As Lady Phyll prepared for her new role as the leader of the Kaleidoscope Trust international LGBTQ rights group, she expressed her support for this blog’s model of working closely with local activists in countries with repressive anti-gay laws. “Those of us with access and influence in the countries responsible for the implementation of anti-LGBTQ laws in countries around the world have a responsibility to actively dismantle those oppressive laws. In order to do that effectively, it’s vital we work with activists on the ground to understand social and cultural nuances, how those laws are enacted and what they need from us to do their work. “Allyship and solidarity in this global struggle is very much about listening, about handing over resources and about working collaboratively. I look forward to hearing from and working with activists around the world to understand better how Kaleidoscope Trust can continue to be of service.”
