OUT provides direct health services to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, MSM, sex workers, and injecting drug users, including HIV testing, counselling, treatment and general lifestyle advice and support.

OUT has been in existence for more than 21 years and is dedicated to the building of healthy and empowered LGBT communities in South Africa and internationally, while reducing hetrosexism and homophobia in society.


In February 2012, OUT Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT) Well-being formed a Task Team to help ensure justice in the murders of eight gay men in Gauteng. The OUT Task Team consisted of OUT as well as friends and families of the victims. The Task Team provided information to the South African Police Service (SAPS) on relevant facts but the SAPS never interacted with these initiatives.

On Tuesday 6 November 2012, and in response to questions by the DA in Parliament, the Minister of Police stated that there is a common perpetrator, known as Tony Boy, in four of the cases. This includes Boy being the suspect in the murder of Siphiwe Nhlapo in Soweto in September last year (case number Kliptown CAS 360/09/2011), where another suspect by the name of Nhlanhla Msimango was in March 2012 identified as the main suspect.
