About Us:

Helem, is the first LGBTQIA+ rights organization in the Arab world, officially established in Beirut, Lebanon in 2001. Its mission is to lead the struggle for the liberation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Intersex, Transgendered, Queer (LGBTQIA+) and other people with non-conforming sexualities and/or gender identities in Lebanon and the SWANA region from all sorts of violations of their individual and collective civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights. Our goal is to empower young LGBTQIA+ leaders to advocate for their own liberation. We seek to create initiatives and spaces where our communities can leverage unity through diversity and build power. We protect and support individuals with the resources to resist the harm caused by homophobia and transphobia. We empower our youth through education and community building, and we mobilize to change the laws, policies, and practices that deny us equality and reduce our quality of life.

Helem, a leading Civil Society Organization (CSO), is dedicated to promoting positive change and advancing vital causes. With a strong commitment to transparency and accountability, we have conducted various campaigns to champion our mission. Ensuring the financial integrity of these campaigns is fundamental to our mission's success. We take pride in fostering collaborations and empowering other organizations within the community. In the summer and winter of 2024, we will host a seminar that welcomes four dynamic organizations dedicated to our mission.
