Many Latin American countries are lauded as having progressive laws on gender identity and same-sex marriage. But the region also has some of the highest rates of violence against LGBTI people in the world. Laws clearly aren’t enough to stop violence against LGBTI people.
But what are the root causes of negative attitudes and violence towards LGBTI people in Latin America? What is the lived reality for LGBTI people in Latin America? What about LGBTI Latin American migrants living in Ireland? Join them for a discussion on these issues, with Jessica Tenorio, intersex activist; Lu Saborío, trans nonbinary artist; Rodrigo Souza from Brazilian Left Front; and Jim Loughran from Frontline Defenders.
Where: Outhouse, 105 Capel Street, Dublin
