NYN is a community of Women who Love Women (WLW) working under the auspices of the Center for Studies and Applied Science in Gender, Family and Children, and Adolescents (CSAGA). NYN was established since September, 2016, aiming to build a core group that works for the development of WLW community in many parts of northern Vietnam.
The group was formed with the hope of:
– Enhancing the presence and participation of the WLW community.
– Connecting members to raise a common voice and eliminate discrimination within the community.
– Building a positive and accurate image of the WLW community in the media.
– Creating a space of sharing and discussing, building resources to solve common problems of the WLW community.
– Creating a basis for sharing, practicing ideas and projects built by WLW.
– Training to improve skills and knowledge for WLW members to increase readiness and actively seize opportunities.
– Participating in campaigning for laws and policies that promote the recognition of the rights of LGBT individuals and couples.
