Dumiso Gatsha, ARISE
Botswana is one of the over thirty Sub-Saharan African countries that criminalize homosexuality, thus few LGBT activists can educate and engage stakeholders. Dumiso Gatsha is one of these activists who has received a seed grant for the project, ARISE, taking place in Gabane. ARISE uses poetry, photography and theatre as a means to alleviate the impact of stigma and discrimination of LGBT persons through workshops and safe spaces for candid conversations that will then be shared with the greater community.
