European Forum

of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Christian Groups

Breathing in the Spirit of Human Rights

Funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands

The purpose of the project is to build on the European Forum’s experiences in advocating on behalf of LGBT Christian groups and to increase its capacity for conducting strategic, sustained advocacy work that integrates all aspects of the organizations’ work (including institutional development, coalition-building, counteracting fundamentalism, advocacy at the level of the European institutions). Planning and systematizing the advocacy work is ultimately intended to empower the European Forum to conduct more effective, more proactive advocacy in combating religious based homophobia.
