Mobilised LGBTI movement

LGBTI organisations need to cooperate to reach their joint goals, while also respecting their diversity. Change starts when they connect, begin exchanging information and become a mobilised LGBTI movement. It is when they are linked to non-LGBTI stakeholders and to broader civil society organisations that change becomes possible in society.

How do we think this works? Here are a few of our assumptions:
“The diversity and complexity of the LGBTI community demands focused and streamlined efforts to reach joint goals. Cooperation between LGBTI CBOs at all levels is essential” (Letter R in the graphic below)
“Support from the broader civil society is essential to create change. This requires networks and collaboration with non-LGBTI stakeholders” (Letter S in the graphic below)
