TIERs Nigeria partners STER to launch the HERE Campaign
The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) and the Stand To End Rape (STER) Initiative are set to launch the HERE campaign, a storytelling photography exhibition aimed at telling stories through pictures at 4pm on Sunday, April 30, 2017 at Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos.
According to Olumide Makanjuola, Executive Director of TIERs, the exhibition is aimed at telling stories of survivors of abuse both sexual and physical violence through pictures. The exhibition shows visual narrative of people who have been abused for no just reasons.
“Through the power of visuals, the HERE photo exhibition is aimed at urging people to kick against abuse in the society,” Makanjuola said.
The exhibition opens on Sunday, April 30 with a launch event. It will stay open to the public until Sunday, May 14, 2017.
The Initiative for Equal Rights (TIERs) is a Nigeria-based registered non-for-profit organisation working to protect and promote the human rights of sexual minorities nationally and regionally. We’re committed to bringing about a society that is free from discrimination and harm on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. We work towards this goal through education, empowerment and engagement with the many publics in Nigeria. We were founded in 2005 as a response to the discrimination and marginalisation of sexual minorities in both HIV prevention programming and mainstream human rights work. We currently have 11 full time members of staff and over 50 volunteers peer educators.
