Au coeur de l’orage: La fermeture des espaces de la société civile LGBT au Kirghizistan, en Indonésie, au Kenya et en Hongrie

The German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Lesbian and Gay Federation in Germany (LSVD), and GPP member Dreilinden hosted a ​1.5 day meeting on Closing Space​ May 31-June 1, in Berlin. This meeting was organized in response to our ​Perfect Storm​ report on the closing space impacts for LGBTI communities, and  GPP Director Matthew Hart presented on the Perfect Storm report in a conference session. That morning, GPP hosted a donor breakfast meeting in partnership with Foundation EVZ and member fund Dreilinden, attended by 25 representatives of 20 grantmaking organizations, of which only 5 are currently funding LGBTI movements. See more info at our event page here.

At the Ariadne Annual Meeting in April 2017, GPP presented a session on “​The State of Lesbian Movements Across Europe - Are Foundations Meeting the Opportunity?” with moderator Ise Bosch (Dreilinden), and presenters Mariam Gagoshashvili (Astraea), Happy Mwende Kinyili (Mama Cash), and Alice Coffin & Silvia Casalino.  GPP member Urgent Action Fund also hosted a plenary session on “Working through the cracks: experiences of feminist activism.”

In this working paper for iNGOs, GPP Member Dreilinden presents essential demands of the 8th Rainbow Philanthropy Conference addressing LGBT* – and in some respects intersex – children in development cooperation.
