The Women, Gender Diversity, and Sexual Minorities Working Group is an initiative of the Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines. We are dedicated to fostering accessibility and diversity in psychedelic science, practice, and discourses, addressing and dismantling sexist, heteronormative, transphobic and homophobic forms of oppression, and allying with other under-represented communities to combat oppressive practices in psychedelic communities and science. We envision collective practices where people who have been traditionally marginalized may share a seat at the table and have their voices heard to ensure equitable access to the benefits that psychedelics and plant medicine offer. We cover social, political, ethical, and therapeutic perspectives affecting women and sexual and gender minority people. We are committed to promoting the presence of people of color, women and LGBTQI+ people in the field (conferences, events, documentaries, media interviews etc.,) and to further psychedelic research of, by, and for sexual and gender minority people, as well as advising providers on LGBTQI+ affirmative practices in psychedelic medicine research, policy, and practice.

Chacruna is a voluntary organization run by a team of experts and enthusiasts who give their time freely to bring education and cultural understanding about psychedelic plant medicines to a wider audience. We promote a bridge between the ceremonial use of sacred plants and psychedelic science and envisage a world where plant medicines and other psychedelics are preserved, protected, and valued as part of our cultural identity and integrated into our social, legal and health care systems.
