Justice for Gay Africans Society (JfGA) is a UK-Based collaborative of activists, artists, academics, politicians and others designed to draw on the leadership and insight of Black people in the UK to affect positive change for Black LGBTI communities in Africa and Europe.
JfGA is currently focusing its work to being a think-tank, educational and discussional to ensure that policy-makers get the chance to listen and engage with us in discussing policies that affect us. This role also means that we engage our wider community within the black diaspora to keep the issue of LGBTI people in the discussion. JfGA wants to achieve this through events, collaborations, lobbying and influencing at all levels where decisions are made or socio-cultural identities shaped.
JfGA is wholly run by volunteers and is non-funded. These volunteers also, apart from giving their time and expertise, cover whatever expenses they incur in moving this campaign forward.
Since our founding in 2009, we have worked with the likes of UK govt Dept for International Development (DfID), the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Football Association (The FA), England, many Unions and Universities across the UK and have given talks in Holyrood Palace in collaboration with a Committee on International Human Rights issues, churches and local sports organisations, amongst others.
