Esdra Yaveth Sosa Sierra

HRD, Director
Asociación Arcoiris

Esdra Yaveth Sosa Sierra is the Director of Asociación Arcoiris, a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) organisation that promotes equality and equity for the LGBTI community in Honduras. She is also a member of the Grupo Lesbico / Bisexual Litos. In 2013, Asociación Arcoiris's offices were broken into and perpetrators removed the computer operating the organisation's security cameras. The group continues to operate today despite the extremely high levels of violence faced by LGBTI rights defenders in Honduras.


LGBTI defenders in Honduras are doubly discriminated against. They are discriminated firstly because they are human rights defenders and secondly because they defend LGBTI rights.
