We are the only non-profit organisation in Europe dedicated to working with members of the Roma LGBTQ+ minority and the issue of their multiple discrimination. Not only does mainstream society often discriminate against members of this minority because of their ethnicity or sexual orientation, but discrimination also comes from members of the Roma community themselves. This discrimination concerns queer identity, which is considered unacceptable by traditionally oriented Roma people. The consequences of multiple discrimination can be excommunication, homelessness or abandonment by the family.

Our aims

To improve the information available to crucial stakeholders about the position of LGBTQ+ people of Romani origin in selected countries.

To raise awareness and increase the amount of information available to the public about LGBTQ+ people of Romani origin.

To strengthen the European call for national-level policies on the integration of Romani communities in the Member States so such policies reflect the needs of the diverse composition of the groups representing the population of Roma.

To increase advocacy for applying an intersectional approach to combating discrimination against LGBTQ+ people of Romani origin.

To consolidate and to expand the functionality of the International LGBTQ+ Roma Platform.
This minority often faces discrimination not only on the part of a majority because of their ethnicity or sexual orientation but also on the part of Romany society which tends to be very traditional, perceives queerness as a taboo.
Roma LGBTQ+ are sometimes excommunicated from their families or the whole community and they end up homeless, without their family and friends.  

With the support of the European Commission, we are striving for systemic change together with our partner organizations, Diverse Youth Network of Hungary and QUO VADIS of Slovakia.
