LGBT Voice in partnership with Alliance for GLobal Justice is organizing a 100 km bicycle ride to raise fund focused exclusively on supporting national LGBT activism to advance social justice movements and agendas. And also to bring new resources and new opportunities to our community by supporting local activists.
This support is key to long-term expansion, rejuvenation and sustainability of LGBTQ's movements and organizations that work on behalf of the over 2 million LGBT individuals in Tanzania.
Members of the Tanzanian LGBT community face many challenges to leading safe, happy, and fulfilling lives. We face arrest, imprisonment, loss of employment, disowning by our families, denial of access to health services, expulsion from school, and physical attacks. This is compounded by the anti-LGBT legislation that results in severe persecution for our community members. Investing your time, energy, and capital in LGBT rights will help our community overcome these social and legal hurdles
Your donations to this project will make Tanzania safer for LGBT individuals by supporting LGBT groups and activists leading the fight against the anti-LGBT laws that are being introduced. Preventing such legislation will ensure that no one is denied access to fundamental human rights or equal access based on their gender identity or sexual orientation
