Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya (GALCK), also known as Kenya Gays and Lesbian Trust (KEGALE), is an organisation founded in 2008, working to ensure that "Kenya's anti-LGBTI laws are repealed and protective laws for LGBTI people are enacted. In addition, GALCK provides legal advice and assistance to LGBTI people who are victims of Kenya's existing anti-LGBTI laws or who are victims of physical violence or any form of discrimination that may be related to their known or presumed sexual orientation."
