Rainbow Identity Association
Rainbow Identity Association is the very first and remains the only organisation in Botswana to focus on the needs and rights of the transgender and intersex communities in Botswana. It was formed by a group of concerned activists in Botswana in 2008 to address the challenges faced by the transgender and intersex community in Botswana and to promote their rights, access to services and overall visibility that works to minimise stigma and discrimination in general society. After a long and tiresome struggle, one of its biggest successes was its formal registration in 2010. It has since established an office where transgender and intersex persons and their allies can gather to benefit from its services, socialise, organise and collectively act.
To advocate for the inclusion of transgender and intersex people across all spaces and to challenge the stigmatising and discriminatory social treatment of transgender and intersex bodies, identities and people as unjust.See more
