Welcome to PEMA Kenya

Championing the inclusion of GSMs in Kenya

PEMA Kenya—an organization that thrives advancing the human rights of gender and sexual minorities, specifically in Mombasa—was formed in 2008. PEMA Kenya was founded within a context of tragedy when a young gay man, shunned and stigmatized by his family because of his sexual orientation, died in May 2008. There was no one to honor his memory or give him a decent burial. Stunned by such a level of loathing for gay people, a group of gay men in Mombasa came together to find a decent and dignified resting place for him. It was this support of one of their own that gave birth to the Brotherhood, which evolved into PEMA Kenya.
PEMA Kenya had its first three-year strategic planning process in 2012, resulting in a strategic plan that saw the organization develop partnerships and networks, and engage in work with institutions that have been considered perpetrators of violence towards gender and sexual minorities. PEMA Kenya’s work with the police, religious leaders, media, healthcare providers, and advocates of the High Court of Kenya pushed the organization to realize that there was still great need to reach out to people from all walks of life and provide them with knowledge on gender and sexual minority issues.
