Resource type: Video
The Atlantic Philanthropies |
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and inter-sex Africans seek asylum and refuge in South Africa, where the Constitution promises equal rights. Tolerance and acceptance, however, does not come easily. Find out how gay rights activism has helped challenge and overcome xenophobia and homophobia.
PASSOP (People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty) provides support and encourages gay refugee rights activism.
PASSOP is a grantee (via a re-grant from Centre for Education Policy Development) of Atlantic’s Reconciliation & Human Rights programme in South Africa, which funds efforts to protect equal rights.
