LGBT Organizations Nigeria:

The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) is a Nigeria-based registered non-for-profit organization working to protect and promote the human rights of sexual minorities nationally and regionally. We’re committed to bringing about a society that is free from discrimination and harm on the grounds of sexual orientation.

We work towards this goal through education, empowerment and engagement with the many public in Nigeria. We were founded in 2006 as a response to the discrimination and marginalization of sexual minorities in both HIV prevention programming and mainstream human rights work.

International Centre For Reproductive Health And Sexual Rights (INCRESE) is a non-profit NGO that seeks to promote sexual reproductive rights, provide health information and services to women, adolescents and sexual minorities and provide support mechanisms for those living with HIV/AIDS, victims of sexual violence and sexual minorities.
