Pride Celebrations Sri Lanka Style

Posted by Preeti Mangala Shekar

PrideIn honor of many of our grantees around the world that celebrate Pride this weekend, we are excited to share an instance of how even in a country like Sri Lanka where many civilians are enduring enormous hardship amid ongoing crisis, we have groups working for gay rights and to decriminalize homosexuality - a reality in many countries including Sri Lanka.

Equal Ground, a GFW grantee since 2005, is committed to fighting the widespread homophobia prevalent in Sri Lankan society. To date, the Global Fund has supported Equal Ground with grants totaling $55,000.

The 5th annual Colombo Pride kicks off this weekend with much fanfare and festivities. Check out Equal Ground's blog for more information about events planned this weekend!
