An international human rights conference focused on the LGBTI+ community in Europe

Rotterdam is Opening Up. Opening Up to diversity, music, entertainment and Eurovision fans. In the spirit of opening up to others Dona Daria and Arminius are opening up to human rights. In this international human rights program we welcome ILGA Europe and Amnesty International to talk about the rights and position of the LGBTI+ community in Europe. 

In the history of Eurovision we have seen progress been made and progress being lost within the participating countries. When it comes to the rights concerning sexual- and gender diversity we want Europe to shine a light on the community that makes up such a big part of the Eurovision fanbase. We have seen rainbowflags being banned in the audience and some participating countries have LGBTI+ free zones and put LGBTI+ activists on trial and in jail.

Together with our friends and partners we will dive into the European context of LGBTI+ rights, what countries can learn from eachother’s best practices and what LGBTI+ activism means in different contexts. The program will consist of a main program with talks and Eurovision intermezzo’s and a break-out room program to meet, connect and learn.

We hope to welcome you to join us May 13th so together we can open up to human rights.
