Fluxies was founded in 2017 by Paige Fashoni, as FLUX Undies. Being the first brand of period underwear to land in the UK, when reusable period products were almost non-existent, we started on our mission to reshape the future of period care. Since then, more than 200,000 people have switched to our reusable period underwear and we've stopped over 40 million (!!!) disposables from going to landfill. Fluxies also features a gender neutral range.

Helem, is the first LGBTQIA+ rights organization in the Arab world, officially established in Beirut, Lebanon in 2001. Its mission is to lead the struggle for the liberation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Intersex, Transgendered, Queer (LGBTQIA+) and other people with non-conforming sexualities and/or gender identities in Lebanon and the SWANA region from all sorts of violations of their individual and collective civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights. Our goal is to empower young LGBTQIA+ leaders to advocate for their own liberation. We seek to create initiatives and spaces where our communities can leverage unity through diversity and build power. We protect and support individuals with the resources to resist the harm caused by homophobia and transphobia. We empower our youth through education and community building, and we mobilize to change the laws, policies, and practices that deny us equality and reduce our quality of life.

Who we are
PrEPster was founded in October 2015 by four London based HIV prevention activists, in response to the lack of clear and concise educational info available about PrEP. In particular, those activists were concerned about the lack of information to key communities including gay and bi men, Black African communities, trans people, sex workers and migrants.
PrEPster is known for being independent from any statutory or voluntary sector organisations. We believe that our work should be led by and should over-serve populations that are less likely to access PrEP education materials but are most in need of it. Our work focuses on being diverse, ensuring that those communities of concern are at the heart of our planning and our work.
Collectively, we have a wealth of over 50 years experience in public health and advocacy, and most of us are either living with HIV, PrEP users or are in sero-discordant relationships.
PrEPster is a program of The Love Tank, a not-for-profit community interest community (CIC) that promotes the health and wellbeing of under-served communities through education, capacity building and research.
Rainbow Railroad is a global not-for-profit organization that helps LGTBQI+ people facing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics. In a time when there are more displaced people than ever before, LGBTQI+ people are uniquely vulnerable due to systemic, state-enabled homophobia and transphobia. These factors either displace them in their own country or prevent them from escaping harm.
Somewhere safe where someone can wait until the Police or a trusted contact can reach them or they have been able to access any necessary information and advice to keep them safe.
Access to a phone if required to call Sussex Police, a trusted contact or another support service.
Sussex Police work closely with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities to promote equality and encourage the reporting of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic related hate crime.
We have a network of CEAs throughout the districts of Sussex so there are points of contact locally. For more information head to our LGBT+ page.
LGBT+ CEAs are established across the force. Similar to other liaison officer roles, they receive specialist inputs to raise their knowledge and understanding, and create awareness in LGB and T issues. LGBT+ CEAs will act as a point of contact for LGBT+ communities and individuals, to build relations to increase trust, confidence and encourage reporting of crime.
In the summer of 2015, after a volunteering on the ground, our small team assessed what the biggest needs were for refugees in Calais and Dunkirk so we could focus our time and resources. We met with refugees in the camp and they described to us how they’d had their most basic human rights refused, we heard repeated stories of daily abuse and humiliation inflicted by gangs and shockingly, the CRS French military police (paid for by the UK.) It was very clear that most people lacked access to basic health care, aid and shelter. Following the photograph of Syrian toddler Alan Kurdi, (who had tragically drowned crossing the Mediterranean) appearing on the front pages of most mainstream newspapers, we quickly started to receive hundreds of emails offering help and thousands of pound in donations. These donations enabled our team to grow significantly.
