LGBTIQ+

  •  The law against LGBTIQ+ phobia

On the 10 th of October, 2014 the Catalan Parliament passed a law guaranteeing the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons toward eradicating homophobia. The act takes account of some of the demands made by the collective in what refers to protection, rights and freedom from discrimination. We have rights, know them and defend them!

If you’ve been assaulted, LGBTI phobia can file a complaint under this law. At the Observatori contra l’Homofobia they explain how to do it: http://observatori-contra-homofobia.blogspot.com.es/p/guia-antidiscriminatoria.html
