Destabilising Heteronormativity Project 2015 – 2020


An innovative, multi-partner, multi-pronged project that includes significant sub-grants and seed-funding for new LGBT NGOs in Africa: Destabilising Cis and Heteronormativity

Accountability International hopes to positively affect access to health and other human rights through destabilising heteronormativity and destigmatising lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer sexual orientations and transgender, intersex, and gender non-confirming gender identities (LGBTIQGNC) and all forms of sexual orientation and gender identity expression (SOGIE) in African communities.

In order to do this destabilising heteronormative, binary gender thinking is necessary. This requires an analysis and dialogue around the status quo, both in terms of gender, but also in terms of sexuality. Thus, in 2014 Accountability International began the Destabilising Heteronormativity Project.
