May 17th, is the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia which aims to coordinate international events to raise awareness of worldwide LGBT rights violations and to stimulate interest in LGBT rights work.
To mark this occasion our friends at Interagency Regional Analysts Network (IARAN) will be showcasing their new report ‘A global outlook on LGBT: social exclusion through 2030’ which analyses the extent of the hidden humanitarian crisis facing LGBTI individuals around the world.
Using strategic foresight, they have identified the major drivers of LGBTI social exclusion and considered their evolution to 2030, aligning to the time-line of the SDGs to ground the conversation in the leave no one behind agenda.
At the May 17th event the report’s findings will be highlighted via a lively panel discussion including:
- Michel Maietta, Director, IARAN
- Yves Yomb, Coordinator, Africagay contre le sida
- Leila Zadeh, Executive Director, UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group
Following the panel, they will host a drinks reception which will feature a photography exhibit, selling the work of Sergey Neamoscou. All proceeds from this event will fund study grants for Ugandan LGBTI leaders.
The event will take place on 6.30 – 8.30pm Thursday, May 17 2018
Held at Amnesty International, 25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA
