The Rainbow Pride Foundation (RPF)

The Rainbow Pride Foundation (RPF) is a not-for-profit organisation in Fiji that advocates for the human rights of LGBTQI persons so that they are respected and are able to live with dignity, free from discrimination, persecution, and violence; and where their human rights are upheld. Its mandate includes promoting LGBTQI Rights and Equality, Social Justice, Health & Wellbeing, Economic Empowerment and SOGIESC Inclusion in Climate Justice and Disaster Risk Reduction. It empowers and encourages LGBTQI individuals in Fiji to be resilient and to participate fully in democratic decision-making in their households, communities and national processes. It also works with various partners to promote equal access to sustainable livelihoods, economic assets and resources among LGBTQI people; ensuring that they are not barred from accessing the basic education, health and other services that are enjoyed by their fellow citizens which are essential for their personal well-being and growth. It encourages LGBTQI persons and their allies to come together to advocate for equal treatment for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
