Introducing the Safe Space Alliance

What is the Safe Space Alliance?

The Safe Space Alliance is a LGBTQI+ led nonprofit organisation that aims to help people identify, navigate, and create safe spaces for LGBTQI+ communities worldwide. Being part of the Safe Space Alliance is being part of a global and collaborative safe space community.

What is a safe space?

A safe space is a space where LGBTQI+ communities can freely express themselves without fear. It is a space that does not tolerate violence, bullying, or hate speech towards LGBTQI+ communities.

A safe space does not guarantee 100% safety, rather, it’s a space that has your back if an incident (violence, bullying, or hate speech) were to occur.

How do I list a safe space?

Anyone anywhere in the world with a genuine interest in creating safe spaces for LGBTQI+ communities can list a safe space with us. We welcome and value all spaces regardless of size, location, and category/industry. You can list a physical space (with street address), mobile space (someone that travels around such as a consultant), digital space, and/or heritage space (a safe space of historical significance to LGBTQI+ communities).

Listing with us is free. You also have the option of paid listings with extra features if you’d like to support the work we do as a global LGBTQI+ nonprofit organisation. You can list a space using our online form.

How else can I get involved?

In addition to listing safe spaces, you can:

  • Sponsor our work
  • Become a LGBTQI+ Partner (for LGBTQI+ organisations)
  • Become an Allied Partner (for organisations that have the LGBTQI+ community as one focus among others)
  • Volunteer as part of our Safe Space Volunteer Network (SSVN)
  • Donate
