Zimbabwe Expressive Art Workshops – Purple Hand Africa

Date grant awarded: April 17, 2019

Purple Hand Africa is an initiative for Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people of Zimbabwe founded by Trevor P. Molife. The expressive art workshops programme is critical in the rainbow journey of empowerment, a journey taken along the colors of the LGBTIQ rainbow flag. First and foremost, the workshops will provide healing through art, which in turn is effective in developing the beneficiaries self confidence. Ultimately, this work is intended to bring together LGBTIQ people from all across the spectrum to form stronger peer bonds and a stronger movement. The grant will go a long way in assisting with program implementation, which will prepare the work for the next step of livelihood promotion.
