INCLUSIVE SOCIETY, SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND GENDER IDENTITY

Discrimination and exclusion on the grounds of sexual orientation and/or gender identity (SOGI) is a violation of human rights but unfortunately a reality in many countries. This is in some places reinforced by legislation that restrict, harass or outright prohibit groups working on SOGI issues. EED’s discreet support is crucial in such cases.

Overview of EED support

EED supports numerous initiatives in the field that seek to raise awareness of SOGI issues and empower activists to raise awareness in their communities about both the rights and violations of rights of LGBT+ persons, counter widespread misconceptions and help promote inclusion.
