22 March 2006


The next World Conference of the International Lesbian and Gay Association, better known as ILGA, will be held in Geneva, from March 27 to April 3,2006. It will be organised by a coalition of Swiss LGBT groups.

The Conference will be held at the same time as the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, an international forum which has failed to this day to recognise us and our rights. It will be another opportunity to remind the UN of the imperative necessity to explicitly declare that sexual orientation and the free expression of gender identity are human rights.

Alternatively, you can let us lead you through this short presentation to become more familiar with the role and importance of ILGA's conferences within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Movement worldwide.

Check the programme for two preconferences called Transgender Caucas and Transgender Issues

  1. Hi Malika, I came across your site via the link on Nina's (Diary of a Gingerbread Girl) site. Thanks for these links in your post. I can't go to Geneva, but I quite agree - the free expression of gender identity has to be a human right and is something certainly worth campaigning for.

    Best regards
