The LGBTIQ+ gap

123+ helps LGBTIQ+ initiatives achieve their goals by providing one-on-one support and by curating free, capacity-building tools.

We're helping to create world that is just, safe, and equitable for LGBTIQ+ people and communities.

Most initiatives working towards LGBTIQ+ rights, safety, and wellbeing do not having adequate resources, skills, or knowledge to meet their goals. We're here to change that—whether this is grass roots organisations fighting for equality or large organisations looking to better support their LGBTIQ+ staff.

Bespoke strategic support

Through our global partners network, we work directly with you, your initiative, or your organisation to develop a strategy across any of the above capacity areas.

We're in the process of building out the network to ensure that not only do we have global experts, but experts in every corner of the globe to ensure you can work with people who understand the unique considerations of your part of the world.

Depending on the size and revenue of your initiative we provide either commercial, discounted, or pro bono strategic support.

Curated Tools

Even with a global network of partners we know we'll never be able to work directly with every organisation or initiative around the world.

Therefore, we're compiling (what will be) a huge database of tools, knowledge, and resources developed by global experts for you to use. Each tool is simply explained and includes worksheets—so you can get started right away!

Oh, our tools and resources are always free and open-source.

Check out the tools!
