About The W2W Website

OUT LGBT Well-being (a non-profit lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender organization based in Tshwane, Pretoria, South Africa) launched this website in December 2009. The website targets resourced women who have sex with women. These women make use of the internet to access lifestyle information pertaining to a range of lesbian/ WSW -related health and social issues.

Through OUT’s PRISM Programme, a Needs Assessment was conducted in 2007/2008. This programme is done as a collaborative effort between Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender (LGBT) partners in Southern Africa, Latin America and the Schorer Foundation (located in the Netherlands). Over 4 years (2007-2010), the broad aim is to upscale HIV/AIDS prevention programmes targeting LGBT people. The aim of the Needs Assessment is to contribute to the body of knowledge on risky behaviours among women-who-have-sex-with-women in Tshwane and to use such knowledge to inform programmes for this selected target group.

Funded by the Schorer Foundation, the site aims to provide advice and information about female sexuality, safer sex and sexual health, specifically in terms of same sex behavior.
