What is ECGLA?
The Eastern Cape Gay & Lesbian Association (ECGLA) represents all the letters in the LGBTIQ acronym, and not just gay and lesbian members of the pink community.
The Eastern Cape Gay & Lesbian Association (ECGLA) is a socially proactive organization which advocates for the acceptance, understanding and equality of the LGBTI community in the EC province of South Africa.
ECGLA seeks to promote and protect the rights of the LGBTI community by means of: Education, medical advice, legal support, counseling service, social programs and seeks to interact with all stakeholders in this regard.
ECGLA currently provides a counseling service to the pink community on issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, and dealing with discrimination and prejudice, as well as general non-crisis counseling. We have several qualified and experienced counselors on our team, as well as an agreement with Lifeline PE to train more in the near future.
- Presentations and public speaking:
ECGLA is at this stage holding public information events for the benefit of the pink community on matters such as health and well-being, GLBTI civil rights, and other matters related to sexual orientation and gender identity.
