The South African Constitution was the first in the world to protect the rights of sexual and gender minorities. We have some of the strongest protections globally for LGBTQIA+ people yet because of harmful myths and attitudes, the LGBTQIA+ community can be the victims of gender-based violence, bullying and hate crimes. Our new info leaflet, Stand Proud, provides information about the LGBTQIA+ community, tackles myths and gives some guidance on coming out. Released on International Pride Day, 28 June.
You are a unique and special person that deserves to find love and happiness!
