Last weekend it was London Pride! It was an opportunity to celebrate with pride the lives of LGBTIQA+ people and remind us that we still have a long way to go in ensuring that people's differences of any kind are respected and celebrated instead of used as a base for discrimination. This is even truer when it comes to LGBTIQA+ migrants and refugees who not only suffer discrimination based on their sexual and gender identity but are often the target of xenophobic and racist discrimination and violence!
Now more than ever, we are reminded of the importance of EpsiLon project, which works to improve the lives of LGBTIQA refugees, migrants and asylum seekers, whom research has identified as one of the most vulnerable groups in modern Europe. Just a few weeks ago, EpsiLon project issued its first newsletter to celebrate Pride Month!
Epsilon e-newsletter presents the project’s latest findings, tools and courses as well as opportunities for involvement and collaboration. Funded under Erasmus+ and delivered by a pan-European consortium, Epsilon is a unique LGBTIQA-led project that aims to develop a set of highly innovative educational tools and training courses (face to face and online) informed by the real needs of LGBTIQA migrants and refugees addressing issues of dignity, respect, inclusion and discrimination.
