Intersectionality in LGBTI policies

The aims of this pilot projects is to draw together common knowledge so that an intersectional perspective can be incorporated in policies aimed at LGBTI persons, where the acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex. The intersectional approach aims to acknowledge that all people, including those who identify as LGBTI, are affected by multiple inequalities and that this intersection creates a new kind of discrimination, which differs from the sum of these inequalities.

Goals

  • Share work experiences with LGBTI people crossed by inequalities of gender, age, national origin, deprivation of liberty, among others.
  • Generate, from the exchange of learning, a methodology for the elaboration of social and local gender policies towards LGBTI people, with a focus on intersectionality.
  • Train officials from the participating cities in intersectional approaches to the LGBTI population.
  • Implement shared monitoring mechanisms to measure the incorporation of the intersectional approach in local policies.
