Debatteltet (13) – The global battle for LGBT rights

Onsdag den 16/7-2017 – 18:00 – 18:45
The global battle for LGBT rights Being LGBT is criminalized in 71 states, and at the global level, the situation seems to be deteriorating; President Putin is responsible for stigmatization, discrimination and persecution of LGBT persons in Russia. In Chechnya, gay men are detained and placed in concentration camps, and in the USA, president Trump is rapidly rolling back progressive policies introduced by president Obama. In this debate, national and international experts on LGBT rights will discuss how conservative forces have been able to gain such strong momentum, how we most efficiently fight this trend, and work towards a world where LGBT persons are no longer persecuted, discriminated against and killed.
The debate is in english.
