases of sexual assault and murder of lesbian women have increased dramatically. For example, our expert evidence and on-going activism was instrumental in the first conviction of a sexual orientation-related murder.
- We work with the South African Department of Justice to establish hate crime legislation, and relentlessly support LGBTI communities in on-going court cases to Sharon’s piece about David’s case>.
- We publish research and policy briefs to improve health services to LGBTI people .
