Pan-Africa ILGA Can Officially Work For The Recognition Of LGBTI Rights Throughout Africa

Written by

The Pan-Africa ILGAPan-Africa ILGA group (PAI) have obtained a legal status as a non-profit organization, allowing it to work for the recognition of LGBT rights throughout the African continent.

PAI, which has about 150 militants, is part of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGAILGA), which since 1978 is fighting to bring us equality. ILGA is divided into several groups with Pan-Africa ILGA and also ILGA-Asia, ILGA-Europe, ILGA-LAC (Latin America and the Caribbean), Ilga-North America and ILGA-Oceania (Aotearoa/New Zealand, Australia and Pacific Islands).

Mostly Africans LGBT groups did not obtain official status and therefore cannot represent the community as they wish in their country.

The group here was recognized by the South African authorities and invited other countries, such as Mozambique, which recently decriminalized homosexuality, to consider these groups too.
