Description and results


The project aims to promote lesbian, gay, transsexual and intersex (LGBTI) people's meaningful participation in peacebuilding efforts relating to the Colombian Peace Agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and other ongoing conflicts. The project also works to help ensure LGBTI victims' rights to truth, justice, reparations and guarantees of non-recurrence, and promote a culture of inclusion. Project activities include: (1) documenting conflict-related violence against LGBTI people in Colombia; (2) providing educational talks and psychosocial support to empower victims and bring awareness of the impact of conflict-related violence on LGBTI people; (3) providing political, technical and administrative support to grassroots peacebuilding initiatives that are developed and led by young women's lesbian, bisexual, trans and intersex organizations; and (4) supporting a learning exchange to Canada in order to collaborate with LGBTI groups outside of the country.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced meaningful participation of LGBTI people in peace-building efforts; and (2) improved responses of state institutions and society to the rights of LGBTI persons and communities.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of September 2021 include : (1) increased participation by LGBTI victims and survivors of the conflict in Colombia’s transitional justice processes; (2) increased public recognition by Colombia’s Transitional Justice Mechanism, namely the Colombian Truth Commission, the Special Jurisdiction for Peace, and the Search Unit for Disappeared Persons, on the violations committed against LGBTI victims of the conflict; and (3) increased efforts by the Transitional Mechanism to integrate LGBTI-responsive practices into their operations.
