ICEBREAKERS UGANDA RESOURCE CENTER
The IBU resource center was opened in 2007 when IBU got the first office premises. This was pre smart phones, pre affordable internet and the level of comprehension of LGBTI issues like sexuality, safe sexual practices, gender and the rest were hardly understood by even LGBTI people themselves. The center was established to be a source of information, self-education and general education center for LGBT related issues.
With IEC materials about coming out, sexual health, Human Rights the Icebreakers Uganda Resource center is a one stop for anyone who needs comprehension, dialogues, research about LGBT and MSM.
The Center is boosted by the availability of space to accommodate a bigger number of people.
