INCLUSIVITY, DIVERSITY, EQUALITY
Gay rights are human rights too, there is no separation
Eswatini Sexual and Gender Minorities (ESGM) was founded to take the movement beyond the current politics as we understand them. Revolutionary movements tend to find themselves stuck when not healthily contested and challenged. ESGM aims to diversify the approach to activism and advocacy, as a whole. The time for complacency and personality politics is over, the movement of the people must be returned to the people, themselves. This is the mandate of ESGM.
The Freedom to be, and live and live your life without any opressions
