Who is behind
forbidden colours?

Forbidden Colours was founded by 6 friends who are part of the LGBTI community and wanted to create a serious and sustainable movement to help LGBTI people in need:
Benoit Vancauwenberghe, Didier Brouwers, Gabriel Goffoy, Gregory Hye, Olivier Onghena-‘t Hooft, Peter de Caluwe.

Forbidden Colours is the first LGBTI fund hosted by the King Baudouin Foundation, who together with the 6 founders and 3 advisers Leonie Nelissen, Rémy Bonny and Lukas Dhont select the projects we support.
