Sexual rights in the Eastern Partnership   - Challenges and Opportunities

Sexual discrimination in Eastern partnership countries is a huge problem to human rights. Meet activists from Georgia, Moldova, Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia and Azerbaijan who share their challenges and visions for the future.

When:  November 21

Time:      09.00-11.00 (Coffée and sandwich from 08.30)

Venue:    Hörsalen, Sida, Valhallav. 199, Stockholm.

People who are lesbian, gay, bi-, trans- or intersexual (LGBTI) remain the least tolerated groups in the Eastern Partnership countries. On the other hand, organizations from the civil society
working for the rights of LGBTI are growing and work hard to take advantage of opportunities, such as EU aspirations.  In the foreseeable future LGBTI issues will continue to be highon the public and political agenda, but very few politicians in the region are openly supportive. Instead, many are openly homophobic.

The panel discussion will be moderated by The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights, RFSL.

Welcome,
Elsa Håstad
Director of Reform and Selective Cooperation, Sida

The seminar will be in Swedish/English.

Please register no later than November 18 to: maria.myrman@sida.se
