LBQ Women

LBQ women are currently defined as lesbian, bisexual and queer cis and trans women and cis and trans women with non-normative or marginalized sexualities, while recognizing that these categories and labels are contested and ever evolving. Normative frameworks such as patriarchy and heteronormativity have invisibilized LBQ women in many societies, and even within the LGBTI movement they are often underrepresented. They face violence and exclusion in every sphere of their lives. COC is facilitating a process that brings together activists from all over the world, aiming at the organization of the first ever Global Conference. Also COC is part of an orchestrated effort to increase LBQ specific funding that is meeting the needs of LBQ women on the ground.
