LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

European Equality Gala

Thank you for attending the European Equality Gala 2021 and being part of our journey towards a world where every LGBTI person can live free to be who they are, love who they love, and express themselves wholly, without fear or restraint. 

Although this year we couldn't be together again at an in-person event, we were excited to host ILGA-Europe’s second online Equality Gala, which featured a range of exciting guests:

  • Bestselling Turkish author Elif Shafak
  • BBC LGBT correspondent Ben Hunte 
  • Drag legend LaDiva Live 
  • Ariadna Vigo, DESPERTrans 
  • Danijel Kalezić, Queer Montenegro

Watch the 2021 GALA

We hope you enjoyed, learned from and were inspired by our programme. Our donation page will remain open until 30 June 2021, so please do consider pledging if you didn’t yet have the chance:
