Sexual Rights

At ISHRAI, we firmly believe that everyone deserves to live a life that honors their sexual rights and identity. We are dedicated to advocating for and safeguarding the sexual rights of LGBTQIA+ individuals in Nigeria. Our Sexual Rights program seeks to dismantle discrimination, challenge stigmas, and create an environment where everyone can freely express their sexual orientation and gender identity without fear or prejudice.

Understanding Sexual Rights

Sexual rights are human rights. They encompass the right to freely make decisions about one’s sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression, free from coercion, discrimination, or violence. At ISHRAI, we are committed to advancing the sexual rights of LGBTQIA+ individuals, recognizing that everyone’s journey is unique, and their rights should be upheld and respected.

  2. Support and Resources: We provide resources, information, and support to individuals seeking to understand and assert their sexual rights. Our workshops and educational programs aim to empower LGBTQIA+ individuals with knowledge and tools to navigate challenges they may face.

  3. Legal Assistance: We offer legal support to individuals whose sexual rights have been violated. Our team is dedicated to advocating for justice and ensuring that those who perpetrate discrimination or violence are held accountable.

  4. Counseling and Well-being: Our trained counselors offer a safe space to discuss issues related to sexual rights, providing emotional support and guidance to help individuals navigate societal pressures and challenges.
