Because of security issues within Sudan the local LGBT population are not publicly visible. Because of this we did not see any locally-organised events planned within the country for IDAHOT 2016. Sudan was, however included in a cross-national campaigns run by Bedayaa Organization for LGBTQI in the Nile Valley and Mesahat Foundation.
This campaign, which took place in Algeria, Egypt and Sudan, addressed discrimination and stigma across the region. The campaign included online messages aimed at raising awareness and tackling damaging attitudes which contribute to marginalization and stigma.
