Coalition of African Lesbians

Coalition of African Lesbians (CAL) is a network of organisations committed to African lesbian equality and visibility. It works to transform Africa into a place where all lesbians enjoy the full range of human rights, and are recognised as full citizens, with rich and diverse cultures, and a significant and respected presence in all spheres of life, through personal and organisational growth. Our work is shaped by an African radical feminist understanding, informed by research, and strengthened by the claiming of social and economic power. Given the specific and intensified threats faced by lesbian activists, CAL is organising a programme to respond to the needs of lesbian human rights defenders in the region.
