PlanetRomeo Foundation is an independent, registered non-profit established in 2009 to contribute to the fight for equal rights and opportunities for LGBTI+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) people. With the support of ROMEO BV, the company behind PLANETROMEO, the Foundation is uniquely placed to draw strength from one of the largest online platforms.
PlanetRomeo Foundation envisions a world without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics; a world in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people have the same rights and opportunities as anyone else; a world which values and respects differences in sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics.
Our support focuses on achieving societal change in order to improve the position of LGBTI+ people throughout the world, with an emphasis on the most disadvantaged regions and communities. We also focus on mobilizing and activating the LGBTI+ community in those challenging contexts. We do not initiate projects ourselves, and we set out to be a stepping stone and fill funding gaps between zero funding and access to larger grants.
