Fight for equality gets new face!

Today ILGA-Europe launches new visual identity. This is yet another step to further strengthen ILGA-Europe’s position, improve our communication strategy and to provide better lobbying, networking and information support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organisations in Europe in their fight for equality and justice.

During the last year ILGA-Europe made significant progress improving its communications. One of the major steps was a launch of a new website last October. Not only the new website now provides a better presentation and overview of ILGA-Europe’s works, but also creates new opportunities and possibilities for ILGA-Europe and its members to exchange information and knowledge, more effectively coordinate campaigning and lobbying efforts.

New visual identity is a further step to update and modernise ILGA-Europe’s image and position as one of the main players in the field of equality and human rights in Europe. It is also a chance to better represent such values of the organisation as growing professionalism, dynamism as well as the nature and main constituency of the organisation – LGBT people in Europe.

Riccardo Gottardi, Co-chair of the ILGA-Europe Executive Board, said:

“We are pleased to launch our new visual identity as a next step in improving our position and communications. Our new website has already significantly improved our presentation and communications and there are more plans and ideas for further development and improvements. In a few months time we are planning to launch a new database which will revolutionalise the way we communicate with our members and the way our members can network among themselves.

We hope that our effort to fully employ wonders of the contemporary communications technologies alongside with a fresher, more stylish and dynamic design will empower LGBT organisations to achieve greater equality and justice in Europe.”
