Extraqueericular is a queer-owned and operated network for the LGBTQIA+ community. As a social enterprise, our mission is to support Non-governmental Organisations (NGO) that are advocating for the rights of and providing wellbeing services to LGBT+ people in the 35 Commonwealth countries where being gay is criminalised. We enourage everyone to read our constitution and explore ways we can work together to improve the lives of the LGBTQIA+ community in the Commonwealth.

Thirty-five of the Commonwealth's 53 nations, representing two billion people, criminalize homosexual activity. Penalties range from jail time to execution.

How we can help

Our assistance takes many different forms and is defined and determined by the needs of the NGOs that partner with us. Ways we can help include:

  • Development of custom Web-based solutions (i.e. websites, software applications, digital deliverables, etc.)
  • Donations of professional skills, equipment, consulting, or research
  • Appealing to sympathetic political figures in the United Kingdom
  • Promoting and publicising projects for Extraqueericular members to volunteer their skills and time for partner NGOs remotely or in-person
  • Fundraising
  • Awareness raising
  • Donations of time. Check out our Community Hours

Community Hours

Every month we offer 4 hours of free website maintenance and consulting to registered charities, not-for-profit organisations, and community groups that work on issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community. This work can be done remotely or on-site within London zones 1 and 2.
