SASOD is committed to ending all forms of homophobia in Guyana, including transphobia, biphobia and lesbophibia. To achieve this goal, our Homophobia(s) Programme, focuses on engaging key sectors of society where anti-LGBT prejudices are prevalent. Through a discrimination reporting and documentation system, awareness, sensitization and education activities and direct engagement with key stakeholders, the Programme seeks to cultivate positive changes in attitudes which drive stigma and discrimination against LGBT people.
SASOD serves as a key part in executing PEPFAR’s current priorities in Guyana through regionally focused efforts among the Key Populations, with the eventual goal of zero new HIV infections. The “ASK” project introduces a wide range of activities including new prevention and testing events, training workshops, referrals, case migration, stakeholder engagement and Key Population empowerment.
