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.

I bet we can all relate to this experience: 👇🏿👇🏿. A MUST read! Link in her bio! 🏳️‍🌈

Repost from @ohtimehin using @RepostRegramApp - “I slept in her bed once. Or rather, she invited me to sleep in her bed once, and I spent enough of the night so alive with lust — so hyper-aware of the crush of her hip against mine, her naked breast close enough to taste, the crucifix burning against my skin — that I never accepted the offer again.” I’ve just finished reading #SheCalledMeWoman, a powerful anthology of first-hand stories told by queer Nigerian women.
Among other things, it brought home to me the need for those of us who are somewhat able to absorb the costs to be more deliberate about our visibility. I’ve published an essay about the emotional trauma that caused me to dissociate from my queerness, and how I made my way back to myself.
Queer people are everywhere, including wherever you are. Get to know us. The link to the essay is temporarily in my bio 🌈💖🌈.
