LGBTI equality and human rights in Europe and Central Asia

What we do

Changing hearts and minds in order to end the social and legal discrimination which LGBTI people face cannot be done in a heartbeat. It is it a long struggle with many challenges.

Strategic litigation is the use of court cases as part of a strategy to achieve broader legal and social change.

The LGBTI movement is the driving force behind creating sustainable change for LGBTI people. This movement consists of paid activists, NGOs and community groups, volunteers and academics. But it also goes beyond that to include like-minded people working on our issues in other environments, such as policy-makers, journalists, trade unions or employers.
