LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia


Demonstration and demonisation – life for Georgia’s queer communities

Levan Berianidze, Executive Director of Equality Movement, Georgia.

LGBTQI clubs and bars have played the crucial role in mobilising LGBTQI people, creating a sense of community and belonging both globally and in Georgia.

Therefore, the attacks on these clubs were seen as the attacks on our homes, on the spaces where we can enjoy our freedom and share our love.

Björn van Roozendaal, ILGA-Europe Programmes Director

Political leaders, decision makers and foundations need to hear one clear message: supporting human rights work is now more important than ever. Resources have to increase, not decrease.
