BREAK THE SILENCE ABOUT LGBT VIOLENCE

Violence comes in different shapes and forms. Within the LGBT community, people are often subjected to emotional, physical and sexual abuse by family, peers and persons in positions of power. Such situations often go unnoticed due to the lack of explicit protection for the LGBTIQ community in Sri Lanka.

If you or someone you know has been a victim of any form of violence based on your sexual orientation or gender identity, share your story with us. We can support you with legal, medical and emotional advice.
