Youth workshop in Sri Lanka

EQUAL GROUND in Sri Lanka organized a 2-day residential workshop, bringing 20 youth organization representatives – both LGBTIQ and straight – together in the fight for equal rights.

The workshop covered various topics such as: human rights and difficulties faced by members of the LGBTIQ community, gender identity, gender-based violence, communication skills and other topics. The participants who joined the workshop also engaged in a field assignment in order to find the best approach for introducing human rights topics and LGBTIQ issues to peers.

In follow-up monthly meetings, they shared their experiences and discussed the best advocacy practices in their mutual communities. More information can be found on the EQUAL GROUND project page.
