About us

Stichting Out & Proud is Netherlands African LGBTI organisation whose aim is to advocate for the equality of the minority with the background from countries whose law towards LGBT are homophobic and discriminative. We are a non-government community based organisation formed in March 2013 to address Human Rights issues based on sexual orientation and gender identity.  

It is advocacy that has made Stichting Out & Proud an integral part of the human rights struggle on the international scene with remarkable achievements. The organisation is directed by a Board of Directors, the secretariat is headed by the Chairman, and our operations and those of member organizations solely target LGBTIs. 

We envision a society where lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people enjoy equal rights like everyone else. We want people to be able to live according to humanist values with no special privileges for other worldviews.
