On the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia we released a new policy paper on LGBTQI exclusion in education
The policy paper 45 titled ‘Don’t look away’ was launched jointly with the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Intersex Youth and Student Organisation (IGLYO) on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia with new survey findings and analysis showing unacceptably high levels of discrimination and harassment in education. The paper was launched at the Global Conference on Promoting the Rights and Inclusion of LGBTI+ Youth in Paris, co-hosted by the Mouvement d’Affirmation des Jeunes Gais, Lesbiennes, Bi & Trans (MAG), Out Right Action International, the Mairie de Paris and the Austrian Government. It was attended by Anne Hidalgo, the Mayor of Paris, as well as three French Ministers of Foreign Affairs (Jean-Yves Le Drian), Education (Jean-Michel Blanquer), and Gender Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities (Elisabeth Moreno), as well as Wendy Morton, Minister for European Neighbourhood and the Americas in the United Kingdom.
The launch was also marked by the release of a Podcast with Erin Vlahović, and Matteo Bassetti, moderated by Rubén Ávila Rodríguez from IGLYO, which you can watch here.
