MOOD
What is the social climate like for LGBTI people in your country?
How is it like to be an LGBTI in schools?
En Perú no existen programas que permitan hacer llegar a los niños temas sombre diversidad sexual puesto que nuestra sociedad es bastante conservadora y muy apegada a las normas de la Iglesia Ortodoxa, valga la redundancia.

Are religious institutions actively campaigning against LGBTI rights?
Las religiones en nuetro país todavía no aceptan la condición del homosexual como algo normal, intentan con muhcos métodos alterarlo o de otro modo condenarlo pero no existen campañas activas a pesar de que muchas de estas iglesias cuentan con miembros activos LGTBI.

Las acogen como personas que tienen dificultades y/o están confundidas, son tolerantes pero no han buscado entender a las personas homosexuales.

Is discrimination against gays, lesbians, bisexual and trans very common in day to day life? Please specify differences between the various communities.
Si, por el hecho de que no se incentivan programas contra la homofobia y por el contrario se impulsa el repudio de la comunidad LGTBI. Personas como los trans y los gyas son violentados muy frecuentemente por el hecho de generar polémica, sin embargo las lesbianas están teniendo un poco más de respeto en ciertos casos y los bisexuales generalmente pasan desapercibidos.
Is discrimination against gays,lesbians, bisexual and trans very common at work? Please specify differences between the various communities.
Si, y las poosibilidades a se cierran ante el conocimiento de la opción sexual. Más que nada es un temor de asociados con miembros LGBTI y estar a merced de la opinión pública.

Si, en diversos medios de comunicación algunas personas públicas hacen referencia de miembros de nuestra comunidad con insultos y/o palabras despectivas, otros pueden mostrarse tolerantes pero hasta cierto punto.
