Minority Women in Action (MWA)

Minority Women in Action was formed in the year 2006, following a conference organized by Urgent Action Fund and partners that brought together Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) individuals in East Africa. During this conference, many of the women realized that despite the overwhelming representation of SOGIE issues from organisations, Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer (LBQ) women issues were highly ignored. This called for the formation of an organization that specifically catered for the needs and rights of Lesbian, Bisexual and Queer women in Kenya.

Mission: to ensure that LBQ women have: full rights over their self and body, the right to self-accomplishment, full and equal protection of the law and real freedom from discrimination and violence.

Vision: Guided by a feminist principle MWA envisions a country free of oppressive and discriminative laws again Lesbian, Bisexual, Queer (LBQ) women; and a society free of lesbophobia, biphobia, transphobia and homophobia.
