The US Embassy held a breakfast session with SA LGBTI experts and stakeholders. The session was to engage the U.S Export-Import Bank chairperson, Mr Fred Hochberg, and the dialogue was facilitated by the Deputy Chief of Mission Mrs Virginia Palmer. The discussion saw the opening remarks by Ms Mmapaseka Steve Letsike on Health issues and the fight for equal access and Prof Juan Nel on Sexual and Gender Based Violence against LGBTI community. It was clear after deliberations with Fred Hochberg and stakeholders who attended that South Africa and the African Region have a long way to go. That Rights are not a lived reality for the LGBTI community, and that much needed efforts and investment still is required to support the work done by LGBTI organisations.
