PlanetRomeo Foundation is glad to present the Annual Report 2022. We’ve shared a summary below. The full report can be downloaded through the link.
In 2022, the LGBTQI+ community worldwide achieved many landmarks after years of community organizing and activism: bans on conversion therapy and increased legal protection in various countries, along with the legalization of same-sex marriages in several others. Community building works! At the same time, the community mourned the loss of many LGBTQI+ people. We were horrified by the Anti-Homosexuality Bill in Uganda, introduced in March 2023. LGBTQI+ refugees face incredible hardships while on the move, in refugee camps and shelters, or in their destination countries. Sport events and leagues worldwide are increasingly inaccessible to transgender and gender non-conforming people, and cultural sectors are still recovering from many years of COVID lockdowns.
The PlanetRomeo Foundation-team is more than ever committed to making a small but real difference for LGBTQI+ people around the world, thanks to the contribution of Romeo BV and the Romeo- Datingapp users.
