People we like to support
Global Butterflies often collaborates with other organisations and individuals to bring trans & non-binary issues to the surface. From charities to registered mental health practitioners, we like to join up with others when we can. Some of the organisations that we’ve collaborated with and admire include:
GiveOut is an award-winning UK-based charity raising funds for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) human rights activism worldwide.
They ensure that activists and their organisations have more of the resources they need to defend their communities and campaign for change by growing philanthropy in the UK. They provide activists with resources, not strategies, to support them in using their own expertise to effect change.
