Established in 1990, Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) is one of the oldest, most established, and respected LGBTI rights organisations in southern Africa. GALZ has managed to continue to exist and even grow over the past twenty-one years, despite operating under some challenging political and socio-economic conditions.
While GALZ carries out a range of programming designed to meet the varied needs of the LGBTI population in Zimbabwe, advocacy for the recognition and defence of LGBTI rights, when violated, has always been central to its work. At the regional level, GALZ often plays a key role in articulating the case for LGBTI rights. GALZ also plays an important role in supporting emerging organisations in other countries in the region.ShareThis
