Lisboa: Information by QueerIST (a student-led GSA at Instituto Superior Técnico faculty)
The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia will be celebrated on 17 May.
We take this opportunity to analyze issues of the current panorama of LGBTI + rights in Portugal, stimulating a conference entitled “LGBT Youth and the Current Society”.
With this event we try to analyze the young initiatives that work within the LGBTI + theme and consider their impact and reception and discuss the need for education for sexuality. We will also visit current issues such as discrimination in health and legislation regarding gender self-determination.
