Launch of the first ever ILGA-Europe glossary

Published: July 18, 2011

It can sometimes be difficult to navigate in the jungle of words in the LGBTI activist and policy world. This extensive glossary will help you through special terms, abbreviations and acronyms that ILGA-Europe uses in its daily work.

The purpose of the glossary is first of all to knowledge share and streamline the usage of the language when it comes to LGBTI related issues and the work of ILGA-Europe. It can therefore be useful for LGBTI activists, media, civil servants, students and researchers.

The glossary also contains don’ts – this is from ILGA-Europe’s experience that terms have been misused or misunderstood, which can be counterproductive for the work of ILGA-Europe and its members on a national level.

Finally ILGA-Europe has created a list of used abbreviations with a link to their meaning.
