The Cape Town recommendations

20 July, 2011
The delegates of the Third EI- PSI Sexual Diversity Forum in Cape Town reaffirm the Porto Alegre Declaration and the recommendations of the Second International LGBT Forum in Vienna, recognize the progress made thus far in the implementation of these, and recommend that the Executive Boards of EI and PSI continue to pursue recommendations from both forums.

At the EI-PSI Third Sexual Diversity Forum in Cape Town, South Africa that was held on 18 and 19 July 2011, 150 delegates from 45 countries gathered together, starting on Nelson Mandela’s 93rd birthday, to reflect on significant gains realized to advance lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights internationally, nationally and locally, and to identify challenges and next steps in our collective struggle for sexual diversity equality.  Recognising the international momentum to protect the rights based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and recognising the diversity inherent in the LGBT communities, delegates shared experiences about the many forms of discrimination, violence and inequality we face, and focused on strategies to advance our rights in schools, in our workplaces, in our public services and in the broader society.
