Building Self-Esteem and Understanding Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity in Burkina Faso.

This video presents the testimonies of young gay men and lesbian women who participated in a training on self-esteem. Through those trainings, the people who are usually isolated in society, gained confidence and dared to be themselves. They felt part of a diverse and inclusive community, growing through the safe spaces and activities held by the organisation Alternative Burkina, supported by COC Nederland for the past 2 years.
