The Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya (GALCK) is now galck+. Our name is no longer an abbreviation. The name change was a result of the growth and intersectionality we have witnessed in the Kenyan LGBTQ+ movement. galck+ is a reflection of this progress with inclusion and diversity at the heart of what we do. Our organisation was founded in May 2006 with a vision to create safe and enabling environments for sexual and gender minorities in the county. We are a national umbrella body for 18 LGBTQ+ led organizations working to advance the health and human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming and queer people in Kenya. We are a representation and celebration of the Kenyan LGBTQ+ community. Our work has so far inspired cohesion amongst people who appreciate diversity and recognize that everyone has a right to equal opportunities irrespective of their real or perceived sexual orientation, gender and expression. MISSION To strengthen the coalition’s capacity to provide comprehensive, rights-based services to GALCK member groups through capacity building, positive visibility and stigma reduction. VISION A safe and enabling environment for SOGIE organisations and individuals in Kenya.
