LGBT Rights Awareness and Legal Support

Local Partner:

  • Colors Rainbow

Equality Myanmar works with local partner Colors Rainbow to support LGBT people in their rights challenges in Yangon. Human rights and legal awareness training workshops are being held in six Yangon townships. Equality Myanmar trains LGBT paralegals in mediation and case management skills to assist LGBT people in their legal challenges (in collaboration with human rights lawyers). This grant also supports Colors Rainbow in sharing information around the country in coordination with the LGBT Rights Network. Finally, these activities will feed into advocacy and engagement with public policy makers and government officials.
