We use storytelling as a tool to engage and educate the general public on issues relating to LGBT persons in Nigeria.

Security Protection

We offer security and safety information to ensure that human rights violation and mob attacks are kept to a minimum.

Sexual Health

Our sexual health programme focuses on improving access to comprehensive health care services by sexual minorities in Lagos and the environs.

We recognize that living in a homophobic society has a negative impact on the well-being of sexual minorities, so psychosocial support and re-integration services for sexual minorities is an important aspect of the service we provide to community members who faces stigma, discrimination and sometimes violence.

Because we understand that some of our service users have work which are not flexible to allows them access services during working days of the week, our services are available every day of the week at the Lekki Centre to ensure flexibility for service users.
