Maggy is a lesbian activist from Zimbabwe. She is our LGBT Immigration Liaison, working with Women Asylum Seekers Together, the Lesbian Immigration Support Group and First Wednesdays to bring asylum seeking women towards FiLiA's immigration action project, which is 2018's legacy project. She works directly with asylum seeking women, supporting lesbian asylum seekers, and she actively campaigns for the rights of LGBT asylum seekers. She engages in public speaking work as well as direct community engagement.
She is also setting up a FiLiA outreach project in Matebeleland to support women and girls there. The women's projects of Harare are inaccessible to those in Matebeleland who do not share the same cultural or linguistic ties, and there is virtually no provision currently in Matebeleland.
