Carlos Perera is the coordinator of Fiji’s only LGBT project, called the Sexual Minorities Project under Women’s Action for Change (WAC), and apparently the only LGBT registered project in the South Pacific (excluding Australia and New Zealand).
Continuous Battle for the removal of Sexual Orientation.

The Sexual Minorities Project deals with all aspects of LGBT issues. It advocates for LGBT rights, conducts Pride activities and networks with government, NGOs both locally and internationally, and provides basic skills, including starting your own business training to help eradicate poverty in the LGBT community. It promotes a major awareness of issues affecting LGBT people, provides counselling and a support network, and has a drop in centre with library resources. The project also organises self-esteem empowerment training for LGBT members.
