Considering the roles that leaders play in society and their responsibility to represent all their constituents, it is critical that leaders advocate on behalf of the LGBTI members of society. Southern African countries have numerous organisations that represent the needs of LGBTI individuals, often under very challenging conditions. These organisations can be more effective if they have the support of political, traditional and religious leaders. Furthermore, advocacy for LGBTI populations must be framed within the context of sexual and reproductive health rights.
