LBT soccer competition in Uganda

The first ever OGERA Cup Tournament, a soccer competition for lesbian, bisexual and trans* (LBT) women attracted a crowd of more than 100 spectators. The Organization for Gender Empowerment and Rights Advocacy (OGERA) gathered 42 LBTs, divided into 6 teams to compete against each other.

PlanetRomeo Foundation funding enabled OGERA to organize the event, including preliminary human rights trainings and outreach activities.

The tournament also raised the attention of the Ugandan football association (FUFA). The champions of this year’s tournament were LMB The Smashers and the OGERA Titans came in second. All participants were awarded a certificate. OGERA hopes to turn the soccer competition into an annual event. Visit our OGERA project page for more information.
