Where will your money go?
Each print you purchase will provide a LGBTIQ+ individual or family one complete food box, hygiene products (including face masks, soap and sanitary pads), and vital electricity credit.
For many who identify as LGBTIQ+ in the cape flats and townships, home is a place where many sleep rough and regularly need to move about - often because their family of origin has made their lives impossible through expressions of violence, prejudice, homophobia or transphobia.
Water and sanitation is a constant issue, and many find themselves living without basic sanitary conditions and live in spaces that are unhygienic. Many LGBTIQ+ individuals group together in chosen families, to support and care for each other through generations - there are children and older people in these communities. As with any families there is love and care, but also much vulnerability that has been severely heightened through the pandemic.
Your print purchase will bring change to those most at-risk.
