About us

TPLPI is a vibrant, dynamic, and compassionate community-based resource center for young people living with HIV and other key populations in Nigeria. Our focus is on supporting and uplifting young Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex individuals living with HIV (LGBTQILHIV), Sex Workers living with HIV (SWLHIV), People who use and inject drugs living with HIV (PWUIDLHIV), and more. We are particularly dedicated to the well-being of Adolescent and Young Sexual and Gender Minorities (AYSGM) in Lagos state, including young Gay, Bisexual, and Queer Men (GBQ), who often face unique challenges and barriers to accessing adequate health services and support. Our journey began as an informal group in 2019, driven by a deep desire to make a positive difference in the lives of young key population members.

Formally registered in 2022, we have been on a mission to create an enabling environment that fosters inclusivity, reduces stigma and discrimination, and empowers young people living with HIV and other key populations. Through research, advocacy, education, capacity building, and socio-economic empowerment, we work tirelessly to break down barriers and improve the quality of life for our community members. At TPLPI, our vision is to create a society where the health, rights, and well-being of all persons living with HIV are upheld, regardless of their gender, sexuality, or religion. We strive to create a space where everyone feels valued, respected, and supported in their journey towards improved health and well-being. With a strong commitment to civic partnerships and community engagement, we believe in the power of collective action and collaboration to drive positive change. Together, we can create an environment that embraces diversity, celebrates individuality, and paves the way for a brighter future for all young people living with HIV and other key populations.
