LGBT Helping Hands 10/10/09-Triangle Project (Mowbray, South Africa)

Triangle Project offers a wide range of services for the LGBT community. These include a variety of different health services, such as sexual health clinics, counselling and the helpline, public education and training services, an Educator’s Awareness Project, community outreach and safe spaces, and facilities such as the Drop-In Centre and the Gay and Lesbian library.

Gay & Lesbian Library and Book Clubs
This specialised library provides the LGBT community and the general public with easy access to up-to-date information and literature on LGBT issues. The library is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10h00-14h00, Mondays and Tuesdays from 10h00-19h30. First Wednesday every month from 10h00 to 19h30. Triangle Project is also linked to a book club for gay men. These book clubs meet regularly and provide a pleasant and safe place for people to socialise and share access to LGBT reading material.

Drop In Centre
Our offices in Mowbray provide a safe space for all LGBTs who need assistance. Pop in for coffee, browse the books in the library, meet others for a chat or come and type up your CV. Open during business hours and until 19h00 on Tuesdays.

Media and Materials
We provide a range of literature on a wide variety of subjects relevant to LGBT lifestyles and issues of sexual orientation. These are available for distribution on request or may be viewed online under our Information section.

Triangle Project also participates in interviews and discussions on radio and television and often makes submissions to the print media on issues related to sexual orientation. We produce a quarterly newsletter and send regular email updates to keep the LGBT community and the general public informed about our activities.

Triangle Project Events
Triangle Project hosts and participates in events throughout the year that bring news of our services to the public. Public events and happenings provide an opportunity for members of the lesbian and gay community to celebrate with each other and the broader community in an open, often light-hearted, safe and accepting context. Past events include the Sex & Kultuur Festival, Day of Dialogue, Cape Town Pride, the Community Award and the annual Triangle Extravaganza. Triangle Project also participates in community based events and activities by doing talks and providing displays and information tables related to sexual orientation.
