Who we are
Although the conception took more than a year, our organisation was officially born in the founding assembly on the 17th April 2004, since -after much thought- we came to the conclusion that the things we wanted to achieve could not be implemented in the context of a non-formal group, but needed the support of an officially recognised frame..
We add our voice and powers with all the other members of the community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women to support the right in our sexuality.
Many voices, when united, can become very strong and be heard.
Where do we aim
Believing that all non-coercive sexual behaviours are equal manifestations of human sexuality, our basic aim is:
- Mutual acceptance, support and solidarity between lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women, regardless of gender, ethnicity, culture, religion, language, age, health status, body status or other characteristics.
- Advocating for and asseρting the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women, and fighting prejudices, stereotypes, stigma and social exclusion against them.
- Raising awareness and informing the public opinion, family, institutions, organised or not stakeholders and society in general on issues around sexuality, gender identity, sexual orientation and sexual health.
Our organisation is active in
- Advocating for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women with acts, interventions and attestations to the relevant stakeholders.
- Advocating for the legal recognition of marriage for same-sex couples.
- Monitoring media for cases of derogatory references to sexual orientation, and intervening.
- Tackling incidents of violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women (e.g. in the family, police interventions, etc)
- Raising awareness and educating lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans men and women on issues regarding self-identification, collective identity formation, activism, etc.
