What is Gala?

Gala is a centre for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ)  culture and education in South Africa.
Our mission is, first and foremost, to act as a catalyst for the production, preservation and dissemination of knowledge on the history, culture and contemporary experiences of LGBTIQ people.

In recent years, Gala has also strengthened its commitment in areas such as education and movement-building. 

Through our different areas of work, Gala makes an important contribution to the achievement and development of the human rights of LGBTIQ people on the continent, and to social justice more broadly.
