Why do we need your help?

OUT LGBT Well-being is the second oldest LGBT community group in South Africa. While we are funded to provide a range of HIV, sexual health and hate crime-related services, some of our operating costs are not covered by funders. We also aim to broaden our activities to offer additional services for much-needed challenges facing the MSM and LGBT communities, such as improving our psychosocial / counselling support. OUT runs the TEN81 clinic in Pretoria and the Engage Men’s Health services in Joburg, and the Eastern Cape, all of which are free.

You can download the application form here: https://bit.ly/2VQF0zu.

Please make sure that “OUT LGBT Well-being” is listed as the beneficiary and please email the completed form to cs@myschool.co.za. Thank you for your support!
