I clearly remember the moment we spoke about this project for the first time. It was the morning after celebrations for my 40 years. The evening before, I drunk as I had 20, so I made twice the effort to follow Raffaele’s speech. Hangovers have strict rules.
Who is Raffaele? Who am I? What was the project about?

We find political participation of LGBT+ people (as well as representation of our community within political parties and their programs) of utter importance for the overall advancement of the position of LGBT+ community in one society.
Monica Panayi, Vice-President of Accept Cyprus
Being an activist in a small country like Cyprus can be a herculean task for both ACCEPT LGBT Cyprus (ACCEPT) and the AIDS Solidarity Movement (ASM). A lot of times, the limited access to funding and resources makes our job extremely difficult. Therefore, creating something for the better good is an important achievement.
Laura Piazza - ILGA Europe Senior Campaign & Programmes Officer
There are many ways to tell the story of Creating Opportunities, as many as the number of activists, community members, allies and experts that made the programme possible over the last 4 years.
