Raising Awareness of the realities of African and Caribbean LGBTQIA+ culture in order to fight homophobia and transphobia
We make an effort to fulfil our mission by participating in various public conferences and by directing workshops on tolerance and intimidation in Quebec institutions. We work as well in HIV and STD prevention with our target population.
Smashing isolation and maximising the integration of all
Integration includes understanding of sexual orientation, self-acceptance, and living in harmony with others whether they appear similar or different. Discussion groups and personal one on one meeting as well as outings and events are key to successful integration.
Promoting african and caribbean LGBTQIA+ culture
Massimadi and Afro Pride are two of African Rainbow’s major ways of propagating African and Caribbean LGBTQIA+ culture. We take pains to ensure that our message invites the community to become sensitive to respect diversity in all its forms—encouraging genuine dialogue.

African Rainbow is a safe space by and for LGBTQIA + African and Caribbean people.
