What is behind us
We have been intensively focusing on the topic of the Romani LGBTQ+ minority and multiple discrimination since 2014, when we organized the first ever official meeting of Romani people, not just gays and lesbians, in the Czech Republic. The event was held virtually in secret for security reasons and the outcomes were anonymous. However, information about the conference spread
quickly and the event received a great response. In the following years we took our activities on the topic of the queer Roma community to an international level and organized two conferences. At these conferences, the European Roma LGBTQ+ Platform was established, with the long-term goal of promoting the rights of this minority at the community and political level.
