The Simon Nkoli Anti-Apartheid Committee (SNAAC) was formed in Toronto in the mid-80s. The SNAAC was active on anti-apartheid work within the LGBT community in Toronto and on anti-homophobia organizing within the anti-apartheid movement. Nkoli was a South African gay anti-apartheid activist, working with the Congress of South African Students (COSAS) and with the United Democratic Front. In 1984, he was arrested as one of the Delmas 22 when South African police attempted to crush ongoing protests against rent hikes. In 1983, Nkoli joined the Gay Association of South Africa, which was predominantly white and later formed the Saturday Group, the first black gay group in Africa.
