About Us

The Equality Hub is a non-governmental organization that was founded in 2017 by two women who have been actively volunteering and working with vulnerable and sexual minority populations. They were concerned with the discrimination and social injustices against female sexual minorities and decided to start this initiative with the aim of providing the following:

  1. A social space to convene and bond with female sexual minorities which enables conversations about issues and challenges they face, and find ways to mitigate them.
  2. The means and capacity to empower and strengthen female sexual minorities in various capacities.
