My experience at the ILGA Warshaw conference

One of our HIV-sam ambassadors attented the ILGA conference in Warshaw.
Read about her impressions and her experiences below.

An amazing and breathtaking conference was held in Warsaw, Poland with the focus on CHANGE. The main goal was mobilising communities, whether sub-Saharan communities or not, and assuring the rise of movements.

The conference was about homophobic behaviours in Warsaw and in other European countries. And on how to introduce change in communities through connections between LGBTI identities, cultures, ethnicities, nationalities, etc.

Discussions were held on how to ensure safety in asylums for (sub-Saharan) migrants belonging to the LGBTI community and how to identify the legislative and practical measures to ensure this safety.  

There were discussions about sexual health that brought together activists with different experiences and from different countries together.

In a nutshell the conference brought on board LGBTI, people of Faith, people of colour, allies, politicians, members of trade unions and a lot more. The main aim was to bring about ONE community and ONE movement. To mobilise people but most of all to rise in order to achieve freedom, equality and dignity, because it’s safe to say that “There’s no strength without unity.

Let’s educate ourselves about COVID-19
