Gender & Identity in the Global South

Voices on the Ground

For the project Gender & Identity in the Global South Humanity in Action Denmark invited six young LGBTQI+ activists from Kenya, Pakistan and Uganda to Denmark. The activists partook in official debates, gave lectures at different educational institutions, held network meetings and taught an online course.

The project delved into the living conditions of transgender people in Pakistan, human rights violations in Uganda and the presentation of LGBTQI+ issues in Kenya to foreign dignitaries.

The young activists spoke at events during Pride Week 2015. During the second week, the activists visited highschools to discuss with local youth what Gender & Identity means in the Global South.
