With ignorance comes fear, from fear comes bigotry. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to undertake affirmative actions in the education of the audience as the key to acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer people.

In order to eliminate all forms of violence against non-heterosexual people and sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression motivated discrimination, it is vital to fight the hate speech widespread in the society as a result of the current stereotypes and prejudices. We think that the best possible way to build a positive public perception of the people living out of the traditional society model based on heterosexuality, heteronormativity and gender binarism, and to influence on the process of social inclusion of the marginalized groups, is through promotion and assertion of human rights and the rule of law. So, let's join our forces because together we can do more!
