Europe is a continent of diverse and at times even conflicting realities for LGBTI community. While in some countries the long-lasting struggle of human rights activists has succeeded in widely expanding the range of legal recognition and social acceptance of LGBTI people, we are witnessing a decrease of political will in pushing forward anti-discrimination policies or even violent breaches of fundamental freedoms and rights on LGBTI people in others. Furthermore, the current wave of crisis rapidly moving through economical, political, and social landscape of Europe is threatening already gained victories of LGBTI movement. We –the leaders, members, and supporters of European LGBTI movement - are standing at the crossroads of change.

Taking all of this into consideration, the ILGA-Europe board believes that now is the right moment for us to look reflectively to the past and current developments, and of leadership strategies in the field of LGBTI activism, to learn from our successes and failures, and most importantly to think together how can we create a sustainable movement working for change that will lead us towards European society with equality for all. Let’s gather to MOVE forward together!
