This paper presents the work of Voice of the Voiceless (VOVO), a civil society organization based in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and development partner of Oxfam. VOVO is working to integrate intersectionality in its work with lesbian women, bisexual women and trans-women (LBT). This work highlights the importance of using intersectional awareness to build bridges and form alliances in an effort to challenge the status quo in a country marred by a serious erosion of women’s rights. However, the lessons learned from this experience challenge the conjuncture of identity politics and intersectionality, which is both essential yet problematic.
