ILGA-Europe and Autism Europe are looking for inputs on the specific needs and struggles of LGBTI people on the autism spectrum and their families in order to prepare a submission to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.
The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe has been drawing attention on the stark inequalities that People with autism experience in many areas, from access to education to difficulties within the justice systems. The Assembly is now working on a report titled “Supporting people with autism and their families”, which will result in a resolution to be adopted by the Assembly in 2020.
We are working to prepare a short submission on the specific needs and struggles of LGBTI people on the autism spectrum and their families, and are looking for inputs to this submission.
Inputs can be:
- focused at the local, regional, or national level, or presenting a full Council of Europe perspective
- focused on LGBTI autistic people as a whole or on specific groups within the LGBTI communities
The format for submissions is informal, and can include individual testimonies, statistical data, or descriptions of situations and practices affecting these communities.
Inputs are due by 2 December 2019.
