In 2021 and 2022, Destvie will continue to be active in supporting the LGBTI community in the country and creating partnerships with other NGOs to raise awareness of the difficulties faced by people of different sexual orientations in Bulgaria and the steps we can take if we witness discrimination.
We plan to hold online meetings (webinars) with representatives of the civil society sector in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna and Veliko Tarnovo.
If you are an NGO representative and would like to join our upcoming meetings, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About LGBT Deystvie: Deystvie is an organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of LGBTI people in Bulgaria through legislative change and regulation of the rights of same-sex partners and their families, criminalization of hate crimes, and a legally regulated procedure for gender reassignment. Our vision is to achieve full legal recognition and social inclusion of LGBTI people in Bulgarian society where they feel safe and recognized.
Since 2014 LGBT Youth Deystvie has been providing free counselling and legal assistance to people from the LGBTI community for violations of their rights. You can register on our legal platform through this link: pravo.deystvie.org.
This publication is produced in the framework of the National LGBTI Legal Programme project. The main goal of the project is to empower the LGBTI community by providing direct access to legal protection through the National LGBTI Legal Programme in the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna, Burgas and Veliko Tarnovo. The filing of cases leads to official national statistics and official coverage of an existing problem, which in turn will lead to changes in legislation and improved lives for LGBTI people in Bulgaria.
