FELGTB

Description:

The State Federation of Lesbian, Gay, Transsexual and Bisexual Individuals (FELGTB)  is, first and foremost, a space of coordination and exchange for the LGBT association movement. It is a shared project involving all kinds of associations (more than 50) from big and small cities across most autonomous regions, serving students, youth, athletes, transsexual individuals, people with disabilities, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual women, people living with HIV, LGBT followers, migrant communities, among others. Every year FELGTB holds workshops to reflect and debate on issues including health and HIV, international cooperation and education, and organizes meetings with young people, families, and lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and LGBT follower policy-makers where strategies, formulas and experiences are shared and defined. FELGTB also offers care and support services to LGBT young people and families and career counseling. It coordinates the Education Network of talks on sexual diversity in schools and supports a demand-driven strategy with one voice which is heard at the conferences that the member associations participate in every three years.
