Benefit for alQaws
alQaws was born as a grassroots group, formed in November 2007 after working since the end of 2001 as an independent local project in Jerusalem. Our transition to an independent national Palestinian organization was the first step in creating a sustainable, visible, and truly impactful Palestinian LGBTQ movement that represents a local discourse and uses strategies inspired by alQaws’ activists’ field experience and analysis.
Our grassroots core remains at the heart of an ever-growing movement that reaches and benefits all of society. We provide Palestinian LGBTQ activists and allies with space for creative and dialogue-based activism, create capacity-building and knowledge-sharing opportunities, build coalitions and alliances with social and political movements, and inspire critical and engaged dialogue on the diversity of sexual and gender identities and practices.
