Conversation Circuit about LGBTI rightsTalks
With interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language.
The various sessions will be opened by ILGA Portugal.
2019 is the 45th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution and the 50th of the Stonewall Uprising, which led to the movement demanding Human Rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people (LGBTI) and their families.
In this year’s celebrations, the ILGA Association Portugal is aiming to break down barriers between the struggles and symbolism of the values enshrined in the April Revolution and LGBTI rights, in an integrative approach towards freedom and equality.
With this in mind, there’ll be a series of conversations held in the libraries of the multicultural and diverse city of Lisbon. In an informal, but illuminating, setting we’ll be reflecting on the importance of 25th April, its impact on Portugal and LGBTI rights, as well as the challenges that still await us as an integrative, democratic society which promotes equality.
