The Coalition of African Lesbians is a lesbian-rights pressure group in Africa.[1]

In 2010, the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights declined to give the CAL observer status and rejected the group's May 2008 application.[2] However, in 2014, the CAL submitted another application, which in 2015 was accepted.[3]
