Formed in 2011, Limpopo LGBTI Proudly Out (LLPO) was the first formal LGBTI organization to exist in Limpopo, South Africa’s poorest province. It organized the first LGBTI Pride event in the province in 2012. LLPO’s work centers on three strategies: empowering LGBTI communities in the province to exercise their rights, building public support for LGBTI issues, and supporting the inclusion of LGBTI rights in government services and civil society programs. Heteronormativity prevails in Limpopo and is enforced by government officials, traditional authorities and communities at large. LGBTI communities experience high levels of hatred and violence, including “corrective rape” and murder.
