ALMN was established in June 2019 by B Camminga and John Marnell, in an effort to coordinate and spotlight research on all facets of LGBTQI+ migration. B and John are both based at the African Centre for Migration and Society (ACMS), University of the Witwatersrand.

While currently coordinated by B and John, ALMN is envisaged as a member-run network. In the coming months, details of the ALMN advisory board will be made public. In 2021, we expect to release more information about ALMN’s operating structure, including its member-selected secretariat.
