Plenary #8: A Way Forward for the LGBTI+ Community


With the Human Rights Conference coming to a closure, we want to look ahead with our distinguished speakers, each in a position to make a change for a community under pressure. In this hour-long conversational panel moderated by Susanne Branner Jespersen, we want the speakers to reflect on the status of their work for the LGBTI+ Community and identify the main struggles they see in the world we currently live in. As the world is still struggling with the ongoing pandemic, we want to learn the next steps that our speakers feel need to be taken by the the CoE, EU, FRA, OAS and UN to guarantee inclusion of all LGBTI+ Community members.
