Title to be confirmed

Global LGBTQIA+ rights have expanded considerably in many developed countries throughout the 21st century, providing access to historically restricted opportunities for advancement for LGBTQ community members and allies. However, the rise of right-wing populist ideologies threaten the sustainability of recently established gains from marriage equality to non employment discrimination. Moreover, in the realm of education, despite gains in rights access, curriculum on LGBTQ history and culture is yet largely excluded from most state-sponsored public education, even in many so-called liberal enclaves. This paradox of rights access and limited education creates a perfect storm that serves to further limit the contributions of LGBTQ persons to civic life across the globe.

In this presentation, I discuss the contemporary success and challenges facing LGBTQIA communities with examples from around the world in developing and developed nations.

HOMOLOGY –
the comedy eduGAYtion program

After the germanwide success of HOMOLOGY, the comedy school program, an international version of the show in English is now available. With his stage character „Malte Anders“, theatre educator Timo Schweitzer offers students a humorous insight into the topic of homosexuality and the normality of being different. Malte Anders gets to the bottom of old prejudices and reaches the students at eye level by sharing his own world and the experiences of others. Among lots of other things, he makes it clear that in over 65 countries around the world it is already a crime to identify only as LGBTIQ*.

Malte’s multimedia and interactive show allows for different perspectives that show the importance of mutual respect and that it is everyone’s responsibility to stand up for the rights of others, especially the LGBTIQ* community.
