Capable LGBTI organisations

Capable LGBTI organisations are essential in terms of supporting individual LGBTI people, giving a voice to the LGBTI community and aligning with different players in the broader LGBTI movement. They need to function at an “operational minimum” before they can start doing advocacy effectively.

How do we think this works? Here are a few of our assumptions:
“LGBTI representation is most effective when speaking with one voice” (Letter M in the graphic below)
“For effective advocacy, community-based organisations need a sustainable approach, sufficient capacity (e.g. funds, staff) and skills (e.g. management and advocacy)” (Letter N in the graphic below)
