The South East Region LGBT Group met on Saturday 20th May at UNISON Centre in London.
Dr Jasna Magic from ILGA – Europe spoke about the challenges facing many LGBT people across Europe including the appalling situation facing LGBT people in Chechnya.
ILGA-Europe – the European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) is an international non-governmental umbrella organisation bringing together 490 organisations from 45 European countries. ILGA-Europe was established as a separate region of ILGA and an independent legal entity in 1996. ILGA itself was created in 1978.
South East Region of UNISON is now affiliated to ILGA Europe and it’s worth taking a look at the links below to see how much more work needs to be done to further the rights of LGBT people across Europe.
