Omphalos organization was born in Perugia in 1992 with the aim to fight against the indifference of the city over homosexual people.
In 2005 Omphalos joined the two mainly italian LGBT organizations: Arcigay and ArciLesbica. Thanks to the collaboration of many volunteers Omphalos organizes political events, cultural activities to promote social inclusion, support, prevention and enterteinment of the local LGBT community. During the last years the organization worked in synergy with local institutions, achieved important goals for the LGBT community in Umbria, including: registration of civil unions in the municipality of Perugia, the inclusion in the new Regional statute of a rule that actually protects not married couples and the battle against the adoption of a regional law about families that excludes us completely.
Currently within the organization several groups are working: a group of young people (school projects), an hosting group, a group of transsexuals, a sport group, an health group (dissemination of information for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases).
