Arcoíris LGTB Association of Honduras

The Arcoíris Association was founded in 2003 with the aim of empowering the LGTBI community in Honduras, offering comprehensive information about health issues for people identifying as LGTBI, and defending and promoting the human rights of sexual diversity. To achieve this, Arcoíris accompanies legal cases related to human rights violations, organises events and training sessions, coordinates regional campaigns and carries out advocacy work to promote more equitable laws. The organisation is also part of the Honduran Committee for Sexual Diversity (Comité de la Diversidad Sexual de Honduras) and the Coalition Against Impunity (Coalición Contra la Impunidad).

PBI began accompanying Arcoíris in July 2015.
