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.

UNDER THE RAINBOW gets a Ghanaian screening.

In @undertherainbow_thedocumentary
a Nigerian lesbian narrates her journey of self-discovery. As she takes us through her experiences, we see first-hand what it is to be homosexual in an unforgivingly homophobic society, and the total alienation that can come from being despised, ostracized and ridiculed by the ones you love. This is a story of rejection and loss, but also the powerful story of the triumph that comes with love.” The screening is going to be part of our #Speakeasy series and hence would be held on the 26th of July 2019

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to the screening yesterday! We were so happy to see everyone having such a great time enjoying the movie, socializing, and culminating the evening by watching Nigeria win over Cameroon. ❤️.

If you missed this one, not to worry. Other screenings are in the works, so stayed tuned for information on how to register for that one.
