LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia


This year we will pay particular attention to the following themes:

  • Resilience in the face of populism and growing opposition 
  • Racism, structural inequalities and socio-economic justice 

Our programme will offer space to discuss a variety of other related topics, including asylum, the anti-trans movement, the role of the private sector and trade unions, the EU LGBTI strategy and much, much more. To get a first look at the programme for The Gathering this year, please download our preliminary programme.
