Join our webinar on ‘Community organising for older LGBTI persons’ on Friday, October 1 at 11 AM (CEST).
Many countries have surpassed the peak of the COVID-19 crisis and are beginning to plan phased-out endings of their lockdowns. In a webinar presented by ILGA-Europe earlier this month, participants shared the activities and strategies their organisations have used to stay connected while confined to their houses.
Community organising is a way to make sure that nobody is left behind.
We put a lot of thought and work into preparing for our first gathering of D/deaf and disabled LGBTI activists in Brussels, but during the event we learned much more about how to organise better in the future. Here are our main takeaways!
An exciting two-day event with 11 D/deaf and disabled LGBTI activists from nine European countries this month gave everyone involved some crucial take-aways and key priorities for future movement building.
It’s the largest first Pride that I have ever seen. Later we hear that we were 3000 participants!

Two cities. Two groups of LGBTI community organisers. Two events with the same name. Two very different experiences – but one common shared lesson about the significance of Pride marches in 2018.
Daina Rudusa, ILGA-Europe Advocacy and Programmes Officer
8000 people. 3 political parties. 1 business. This year’s Baltic Pride in Riga was a year of many firsts.
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.
We invite LGBTI activists working in Europe and Central Asia to join us in a series of webinars to discuss the findings.
