Online and Phone Counselling Service

We provide an active listening ear for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender on sexuality and relationship matters, as well as advice and resources on safer sex and HIV/STI related issues.

Established in 2006, the Oogachaga hotline is manned by a team of specially trained LGBT and LGBT-affirming volunteers who will ensure the confidentiality of each caller.
