International dialogue on culture/tradition and its intersection with gender and sexuality

Human rights defenders from all around the world met in Istanbul for an International Dialogue on the intersections of culture/tradition with human rights related to gender and sexuality.

Co-organized by ARC International and MantiQitna Network, this meeting allowed people to share experiences in advocating human rights related to LGBTI persons as well as strengthened knowledge on monitoring, documenting and reporting LGBTI-related human rights violations.

The International Dialogue gathered not only human rights defenders from Middle East and North African countries (MENA), but also from other regions.
