WHOSMYTRIBE: An African campaign for sexual and gender minorities
WHO'SMYTRIBE (WMT) is an online media campaign, led by Africans, which aims to reduce stigmatisation and discrimination against sexual and gender diversity including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
The campaign has been developed by Accountability International as a means to show that sexual and gender diverse people are no different to others and must have equal rights and access to education, health, housing, work and other rights.
Images of African lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are almost non-existent both locally and internationally and if they are portrayed in the media it is generally from a very negative or stereotypical perspective. These inaccurate depictions do not portray lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Africans as human beings and as African citizens who deserve equality, respect and dignity.
This project seeks to change that.
