The best way to end LGBT discrimination is through education and awareness. Yeksani is committed to providing information and resources to help promote equality and acceptance for all.
A platform working to counter negative media bias on LGBT+ topics, raising awareness on the LGBT+ community in the Kurdistan Region through media advocacy, as well as consulting LGBT+ individuals to write about and report incidences LGBT+ individuals face.
Yeksani was created to combat the lengthy hate campaigns the LGBT+ community has been facing in Iraq, partly due to improper media representation.
Through the power of media advocacy and awareness-raising, Yeksani strives to eliminate confusion around topics concerning the LGBT+ community, and pave the way for a more tolerant society. Yeksani is the successor of Lava Association, which had been active from 2017-2020.
We envision a just society and peaceful future where everyone feels protected, LGBT+ individuals are treated fairly and are free and accepted.
