GIC NORA came into existence in the autumn 2004. It was supposed to fullfil the need of spreading gender activities beyond the academic scope. Three Brno organisations participated significantly in its foundation: Gender Centrum FSS MU, association of women Medúza and Stud Brno: občanské sdružení gayů a leseb.
They founded a free association consisting of various people who participated in different activities (e.g. Equal projects, commissions, partnerships with other institutions). GIC NORA has gradually become a professional gender organisation comprising a number of dedicated experts and external coworkers.
