KALEIDOSCOPE DIVERSITY TRUST 

The Kaleidoscope Trust works to advance the human rights of LGBT people in countries where they lack their equal rights, particularly in the Commonwealth. We do this by listening, amplifying and communicating their voices to a wider audience to persuade public and political opinion and work as a catalyst for meaningful change to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
