Remembering Mikki van Zyl

It with great sadness that GALA learnt of the passing of Mikki van Zyl, a respected comrade and friend. Mikki was a talented scholar, a committed feminist and a passionate defender of human rights, and will be greatly missed by the LGBTI community.

Mikki has been involved in a number of GALA projects over the years. She served as a researcher and writer for The Aversion Project, which examined human rights abuses against lesbian and gay members of the South African Defence Force, and was also featured in the GALA publication Sex and Politics in South Africa.

Mikki is remembered not only for her contributions to social justice, but also for her warmth of heart and generosity.

GALA wishes to convey its condolences to Mikki’s family and friends at this difficult time.
