ILGA-Europe’s Newsletter becomes a magazine

Since 2001, ILGA-Europe published a quarterly Newsletter which informed its members, friends, supporters and funders about its work and about LGBT related news and developments across Europe.

For the last few years, ILGA-Europe enhanced its communications strategy and as a result the Newsletter became more a thematic resource. Now the organisation is taking a further step up – our Newsletter has become a magazine! It has increased in volume and will continue the thematic approach. The magazine will be published twice a year.

To reflect the essence of what ILGA-Europe is and works for, a title “Destination>>EQUALITY” has been given to the magazine. The first edition of our magazine is focused on transgender people’s rights.

Patricia Prendiville, Executive Director of ILGA-Europe, said:

“I hope our members and supporters will welcome yet another development towards enhancing our communications work. We believe a new title clearly identifies both the organisational dynamic and marks the ultimate destination where we want to be. We also believe the thematic approach, which has already proven to be popular with our readers, will continue providing added value for all who are interested and passionate about equality issues.

We are proud that the first edition of our magazine focuses on transgender people’s rights. This edition provides a variety of articles covering many aspects of trans people’s lives and rights: from stories of humiliation, intrusion and abuse to stories of hope and inspiration.”
