CAL granted observer status at the African Commission on Human and People's Rights

GALA would like to congratulate the Coalition of African Lesbians (CAL) on being awarded observer status at the African Commission on Human and People's Rights.

The granting of observer status means that CAL can now engage at the Commission as a recognised NGO and can speak on its own behalf and in its own name. This landmark decision will strengthen CAL's ability to advocate on behalf of LGBTI people and to hold to account the key body tasked with promoting human rights on the African continent. Moreover, it will allow CAL and its partners to build on the successful adoption of Resolution 275 and the progressive Report on Violence Based on Real or Perceived Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Africa.

For more information, please see CAL's official statement on this historic decision.
