Rewriting The Narrative: Malawi Celebrates Historic Pride Parade
Eric Sambisa is a human rights defender from Malawi who is a co-founder and currently the director of NYASA Rainbow Alliance (NRA). NRA is an LGBT+ led membership organisation with approximately 300 members working with and for the LGBT+ community. Based in Blantyre in Southern Malawi, the NRA was established in 2014 to increase the scope of the existing LGBT+ organisational landscape and address some of the gaps identified by the members of the LGBT+ community themselves. In December 2015, Eric made the brave
decision to be the first Malawian to openly come out as gay on national television.
