Servicing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community

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.

Love Not Hate

Love not hate

Have you been threatened, hit, raped or had your property damaged or stolen because you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI)? Then you have been a victim of a hate crime.

OUT manages the Love Not Hate campaign which, together with six other civil society groups, aims to combat the scourge of LGBTI hate crimes in South Africa. We can help in the following ways:

  • Be informed: Sign up to our newsletter (email speakout@lovenothate.org.za), or visit www.lovenothate.org.za and our Facebook page. We’ll inform you about your rights and provide advice on how to deal with hate crimes.
  • Take part: We host regular safe spaces where community members can interact and engage on the issues. Email speakout@lovenothate.org.za and ask to be added to our database.
  • Ask for help: We assist LGBTI victims of hate crimes to report incidents to the authorities and provide medical, legal and psychosocial services, wherever possible. Contact us on speakout@lovenothate.org.za.
  • Report an LGBTI hate crime and help us monitor these incidents using our unique reporting website here.
