The Campaign Against Homophobia (KPH) is a nationwide public-benefit nongovernmental organization with non-profit status working for the equal rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We were established in 2001.
We conduct a wide range of activities in order to increase tolerance and acceptance while tackling stereotypes and prejudices including:
- Empowering members of the LGBT community
- Research and report writing
- Social awareness campaigns
- Combating sexism and working towards gender equality
KPH specializes in organizing large social awareness and educational campaigns aiming at integrating LGBT people into society. These include the poster campaign and photo exhibit “Let Them See Us” or the annual “Queer May” festival in Krakow. We have also trained and educated students, teachers, social workers, lawyers, police, parents and others.
We offer psychological and legal help to victims of homophobia. We are very active in lobbying for equal right on the national level as well as internationally. More can be found on the Monitoring site.
KPH has been part of many international initiatives and networks working on LGBT issues. We have participated in many youth exchanges, NGO platforms and social campaigns across Europe and beyond. We continue to look for further opportunities to cooperate and learn from other organizations as well as lend our know-how. KPH is particularly interested in working with countries East of Poland.
