The region’s office aims to link people and organizations with Africa and the Diaspora doing research (both academic and community based) in areas related to gender and sexuality in Africa. IRN Africa provides an online forum for people interested in approaching sexual rights and human rights from the perspective of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer studies or in surveying the research and activism on particular lesbian, gay, bisexual, all sexual, transgender issues and issues affecting women and girls.

Currently, our three major projects are IRN Virtual Library and Learning Centre, Outliers Magazine, as well as the SRHR Radio Drama, “Voices from the Shadows (LGBTI Series).”
