Who we are
Icebreakers Uganda is a nonprofit support organization for Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender people focused on Sexual Health, Sexual Health Rights advocacy, community mobilization and HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention for all LGBT people. We also fundamentally focus on breaking barriers for LGBTI people seeking health services in different places of their choice by creating partnerships, lobbying stake holders, orienting service providers and constantly reminding the LGBTI people of sexual risks and other factors that we all face as sexual minorities in Uganda.
Formed in 2004, Icebreakers Uganda caters for LGBT Ugandans of 18 years and over - who are 'coming out', as well as men and women who are already 'out, or having feelings of loneliness or isolation due to sexuality or sexual related orientation. We were registered in August 2012 under the companies’ act.
Our team is consistent, dynamic and dedicated to serve the LGBTI community despite the challenges and dangers. We also find pride in working with a number of partners right from MSM CSOs, LGBTI organizations, Mainstream/General Hospitals, volunteers and individual well-wishers.
