ABOUT THE RAINBOW PRIDE FOUNDATION
The Rainbow Pride Foundation (RPF) is a not-for-profit organisation legally registered in Fiji that advocates for the human rights of LGBT 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 and Health & Well-being. It empowers and encourage LGBT individuals in Fiji 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 LGBT people; ensuring that they are not barred from accessing 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 LGBT persons and their allies to come together to advocate for the equal treatment for all persons, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
The organisation is founded upon principles of fundamentally and universally recognised human rights and freedoms, specifically the principle that all persons should be treated equally regardless of actual or supposed personal characteristics, including gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, primary language, disability, economic status, family status or opinion.
