Over the years, many countries, cultures, and attitudes have been changing positively towards the LGBTQIA+ community. Many individuals from the community no longer live in fear of persecution and can now form legally recognised relationships. Even though acceptance and equality have improved, many people are still living in hostile environments. Countries that were previously making positive changes are now shifting their attitudes and regressing, citing traditional values. It is now more important than ever to present the LGBTQIA+ community positively and help connect the community, wherever they might live. Whether from being made aware of upcoming events, the latest apps or services that might benefit them, Wecare.LGBT was designed to help the global community.

Wecare.LGBT, an open-source project focused on collecting, organising and sharing LGBTQIA+ related information with the world. The project was created to ensure that community information is recorded and made available freely in a format that is accessible to all. The project aims to become a central library for all LGBTQIA+ related data that will grow over time and become a valuable resource widely accessed and used worldwide. Wecare.LGBT was designed so that those from within the community can add and manage the data. All of the information is then made freely available to all
