The issue of the anti-gender movements and their opposition to progressive reforms and human rights of the marginalized communities has been receiving increasing public attention. However, while examples of Poland and Hungary are often made in the European context, the phenomenon stretches far outside the EU's borders and is affecting lives and work of the LGBT groups in countries like Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine.
So, what exactly are the anti-gender groups rallying around and how are the LGBT activists resisting the backlash in an already difficult political and socio-economic climate?
Tune in to the seminar and hear from the human rights defenders working on the ground.
