We provide Personal, HIV and AIDS Counselling and do referrals for Legal Counselling and Advise. We cover matters ranging from understanding own sexual orientation, health status, coming out (LGBT and HIV+), mitigating/fighting stigma and discrimination, homelessness, drug and alcohol use/abuse, living positively, drafting wills, same-sex marriages and divorce.

We are a HCT Clinic providing among other things HIV Counselling and Testing, STI and TB screening and treatment referrals.

Human Rights Advocacy and Campaigning are at the heart of our work. Our current work include human right education on Rights and Responsibility, Gender and Sexuality, Fighting Discrimination of LGBT Youth In Schools, and ‘Hate Crimes’ primarily against LGBT people. At a Policy development level, our current work is on the Sexual Offenses Bill, Domestic Partnerships and further developments of the Civil Unions Act.

We house an extensive Library, Research and Resource Centre on LGBT, women, youth, children, sex and sexuality, sexual health, human rights, reproductive rights, social, political, health, disability, and many other aspects of communities. It also houses a collection of LGBT, HIV, AIDS and related media clippings in its archives. These will, over time, be made available on this website.

Inlcuded in our Social & Political Programme are Development Seminars, Movie Screenings, Interest and Support Group.

We work with KZN Gay and Lesbian Tourism Association, hosts Durban Pride, Mr and Miss Durban Pride, Miss Gay Durban, the KZN LGBT Fashion and Hair Show, KZN LGBT Talent Show and KZN LGBTI Activism Awards.
