The Congress

The 1st International Congress of Attention to Sexual-Affective, Bodily and Gender Diversity will take place on September 28th, 29th and 30th, and October 1st, 2020, online.

The Congress is an academic event that will bring together some of the main research work and proposed actions concerning the LGBTI+ community.

The Congress is open to researchers, professionals and associations working for LGBTI+ rights, as well as those connected with prevention programs for the promotion of LGBTI+ health, education and social integration.

Students and other people interested in the Congress are also welcomed. This includes university research groups and international organizations working on raising awareness about LGBTI+ issues.

Our Commitment to LGBTI+ People

In recent years, gender identities, bodily diversity and sexual-affective orientations that differ from social expectations have acquired an increasing visibility, becoming part of our social life. However, LGBTI+ people continue to suffer from situations of discrimination, exclusion and violation of their rights.

This violence takes place in different areas of their daily lives: education, community and work environment. Making these violences visible, knowing and understanding them is the key to preventing and stopping them. In this sense, education is considered to be a fundamental force for change.

Program of the Congress

This Congress is one of the first academic events on this matter in Europe. It will gather some of the main LGBTI+ experts in Spain’s academic community and that of other countries.

Experts will include Stef Barozzi, Doctor in Educational Sciences at the University of Granada, renowned worldwide for his multiple publications and talks about training in sexual and gender identities; Gracia Trujillo, Doctor in Anthropology at the Complutense University of Madrid, renowned for her work as a sociologist, historian and queer feminist activist in Spain; and Lucas Platero, Doctor in Sociology and Political Sciences at the National Distance Education University (UNED), who combines his duties as a researcher and editor with his activism for sexual and reproductive rights. He is also renowned for his numerous investigations and publications in the field of Trans studies.
