LGBTI Networks in South East Europe

Activists and political party representatives meet in London to discuss methods for enhancing cooperation between LGBTI advocates and social democratic parties in the region

Following the conference in Belgrade in November 2015 on protecting and strengthening lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) rights, the Labour Party and the European Forum for Democracy and Solidarity organised a workshop on establishing LGBTI networks in South East Europe, and pushing LGBTI issues higher on the political agenda of progressive parties in South Eastern Europe.

 

The meeting gave participants the opportunity for best practice with political representatives from the Labour Party, the Netherlands, Sweden and the Party of European Socialist's (PES) Rose Network, and discuss methods for setting up LGBTI networks in their respective countries.

 

At the end of the meeting, the group expressed their commitment to continuing cooperation and dialogue between social democratic parties and LGBTI activists in the region.
