Application Deadline: Sunday, 28 February 2021.

RFSL – the Swedish Federation for LGBTQI Rights is launching the call for applications for the third cycle of the Rainbow Advocacy Program (RAP) 2021 – 2022. RAP is a 13-month-long fellowship for LGBTIQ+ activists from the Global South and East to learn, network, collaborate, and gain hands-on experience in UN advocacy.

The program is visionary as well as unique in its approach as it combines both the human rights and the development frameworks, with the latter focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030. The fellows will have the opportunity to put into practice their knowledge by engaging with UN mechanisms in Geneva (HRC) and New York (HLPF), as well as by developing and implementing a funded 8-month-long advocacy project. In addition, fellows will be matched with a mentor for expert support throughout the fellowship and project implementation. LGBTIQ+ activists who have basic knowledge about international human rights mechanisms, have 1-3 years of advocacy experience, and belong to an LGBTIQ organization are the primary target groups for this program.
