Love Alliance at ICASA 2023

Love Alliance at ICASA 2023

The Love Alliance will be making waves at the 2023 ICASA conference. Partners and grantees, bringing together different key populations, will gather to address the unique challenges faced by LGBTIQ+ individuals, sex workers, and people who use drugs in relation to HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support. ICASA provides unrestricted spaces for advocacy, education, and the creative exploration of solutions to advance our goal of advancing human rights and ensuring that key populations are healthy and empowered through inclusive, people-centered SRHR.

What we will be doing at ICASA

During ICASA, the Love Alliance is hosting two spaces:

  1. A booth in the community village to highlight the work and the impact of the Love Alliance. It also provides a space for engagements.
  2. A satellite session (Tuesday the 5th of December, from 2:05 PM to 2:50 PM) that will focus on the solidarity and movement building between people who use drugs, sex workers- and LGBTIQ+ communities. The session will present how the collaboration between these communities has shifted the Pan-African movement landscape and has achieved successes in intersectional human rights advocacy. The aim of the session is to inspire and provide a space to foster exchanges across the Global South between our communities. The session will explore further engagement in a cross-action strategy that combines The Not A Criminal campaign and the Decriminalisation movement with the ongoing conversation around the Anti-Rights Movement to highlight the Love Alliance declaration's importance.

What it look like when communities lead

Taking the stage on #WorldAIDSDay2023, we asked our powerful #LoveAlliance leaders and activists what it looks like when communities lead. Watch the video and #LetCommunitiesLead !

About the Love Alliance

The Love Alliance is about us - people and our power when we come together as communities. Some of us identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer. Some of us use drugs, and some of us sell sex. Some of us are living with HIV. Some of us identify with or embody several of the above. We will use experience from our lived realities, evidence from our impact and partners from different sectors. We choose to focus on the things that bring us together rather than set us apart. uses cookies to offer the best website experience possible and to anonymously analyze website behaviour.
